A timeless fashion classic, animal print is back for autumn and it’s fiercer than ever, with bright hues, touchable textures and cosy knits here to liven up your new season wardrobe.

From dresses to outerwear, here are four chic ways to try the trend…


The transitional dress

A long-sleeved midi dress is this year’s must-have transitional piece.

Wear one now with trainers or heels and a long coat, then layer up as chillier weather arrives with a roll-neck top underneath and knee-high boots.

The statement shirt

Inject some colour into your work wardrobe with a tiger or leopard print top.

Team your brightly-hued blouse with this season’s wide-leg or split-hem trousers and your favourite black blazer.

The slouchy cardigan

Cosy up with a leopard print cardigan – but make sure it’s the long, slouchy kind rather than a neat, cropped knit.

Throw your catwalk-inspired cardi over jeans and a jumper in a tonal shade, or dress it up with a mini skirt (they’re back this season, FYI) and ankle boots.


The cool coat

Searching for a show-stopping winter coat? A leopard print faux fur or puffer jacket is the ideal investment piece.

Whether long or short, these coats in neutral hues go with almost everything, and you’ll be wearing them for years to come.
