THE LEOPARD LOOK IS DOMINATING THE CAT WALK (excuse the pun)

I have become obsessed with leopard print fashion lately.  I think adding a leopard print piece (synthetic of course!) to your outfit makes a strong, confident yet sleek statement.

What is drawing us fashionista’s to leopard print so much?

Aside from the obvious distinctive pattern of dark spots called rosettes which create a beautiful pattern against their light fur, here are some further interesting facts they may also draw you to embody the leopard in your closet…

  • The leopard is the most elusive and secretive of the large felines. They are extremely difficult to trace and locate in the wild.
  • Leopards are astoundingly strong. They are pound for pound the strongest of the big cats. They are able to climb trees, even when carrying heavy prey.
  • Leopards are renowned for their agility. They run up to 58km/h and can leap 6m horizontally and 3m vertically.
  • They are very strong swimmers.
  • Like our pet kitties, leopards will growl when angry and purr when content.

From scarves, hair accessories, sunnies, purses, shoes to jackets, the leopard print looks good on most fashion pieces, and here are some of my favourite Leopard looks right now…
