How To Wear Leopard Print This Season Using Nothing But Supermarket Fashion


Animal prints in fashion have been trending for decades. But nothing has been quite so ubiquitous as leopard print. Found on the catwalk almost every season, the bold and primal pattern is once again taking over this autumn. But while you could spend an absolute fortune on designer wears, supermarkets are offering a much more affordable solution. So here's how to wear leopard print this season on a purse-friendlier budget.

But wait, hold up, I know what you're thinking. Leopard print is quite out there, right? The trend probably isn't everyone's cup of tea. Well, actually, there are plenty of subtle ways to incorporate it into your look. Just take a look back at the AW18 catwalks, which totally showed a new wave of the trend. Tom Ford exhibited leopard print suits made in shades of neon green and fiery red, however, designers like Carolina Herrera took things down a more monochromatic route. You see, there’s something for everyone.

If you need a bit of celeb inspiration, a quick search on Google and you’ll be spoilt for ideas. Kendall Jenner, Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez, and Taylor Swift are all fans of the trend.

With that in mind, here's a few cheap as chips options from the UK's top supermarkets that'll allow you to take your love of leopard print to the next level.

1A Fluffy Knit

Pink Leopard Jumper


This season, it's all about pushing the boat out colour-wise. And Asda's hot pink jumper is just the way to do it. The knit doesn't appear to be available online yet but keep your eyes peeled for a release soon.

2A Traditional Coat

Leopard Coat


No winter is complete without a gorgeous faux fur coat. This cosy leopard print number will go with any outfit and will last for years to come. Not bad for something under £50. Unfortunately, you can no longer buy Tesco's clothing range online, but you can still find everything in store.

3A Year-Round Dress

Green Leopard Print Dress


This forest green dress comes with an alternating leopard print and a spliced hem, making it an item that can be worn all year round. Stick a pair of tights on come winter then banish them as soon as the first sign of sun appears.

4A Subtle Accessory

Leopard And Burgundy Bag


Supermarkets even have something for those who are a little apprehensive when it comes to animal print. Only half of this bag is covered in the pattern, giving a nice subtle nod to the trend. (Unfortunately, it's not available online just yet, but will be soon.)

5A Silky Blouse

Animal Print Satin Blouse


Supermarkets are killing it in the workwear department. Just like many of the other leopard print pieces, this red satin shirt can be buttoned up for the office and loosened for a night out.

6A Maxi Skirt

Leopard Print Pleated Skirt


Throw this pleated skirt on with a simple black knit and you have an outfit that'll take you straight through the next few months. Don't forget a pair of chic ankle boots to really kick things up a notch. Again, you can't buy Tesco fashion online anymore, but you can pick this number up in store.

7A Standard T-Shirt

Cream Leopard Print Top


Everyone needs a leopard print tee in their lives. This one's incredibly lightweight and will work for both the office and drinks at your local pub. Versatility is so underrated.

8A Pair Of Flats

Black Leopard Print Pointed Shoes


Comfortable shoes? Tick. Office-appropriate? Tick. Bang on trend? Tick. If you can't tell, these affordable ballet flats tick all the boxes.

9A Stand-Out Swimsuit

Black Leopard Print Swimsuit


The weather may be turning but that doesn't mean you can't book a quick winter getaway somewhere nice and sunny. And what better way to show off your trip on Instagram than with this toned down leopard swimsuit?

Be bold. Or don't. Whether you go for the in your face look or a more subtle vibe, leopard print really is a fashion-lover's best friend.
