Fashion trendspotting – a leopard never changes its spots

I can’t believe it – leopard print is back. Again. The favourite pattern of classy barmaids up and down the country (particularly those in Soapland) has returned to the catwalks this year and is already popping up in my favourite high street and online shops. Plus I’ve noticed that more and more celebrities are wearing leopard print items. Sometimes its just a subtle accessory; such as Holly Willoughby in these gorgeous kitty shoes or everyone’s favourite fashionista Sarah Jessica Parker in a very wearable leopard print scarf.

But sometimes the feline print is the main focus of the celeb’s outfit; the nation’s sweetheart Cheryl Cole looks super-cute in a prom dress and gorgeous actress Katie Holmes has never looked classier in this printed coat. Plus Rihanna’s looking fierce in a coloured leopard skirt, and here’s Jennifer Lopez wearing from A.L.C (possibly the scariest thing since double-denim) to promote her film Parker in January this year. Of course, the thigh-high Louboutins make the whole outfit much more high-fashion rather than barmaid, but is the big-cat print a little bit too scary to wear for everyday use?

Personally, I think it can be done and I will definitely be getting myself a cat-print scarf like SJP. I’ve also found some beautiful pieces of animal-print clothing from Lashes of London and I’ve gathered together my favourites to follow the leopard trend this season. This is my ultimate wish-list and some of these items are actually on sale already – I can’t help myself when faced with a bargain 😉 I especially love the neon pink dress and would certainly feel a very Rihanna-esque in it, but I think it’s subtle enough to wear for most occasions and all year round.
