Leopard print. You either love it or you loathe it. At The Urban List, we’re firmly in the ‘wear it from head to toe and haters be damned’ camp. Jacket, dress, skirt, bag, shoes—our wardrobes are full of feline threads, what of it?
Listers, if you’re a little wary of coming off more Drescher than Delevigne, we’ve prowled the high streets to bring you our pick of Urban-List-approved leopard print. So test the wildlife waters with 8 of the Best Leopard Print Accessories and remember, it’s a neutral.
#1 The Cheater
So, we’ve kind of cheated with this one, as it’s technically cheetah print. But who you gonna tell when it looks this darn good? The perfect sassy satchel to offset a black suit and hint at your inner vixen.
#2 The Classy Clutch
No, we don’t know what a popoche* is either. But we do know that we love Jerome Dreyfuss, we love leopard print, we love an outsized clutch, and we regularly shop at bassike. So coming across this bag on sale felt like sweet serendipity. (*French for bag).
#3 The Pimped Up Pump
We’ve had our eyes on these killer kicks for quite a while now. And we’ve been eating beans on toast almost long enough to pay off our layby.
#4 The More Sensible One
Ok, so this one’s more of an everyday shoe. But that doesn't mean it isn’t hella sexy. The chunky heel is also super practical for chasing down your prey.
#5 The Scarf-Blanket Slashie
Every girl needs a scarf that does double duty as a blanket, sarong, table cloth, beach towel... Bonus points if she’s chic enough to pick one in luxurious leopard. This gorgeous McQueen multi-tasker will do quite nicely. Quite nicely indeed.
Alexander McQueen ‘Leopard Big Skull Scarf’, $770, at Cult Status and online
#6 Boot Scootin’
They're on the higher end of the affordability scale, but we just know we’d thrash these Saint Laurent pony ankle boots, in an oh-so-loving way, of course. Wear. With. Everything. Because, neutral.
Saint Laurent ‘Low Boots Pony Linx’, $1046.49, at Cult Status (WA) and online
#7 Lace of Hearts
We’re a little bit in love with these casual lace-ups from Sambag. We’re pairing ours with a cropped pant and jaunty step.
‘Billie Leopard Print Pony’, $134.40, Sambag stores and online
#8 The Classic
These cute-as pony espadrilles are giving us all the summer feels.
‘Piper Pony Espadrille’, $180, at Sambag stores and online
