Yes, you can wear leopard print …. grrrr!
Leopard print prowled the catwalk again this season and is no longer a fashion faux-pas once you’ve turned 50.
Here’s how to wear your wild side in style – and avoid turning yourself into an endangered species that, frankly, no one would want to save.
Only wear one leopard print item at a time: more than that, and you risk looking like you’re trying to mate with yourself.
The modern way to wear animal print is to play down accessories: team with neutral colours and soft outlines for daytime, or, for evening, a classic black heel and clutch bag. Bear in mind that any accessory that is vinyl, thigh-high or fringed is strictly ‘ageing rock star’ and should be avoided at all costs.
Animal print, red lipstick and grey hair is a gorgeous look – keep it on-trend and elegant by making sure the rest of your make up is ultra low key.
Keep it classy and don’t show any cleavage, or leg above the knee.
Wear where appropriate: lunch with friends or a trip to the theatre? It’s the perfect look. Appointment with your gynaecologist? Probably not.
Nothing says ‘look at me, I’m a confident, predatory woman’ like animal print. Wear with attitude – and enjoy it!
Do you have a love affair with leopard? Is it a bit too ‘barmaid’ for your tastes? Or would you simply never dare wear it? Let us know!!
