The modish, retro way of wearing animal print feels a little old hat these days. Forget the flick of eyeliner, textured hair and ankle boots that used to be mandatory with a leopard faux fur. Today’s modern woman wears leopard, zebra and snake with a little more imagination and flair. Read on for inspiration.
Dress the print down with a casual sweatshirt or hoodie. There’s nothing Bet Lynch about this ensemble.
Smart loafers dilute down the sexiness of a leopard print. Adding a bright pop of colour underneath draws focus away from the pattern – animal print can easily overwhelm an outfit and your silhouette, but it shouldn’t.

Convinced? Here are four chic and sophisticated animal print pieces.
