What’s this on the horizon? A host of leopard print dresses that actually look sophisticated? Believe it, baby. As the spring collections trickle into the shops, it’s becoming apparent that leopard print, and animal print in general, might just be the trans-seasonal print option we’ve all been searching for. When florals look too summery, stripes look too severe and one more boring block colour will tip us over the edge, leopard comes galloping to the rescue. The black markings mean each dress works as well with black tights as with a nude leg, and will also tone nicely with those black boots you’ve been glued to all winter. Easy, tiger.
