Let’s make an effort…
I’m the first one to admit I’m quite a lazy dresser, as in ‘throw something on and forget about it’, but every now and then I do make an effort. And then I look like this.
Err… Effort? Isn’t this just another version of my ‘winter uniform’ of a cashmere sweater and jeans / trousers, you ask?
Well, yes. And no. It’s all in the details, love, look closer.
In my passion for anything matchy-matchy, I went all wild woman with my leopard print sunnies and belt. And ankle boots, too.
OK, the ankle boots… Maybe it’s a different animal. A leopard print cow? A cow masquerading as a leopard? A leopard-cow with an identity crisis? Oh well, I’m not one to judge, and long as it goes with the overall colour scheme…
Anyway, leopard print, in brown tones at least, is best enjoyed in small doses. If you have a face that looks as if it has never seen the sun, that is. Olive-skinned girls can wear leopard print head to toe, of course, but if you’re as pasty-faced as I am, you’d better wrap some colour around your neck. Besides, I learned from my very stylish mother that understated elegance is the way to go, and when it comes to leopard print, less is more.

How do you wear leopard print? Or leopard-cow print? Whatever?
