THE NEW SKIRT TO GO
WILD FOR

Try a fresh take on animal print with this sporty pencil skirt, with jacquard fabric and go-faster side stripe

I’ve dubbed 2018 ‘the Year of the Leopard’, given the phenomenal success of the print, which lends itself purr-fectly to almost anything it’s applied to and looks set to be a hit in 2019, too. From day-to-night dresses to cashmere cardigans and chiffon blouses – even cosy pyjamas – there isn’t a garment that isn’t thoroughly enhanced by a sprinkling of spots. There’s a timeless, suits-all quality to leopard print, and now it comes in a sporty new guise by way of this contemporary pencil skirt, which also features a go-faster stripe detail. Pair with a cosy teddy-bear coat and T-shirt to give your casual wardrobe a fresh lease of life or dress up for the office with a black polo neck and long boots.
