Okay, so I think this may the final hurrah for my leopard coat this year.
It was needed last weekend because it felt like winter again for a few days (in fact we had torrential hailstones the same day), but it did give me the chance to pair it with baby blue which I’ve been wanting to do all winter.
I think a great way to tone down the potential “tartiness” of a large block of leopard print is to go for the masculine chic look – I went with a blue gingham shirt, my husband’s sweater, boyfriend jeans and black patent brogues. Take away the coat and it’s all very mannish (that’s the way I like it), but then it’s feminised to some extent with the pop of red in the bag and my lipstick.
I know a few bloggers who do the masculine chic look really well (Daniella I’m looking at you!) so I think their style has rubbed off on me a little.
What about you – do you embrace the man in you at all, or do you like touches of it in, say, boyfriend jeans or a good brogue? Do let me know in the comments!
