Leopard print is the new black! I realised this when I was shopping online a couple of weeks ago and found myself not opting for the little black dress like I usually would (despite knowing I already have 100 in my wardrobe), but instead adding this leopard print number to my basket instead.
2018 has seen a huge shift in my attitude towards dressing at work. A few years ago, I would never have bought such a daring print for work, out of fear people of what people would think. Fast forward a few years, and I have never felt more me and more confident in all the years I’ve worked in the City!

Thanks to Kat Slater (the legend that she is haha), leopard print has gained a stereotype over the years of sometimes looking a bit trashy and dated, but despite this it’s shown up time and time again on the catwalks and lets be honest, we just can’t resist it can we?
It’s how we style it that is key, especially when worn to work. I use the same rule with all of my workwear dresses – if my arms, legs and chest are all on show, it’s a no go!
What I loved about this particular dress was the long sleeves which balances out the length.Throw over a black blazer and you’re good to go!
I’ve rounded up 13 of my favourite leopard print pieces for the office below. I’d love to hear your thoughts on wearing this print to work, let me know in the comments below!
