Love Leopard Print - It's a jungle out there!

I remember leopard print making a big revival, about six years ago, when my friends and I went crazy for it. 5pm on a Friday afternoon at the office would finally arrive, and after a speedy commute home, demolition of our bedrooms, in our race to get ready, a quick "Hi" and "Bye" to our poor parents (who we would wake up when we rolled in at 4am) we were off!

We hit the bars in full force. A very loud, excitable gaggle of LBD's, high heels, pinot grigio blush and leopard print! The animal print always made an appearance, whether it be in the form of a clutch bag, shoes, a scarf or a dress, (sometimes all of these together NOT TO BE ADVISED!) we couldn't get enough of the fashionable print.

I still love to wear leopard print to liven up an otherwise plain outfit, and it's remained a firm favourite among celebrities and on the catwalks and high street.

I love the high quality of the Trasparenze Legend Denim Leopard Print Leggings (below left) and the rock chick design of these gorgeous denim leggings. Team your animal print leggings with heels or flats to suit all occasions.
