Style Inspiration: For the Love of Leopard Print
Belgrave Crescent | Saint-Tropez Zip in Leopard

Animal print has been a part of fashion and décor for many years: well-travelled, worldly and exotic, it was a symbol of wealth and status. Fabrics with patterns and colours imitating the coats of animals were made fashionable as early as the eighteenth century, and it is thought that animal print became popular in the United States in the late 1960’s, during the Bohemian movement.

We here at This Is Glamorous have long adored the pattern, and prefer to mix it with gold and white or pale pinks both in the closet and at home. The pattern also works surprisingly well with florals such as chintz. Here are a few of our favourite examples of how to use the pattern, whether in strappy sandals or a long coat, a zip pouch for travels or on armchairs, ottomans, or chic, chic wallpaper . . .
