Fashion designer Jenna Lyons once described leopard print as a neutral.
I’m inclined to agree, but then I do also think of silver, gold and even cerise as universal colours that pretty much go with anything and everything.
Not everyone thinks this: a 2015 eBay survey of fashion no-nos revealed that a quarter of women believe that too much animal print is the worst fashion mistake a woman can make (even worse, apparently, than visible bra straps and eveningwear during the day). Embrace the animal print, I say.
Since when did we care so much about what other people think? I might even push the boat right out today and wear sequins to Sainsbury’s too. Come on, folks – let’s rebel 😆
