No longer a Jersey Shore twerk-in-your-bodycon-dress trend, this style is a bold statement with a hint of elegance. As much as I want to disagree with the 70s trend its sweeping in with - too many bad haircuts - it seems to house the leopard pretty well amongst its flared trousers, PVC skirts and exotic platform shoes.

70s suede and tassels have stormed catwalks from cowboy jackets to knee high boots. Look to Forever 21, Topshop and River Island for alternatives this month. Style your brown/black knee highs with skinny jeans, a printed crop top (dreaming of Alexander McQueen SS15) and a block print box jacket.
Leopard accessories will always compliment any outfit for any season but with this seasons 70s themes the bold print will highlight and modernise any outfit. Here are my favourite leopard print picks -
