Fashion trends are everchanging and come and go faster than a British heatwave. But among all the others that are sure to be short lived, there’s one craze that will always remain a constant.
Yes, we’re of course talking about leopard print!
The LBD or the perfect pair of jeans spring to mind when we think of a wardrobe staple, but leopard print, much like a classic red lip, has been like the secret style weapon to amp up any outfit for quite some time now and though its popularity may tend to dip in and out from season to season, it’s undoubtedly a timeless classic that never truly goes out of style.
Jo Weldon, author of ‘Fierce: The History of Leopard Print’ believes that the unique pattern remains popular because “it has accumulated meanings … Someone can wear it and feel as if they are standing out or blending in, they can feel outrageous or casual. They can feel like it makes them look more mature, they can feel like it makes them feel more youthful.”
What once adorned the castles of Kings and Queens as a symbol of wealth, power and sophistication, evolved into a feminine fashion statement that signifies confidence and nonconformity, dating back to the 1920’s where leopard fur coats were in high demand.
Through the decades it’s had many more than nine lives, for example the 1950’s saw leopard print become popular in mass-produced lingerie and swimwear collections, contributing to the pattern’s association with female sexuality. It then gave way to androgyny and rebellion in the 70’s as the print was favoured by none other than David Bowie. And would we really (really) want anything to do with leopard print if it weren’t for Scary Spice’s infamous jumpsuits in the 90’s?
