Like it or love it (you love it, really) a touch of leopard print in your wardrobe can work wonders in several ways. It needn’t be tacky and it needn’t be overkill. To make sure you get it right (yes, it can go very very wrong on occasion) every single time, here we have put together six?gorgeous outfit ideas?from which you’ll get all the leopard print inspiration you need.?And if you weren’t a lover of leopard print before, you’ll certainly have an appreciation for it afterwards.

For the purposes of this article, and because it’s winter, and we’re slightly obsessed with grey, we have gone for some grey focused leopard print, which is extremely wearable and very chic every single time.

Each look has been constructed around one key Leopard print item; get ready to swoon or… roar (like a leopard, you see).
