Leopard print is one of those trends that never dies, and each season we see it to a greater or lesser degree across the catwalk collections.

Thanks to designers like Dolce & Gabanna and Roberto Cavalli who have made leopard print their signature, it has become one of the few “staple” prints. Like an LBD or a camel coat, a leopard print anything is a must in every woman’s wardrobe.

For some, leopard print conjures up images of Bet Lynch from age-old episodes of Coronation Street, and for women over a certain age it may be best to stick with subtle nods to the trend, like the black Karen Millen pencil skirt.

Or you can also opt for leopard print shoes that will breathe life into the most ordinary outfit. Clashing a couple of classic prints looks really fresh. Team the Oasis chain bag pictured with a Breton stripe top and jeans for an awesome look.

For those who couldn’t care less about the dodgy old ‘Rovers’ landlady then more is definitely more! Add a chunky faux fur leopard print coat to your winter wardrobe and it’ll be your cosy cover-up for years to come. River Island, AWear and Topshop reign at the moment for all things leopard print.
