Leopard Print Tights by Wolford


Of all the retro prints available in mainstream fashion, leopard print is the one that just isn't going anywhere. While it's much maligned by some, it's an ideal injection of rockabilly flair into any outfit. Especially in the case of these Leopard Print Tights by Wolford.

Made in the classic golden yellow and black, these are ideal for a modern take on fifties flair, allowing a hint of pinup style to be added to any outfit. Making a tricky print easy to wear, the tights definitely still pack some punch that will make a statement out of even the most demure outfit.

Leopard Bayswater Bag by Mulberry


Leopard print has by now reached near saturation as a retro print choice, but thanks to its lasting appeal across many decades it's going nowhere. While some leopard print items may end up looking more Bet Lynch than Bettie Page (no bad thing, in our opinion), there are plenty which retain that higher end classic look.

This Leopard version of the Bayswater Bag by Mulberry has an undeniable air of luxury about it, with use of a calf hair fabric and sparing gold-look hardware. Making it easier to wear leopard print with everything, the bag is oversized enough to make a big impression, without looking overworn like many dresses and coats can.

It's available in the UK from My Wardrobe, at Mulberry's usual high cost – this time £1650.

Retro Print Pollyanna Bag by Lulu Guinness


There are a handful of prints that, while still in fashion circulation regularly, retain something of their retro roots in almost every incarnation. Often the easiest way to inject patterns like nautical stripes or animal print into your wardrobe is with accessories, like this Pollyanna Clutch Bag from Lulu Guinness.

The simple clutch structure provides a perfect vehicle for the two bold designs, creating timeless pieces without over detailing. The higher end leopard print choice is made from quality leather, while the striped version is made from a light polyester fabric, taking the price into a more affordable range. Each bag is just sizeable enough to carry all, while retaining some dainty femininity.

Get the leopard print version and the striped option from My Wardrobe online, retailing at £425 and £175 respectively.
