We love leopard prints. We can’t remember anything we’ve ever bought that was a leopard print that we regret buying (and like so many, we’ve had plenty of buyer’s remorse through the years when it comes to fashion). For some reason, animal prints – especially leopard print – never go out of style. So you can wear a favorite piece a lot, or a little, for years and years, and you’ll always be both trendy and timeless. How great is that? Leopard prints are ubiquitous for fall-winter 2018-19, making it a perfect time to invest in a piece or two.
The endless appeal of leopard seems to be based on its symbolism. It can signify a number of attributes and goals: power, playfulness, seduction, provocation, fearlessness. It’s all in the attitude of the wearer, but be warned. The great Christian Dior himself said: “If you are fair and sweet, don’t wear it.”
The good news? Whether you opt for just a flash of print, or decide to go all-in – whether you’re heading for the slopes or the sand this upcoming holiday, there’s a perfect leopard print out there for you.
The even better news? While all the items here are still full-price, leopard was such a hot trend this summer that there are a number of designer leopard pieces already on sale – perfect for warm weather wear-now occasions.
