As the cold weather is well and truly here, I was on the hunt for a long woolly cardigan that would look stylish, whilst also keeping me warm. I was after a particular style: it had to be on the long side, and not be too thin or too thick. When I have my mind set on a certain style, I refuse to settle for anything less!
Yesterday, I went to meet a friend and popped into Sportsgirl quickly beforehand. I was browsing the sales racks and then I found it. Long, woolly and leopard print…it was surely designed just for me! I’ve always had a huge obsession with leopard print. In fact, one of my first ‘grown up outfit’ was a pair of leopard print leggings with a matching black velour jacket with leopard trim. I know it sounds simply hideous, but at the time I really thought I was stylish! Haha
Over the years I have amassed a collection of leopard print, from shoes to bags and everything in between. But you have to be careful with leopard print, as it can look tacky very easily. To avoid looking like Nanny Fine, ensure the fabric is not ‘cheap’ looking, and try to only have one leopard print piece on at a time; head to toe leopard print is not really the best look for anyone!

I plan to wear this with jeans and a cute camisole for a night out. Add a pair of pointy toed heels and it makes a really stylish yet comfortable outfit.
What do you think of leopard print? Do you love it/loathe it?
