Resurgence: Leopard Print

It’s the sartorial trend that never officially left the scene..give or take a few depatures and returns, leopard print is back for the 2019/2020 season and its’ chicer than ever!

Rewind some years and your probably likely to remember your Mother or Grandmother wearing leopard print! It still remains one of the very few trends embraced by a multitude of generations.

In this week’s blogpost, I’ve put together a go anywhere on-trend outfit that’s perfect for Summer, featuring leopard print. When investing in this timeless bold print, you  can select any style of clothing and it will do all the work for you.

For the purpose of this look,  I opted to work into my Summer wardrobe this leopard print blouse from H & M (available in stores). Light-weight in fabric and timeless with a long sleeve, styling is the easy part.

Having worn this in the cooler months too, I wanted to bring it into Summer and create a look that I could wear on weekends. In order to achieve street style status, team your timeless pieces with a distressed denim shorts for a look that oozes edge.

The denim shorts that I am wearing are available from Decjuba, the high-waisted fit and distressed rips provide enough edge whilst still looking polished.

If you don’t already have a good pair of denim shorts in your wardrobe, then I recommend Decjuba as they specialize in heaps of edgy denim pieces that are ideal for elevating your look.When putting this look together, I deliberately tucked the shirt into the shorts to give a more casual look and made a small tie with the fabric at the bottom. Shirts can be great options to work into your weekend wardrobe, just remember to style them in a relaxed way in order to gain more mileage.

Team a double circle buckle belt with your shorts to create definition and add a touch of style. The belt that I am wearing is available from H &M. The double circle belt is an extremely on-trend piece at the moment, which will raise your street credit for sure!

Finish off your look, with a pair of patent strappy espadrille sandals for up to the minute style. Taking over from the winter loafer, espadrilles are slowly becoming my go-to Summer sandal.

High in style and unique in design, these shoes will have you covered all Summer long! Wearing leopard print doesn’t always have to be traditional, with a few style twists and on-trend accessories you can keep your look forever fresh!
