Whether you’re looking for a head-to-toe look, or a peep-through layer to nod to this autumn’s hottest animal print trend – we have the best edit this season and it’s not all about leopard…

Stay neutral in print

It may sound ridiculous to call animal print a ‘neutral’ but in a fashion-sense it is. It can be one of the most versatile prints in your wardrobe – paired with jeans at the weekend, or a blazer and heels on a night out. It’s the ultimate style chameleon. Try our Juliet Cleo Print top as the perfect dress up/down print investment this season.

Leopard print for beginners

If it’s your first foray onto the wild side, dip your toe in the print pond with accessories. They’re a great way of road-testing a trend before committing to a full outfit. From belts to heels, or one of our bestselling Pom Amsterdam print scarves – choose from a bold, graphic leopard print to a chic, grey zebra print with metallic thread fringe.

Layer up your leopard print

Layering is at the heart of the Scandi Style aesthetic. Another way of nodding to the animal print trend without going full ‘Bet Lynch’ is to look for prints in muted, pastel tones and layer them under your knitwear. Rosemunde tick both boxes this season with their lace-trimmed leopard Billie strap top in rose gold, olive, beige and grey. The flattering, feminine v-neck cami would look beautiful peeping out at the neckline of a cardigan, or under a blazer come spring.

Own it in hot pink leopard print

With any trend, it’s not about slavishly follow the status quo – find a way to wear animal print that works with your personal style and skin tone. From monochrome snow leopard to bold colourways like Baum Und Pferdgarten’s pink and red leopard print co-ord set.

Timeless styling with leopard print classics

If you’re looking to keep your animal print classic, team it with lots of simple styling in camels, navys and whites. It can look effortlessly chic. The way to stop animal print looking trashy is to keep it demure, well-tailored and in quality fabrics. The Kianna Cleo print wrap dress from MBYM is the perfect example – a midi, long-sleeved classic wrap dress in a flattering, warm blush leopard print. The small pattern is flattering on curves and the dress can be worn with heels for party season or layered up with an oversized knit and boots for a weekend pub lunch.

Go bolder with animal prints

Our edit of animal prints are not limited to leopard – we’ve got the birds and the bees covered too with our graphic feather print blouse from Vilagallo and our bee motif scarves from Pom Amsterdam. Four-legged friend fans will fall in love with our statement ‘Poggy Dog’ jacket, also from Vilagallo (pictured). The rather apt ‘Houndstooth’ print has been given a quirky edge with a metallic embroidered dog sleeve, beneath the tassel fringe.

    Love some animal print but only with a backdrop of plain colours. All black with leopard shoes, or a scarf. I cannot be doing with lots of patterns all in the same outfit ?

    Thank you Nicola, both are brilliant for this season.

    Hi Lisa, the lovely thing about animal print is you can add a touch into an outfit or go head to toe, whatever you are most comfortable with!
