Animal Instinct – How to wear Leopard print.

The animals are loose. They’re running rampant on the street. Stomping down the pavement, frolicking on the beach, tearing through boardrooms, classrooms, cafes and bars. From runway to lane way you’ll find a veritable smorgasbord of animal inspired prints, as ladies all over the world explore their wild side.

Our favourite of all? The lust-worthy leopard print.

Whoever said a leopard can’t change it’s spots clearly hadn’t met a determined lady with a well stocked wardrobe. Never has one print been able to seamlessly take us from virgin to vixen. From boardroom to bar, or cafe to club. All you need to do is pair your leopard print with the right friends – sandals or booties for day time, and killer heels in the evening. Or if you’re like us, let your shoes do the talking, and wear leopard print on your feet – get the look with our Anna leopard and wooden heels. We love them teamed with ripped boyfriend jeans.


So with myriad ways to wear this trend, where does one begin? Here’s the lowdown on our favourite ways to wear this look. Claws away babes, there’s plenty of leopard loving to go around.

When you’re feeling cute and girly opt for a leopard print skirt, in an A-line, above the knee cut. Team it with a bright pop of colour on top, and our Tara gladiator sandal down below. Reverse the look with an animal print blouse and on trend pleated skirt.  Dressed and ready? Treat yourself to some fresh peonies from the market. Go on, you deserve them.


Thinking Sunday brunch with the girls?

Get shorty in a pair of statement leg-barers and pair them with a white shirt for a crisp, clean look. Pop on our Serra sandals to complete the look. Dress it up with this seasons must have strappy heel.


For work, a sheer leopard print shirt teamed with black skinnies is a fail-proof look. Or turn it upside down and match statement pants with an easy white tee and black blazer. And of course some cute shoes that you can stomp around in all day – we think our Akaysha wooden wedge-heels will do just the trick.

“I have no idea where I’ll end up today.” For you indecisive folk, here’s your new mantra: Animal goes well with denim. Repeat.

You literally can’t go wrong with this combo. Short, baggy, tight, ripped – pop on our feline inspired pumps (Anna), grab a catty clutch, and you’re good to go.


The sun’s down and it’s time to play. Vamp it up in a mid-length pencil skirt, or team an oversized jumper with leather shorts. Mesh booties like these will have you turning heads for all the right reasons. If you dare, a figure hugging midi length dress will leave jaws dropping wherever you go. Pair with a pair of leg elongating pumps like these.
