A Leopard Print Lookbook

It’s absolutely no secret to anyone that the world is currently in the midst of a leopard print obsession. Love it or hate it (I can’t even decide how I feel) it’s EVERYWHERE, and I couldn’t help but wish I  could pull it off. Though not the biggest leopard lover when it comes to clothes, I admittedly have been eyeing up faux fur leopard print jackets for quite some time.

Faux fur jackets tend not to suit me, I’m tiny (hello to my 5″2 sisters out there),  I’m fairly slim and have long hair so anything slightly thick and fluffy makes me literally look like I’m drowning – I’ve always had this problem with coats. After recently trying on a similar jacket in River Island that looked more awful on me than you could possibly imagine, I came to terms with the fact I’d have to say farewell to my faux fur dreams this winter – or so I thought.

My weekly TK Maxx browse never really ends well for my bank account and this weeks trip certainly did it no favours. My wardrobe however, is loving it. I stumbled across this jacket and laughed as I tried it on, saying ‘these never look good on me’, other people’s opinions aside, it didn’t look THAT terrible. So that brings us to today, where I attempted to style it and create a very short lookbook post. After wearing this coat with chelsea boots, I figured I much prefer it with vans. I think dressing it up makes it look slightly overkill and that vans/trainers are much more laid back.

Do you love or hate this leopard print thing going on at the moment?
