10 Ways To Wear Leopard Print This Autumn

Animal Leopard Print Midi Skirt
Yes, still.  There truly is no end to the love I feel for leopard print this season - and going by the responses to recent animal print outfits here on the blog, I'm assuming you're also a hardcore fan?!  The beauty of this trend is that instead of just one style/fit of clothing, it's all about a print.  Which means we have endless opportunities to play around with outfits until we develop headaches just from looking at leopard print.  The options are limitless, although that doesn't mean we can't put tother a basic framework of ideas, ready for flinging on before a leafy walk in the park, or marshmallow-toasting session with loved ones this Autumn...

Unsurprisingly, this is my fave way to wear the print.  Having indulged in a leopard-print haul last month, I started with a mini-version of this skirt while the weather was still warm, and moved into this midi length now that the temperature is dropping.  Plus, a midi length also leaves you open to plenty of footwear options as it gets colder and colder...


Ooh, what a dream!  This has to be the most appreciated and lust worthy way in which the print can be worn.  Oh, and not to mention the sexiest!  I've got a maxi-length, leopard print dress coming to the blog soon, which reminds me of a couple of points.  Firstly, you can break up the busy print with a thick tan belt if it feels too much, and secondly opt for riding boots during the day and stilettos at night to take the style throughout the entire length of the day!

Mmm, there's always plenty of animal print scarves around come this time of year.  But now we have an even greater incentive to add one or two to our ever-growing collections of cold-weather woollies!  Although, if that all sounds a little too snug for you, opt for a thin silk leopard-print scarf wrapped around your neck, waist or perhaps even the brim of your hat.

F O O T W E A R 

If all of the above sounds like a bit too much for you, you may prefer to look in the direction of accessories - starting with footwear.  There's no going wrong with a chic pair of leopard-print ankle boots, and don't even get me started on the dreamy range of leopard-print stilettos around right now!


This can be a bit hit and miss.  Play it right and you'll look as though you've just stepped off the Dolce & Gabbana runway.  Play it wrong and you could potentially risk being mistaken for Petunia from Futurama...

Oof, not one for the shy.  I'm yet to try this style myself, but I'll confess to being seriously tempted after an influx of the style has spread across Instagram over recent weeks!


I can remember falling in love with a leopard print coat from Karen Millen about a decade ago and yet I still haven't added one to my wardrobe.  This is one area seriously worth investing in, because even when the trend passes, the print will still remain a fashion favourite.  It's a classic.

J E W E L L E R Y 

If you've been shaking your head throughout this post, then jewellery just may be the best direction to look in.  Silk cuffs, heavy pendants, brooches, sheer socks.  A happy compromise - and the list is endless!


Oh yes, a personal favourite of mine.  Just when you thought animal print couldn't be any sexier, along comes the realm of lingerie and even more leopard-print beauties hitting the New In sections online.  Ooh...

E V E R Y W H E R E ! 

You can't decide?  Choose everywhere!  This season's fashion weeks saw plenty of matchy-matchy and/or clashing prints hitting both the runways and streets afterwards alike.  It's an undeniably bold approach to the trend and one that is guaranteed to turn heads - in the very best of ways.  Bonus point if you can squeeze in some form of denim into the look too; nothing looks quite so stylish as a leopard and denim combo

  38. I love your look Gabrielle, warm colours, always a stunner! I love leopard print but don't think it suites me, so I am more likely to stick to stripes, chevron, polka dots etc. I love the pendents and sun bracelet, too cute : ) xo


  39. I adore this look, so effortlessly chic (as you always are!). I'm on the hunt for a good leopard midi, although I'm sooo super picky when it comes to leopard print haha!

  40. Stunning, stunning and stunning! Love this look on you - absolutely beautiful and super-sophisticated! Hope you're having a fab week gorgeous!

  41. Although animal print in general seems to be huge right now, leopard print is still the only one I’m on board with, but I am thoroughly on board! I picked up a leopard print denim mini skirt from Topshop recently and absolutely love it, and I wore a leopard midi skirt all through summer as well. It’s super versatile and as long as it’s the right colour palette, it basically works as a neutral for me and seems to go with everything!

  42. Leopard print is so fun. I have always been a fan. I use to have a faux fur leopard print coat I loved it. This skirt is gorgeous. I was watching a vlog the other day and the vlogger was wearing a leopard print jumpsuit and it was so cool.

  43. This is such a cute outfit! I love the sweater you paired with the skirt

  44. My dear Gabriele, you definitely know how to wear leopard print this fall! This outfit is perfect and I love your skirt and your boots! Wishing you a great weekend! xoxo

  45. My favourite way is in scarves, coats, or jeans! Love this look with the skirt!

  46. I love the way you've paired this gorgeous skirt with the different tan shades Gabrielle - stunning styling! I often find the animal print tan shade washes me out and as a English rose yourself I love how the warm tone of the boots can alter this!

  47. Love your style so much. You look awesome with this leopard print dress.

  48. You wear print beautifully! I love the boots you are wearing!
