How To Style Leopard Print For Every Body Shape

I have been obsessed with leopard print for many years and I’’m delighted that its hitting the high street, stores and little boutiques hard this coming season. What was once thought of as an Autumn or Winter print is being taken so seriously for summer. Along with summer sequins (cry's with happiness) but thats for another styling article altogether!

Leopard print is one of the biggest trends this season and it’s a classic print that anyone can pull off. Although it has to be worn with caution or you might end up looking like Pat Butcher. This tricky print is easy to wear when you know how and that’s all part of my job as a stylist is to help others look their best on and off of camera. So today I will share my tip tips for wearing leopard print for each and every one of you out there.

Whatever the occasion you all can add this print into your lives and your wardrobe. I'm totally obsessed with Never Fully Dressed right now and this Chester shirt I have worn so many times in different ways. I've worn it over a slip dress, with tailored trousers and jeans as featured here.

I wear this with ease around the house when working or enjoying a simple cup of coffee with friends. It's luscious fabric adds a touch of class to any outfit or occasion! As perma-tanned shopping channel presenter named Julian says in Bridget Jones "It's what I call an all-arounder--the sort of thing one can wear with anything to any occasion!"

How To Style Leopard Print For Every Body Shape

  1. Top tip no one is to make sure you know what body shape you are. If your not familiar with my blog and want to dive into finding out the answers then I will link all the practical body shape blog posts at the bottom of this article.
  2. Once you have determined your shape then we can begin with the most essential rule. Balance is key to any look. If your wearing a large proportion of this print keep it to one area. So if you have picked up a lovely slinky slip dress don’t be tempted to add matching heels. Keep a balance.
  3. Rhubarbs you can get away with bias cut outfits, maxis, leopard accessories and pretty much anything but not cinched in waist belts in this pattern. Adding emphasis around the larger part of your body needs to be your main rule
  4. Hourglass girls grab those leopard waist belts and rejoice over your curvy assets. Cropped leopard print jackets and shirts tied at the front will look just amazing. Bias cut dresses will look inane as long as the fabric isn’t clingy around the bottom or thighs. 
  5. Pears you will love the maxi dresses coming out soon and I love the one featured from Sass & Edge in my video. This style will grab hold of the tiniest part of your frame and cover the legs elongating your frame perfectly.
  6. Apples and top heavy ladies make sure you are careful and avoid adding too much print on your top half. Its best to wear leopard print shirts that are slightly longer and left open worn with a longer necklace to draw the eye downwards to lengthen and slim the torso. 
  7. Now if you feel a little self conscious about adding Leopard print into your wardrobe just add a pop of leopard within your other accessories like the heels, twilly scarfs around bags, earrings and even on your nails.
