Leopard into Autumn

Thin, fat, short, or tall: remember, leopard print is your friend. You just have to know how to incorporate it wisely.

I mostly adhere to the 'big is best' philosophy of accessorising and unsurprisingly, this doesn't end with print. Being 5ft 2.5" (all you shorties will know how important that half inch, that sounds ALOT like a line from a 90s rap song...), I like to think that a bit of print goes a long way in keeping me from getting lost in a crowd.

Leopard print is perfect to ease you into being that little bit bolder if that is, you're a print-virgin. Totally versatile, use against bright pieces in S/S or to make A/W outfits that bit more exciting. Here's a few examples (all from the loveliness that is Pinterest)  to give you some ideas this Autumn...


Shoes: Flats are perfect if you've got a big night out that's sure to last until the wee hours and don't want to be crippled by a pair of heels. The splash of print keeps the outfit smart and on trend:
Print heels are perfect with an outfit that's otherwise block coloured or monochrome:

Accessorise: Don't think that because you've got a loud print on that you cant accessorise, big. Same goes for teaming it with bight colours  - looks a treat:

Neck: If I have one piece of advice, it's go out a buy a leopard print scarf. Right now. You can throw it on with almost anything and can style up otherwise seemingly 'boring' outfits:

Eyes: Whether you need them for sun, reading or wondering if 'that blur over there in the distance' is your husband, leopard frames are ruddy awesome:

Warmth: Print coats and jackets aren't just for Steven Tyler, oh no. Slim fitted blazers like this one, when teamed with casual daywear look effortlessly cool. Note the layered necklaces to give an edge:

Storage: Statement bags are no new thing, the one below makes the chic work wardrobe that bit more fun:

Shirts/blouses: wear under a jumper with a statement necklace or just with skinny jeans for a casual look that you can take from day to night, with just the swipe of a bright lippy:
