All the Leopard-Printed Pieces You Could Wish for in One Glorious Gallery

The street-style set has really got their claws into this.

Knowing how to wear leopard print comes down to this one simple, unwritten rule: Treat it like any black item in your wardrobe. Yes, this might seem counterintuitive, but adding a little leopard to any outfit upgrades and harmonises a look. True, leopard print has often walked the line between flashy and luxurious, but it's been proven time and again that fashion girls can't resist it. And despite its ubiquity, leopard prints popularity began with one designer and his muse—more specifically, Christian Dior and Mitzah Bricard. Bricard was fascinated by leopard print, and as a result, during the '50s, Dior created a range of his accessories featuring the design, elevating leopard to be the must-have print of the moment.

Style Notes: As we pointed out earlier, you need to treat leopard print as if it were another neutral colour in your wardrobe. This means you can definitely wear it with other prints—our favourites are stripes and checks.
Style Notes: Wearing a tiny leopard-print bag is still a great way to bring out the rest of your outfit.
Style Notes: Everyone we know wants a leopard print slip skirt right now. Wear it simply, with a white top of any variety and some neutral sandals or boots.
Style Notes: While we'd normally say stick to the classic colours, there's something about this bold red Ganni leopard print that's so out-there, you can't help but appreciate it. 
Style Notes: There's the worry that you'll come off a bit Bet Lynch, but you need to embrace that. Take a style tip from Giovanna Engelbert, and accessorise your outfit with gold jewellery. 
Style Notes: It's not a combination we could have predicted, but thanks to the neutral tones found in each, you can mix and match different animal prints together quite easily.
Style Notes: Want a quick way to make anything you own that's plain look so much jazzier? Leopard shoes, friend.
Style Notes: For a no-holds-barred approach we'd recommend revisiting that '80s look and trying out leopard-print trousers with red leather boots. 
Style Notes: Leopard print makes a classic white tee and blue jeans sing.
