Leopard-print gets a bad rap. Long favoured by cougars and WAGs, on paper it’s inevitably associated with all things OTT.
But in real-life, the opposite is true. Leopard-print is actually the ultimate neutral - at once blending in and infusing everything around it with subtle high-fashion zing.
Take these sandals. In dark yellow snakeskin, black stamped patent leather and leopard-print hair, they could be too much. But in fact they’re just right - and they’ll look as brilliant under tailored office shorts as they will under beachy cut-offs.
At $150, consider them the perfect outfit-maker your wardrobe needs now.
Could you wear this shoe? How would you do it?
