There was a time when I hated any sort of animal print with a passion. All it conjured up in my mind was tacky images of Bet Lynch behind the bar of the Rovers Return, resplendent in beehive and leopard print, closely followed by another corrie legend, Liz MacDonald, another classy, brassy looker.
But those animal print hating days seem a long time ago now. These days I love any sort of animal print or skin. from leopard and cheetah, to zebra prints and even a little bit of snake. This has become the chicest of prints, whether you wear it in your clothing, or just keep it for shoes and accessories. Celebrities like Kate Moss and Sienna Miller are all partial to a touch of animal in their wardrobe, whilst Jessie J has shown a cheetah print dress can actually be surprising classy. I love the elegant Blink court shoe, with the black-capped toe and faux leopard print, which I think would be the perfect complement to a little black dress, whilst the Clarks Diva Dolly now have a £10 reduction, making them a classic bargain.
