#vcukhowtowear | Leopard print

Vouchercodes how to wear leopardprint

Three outfits in one today, lucky you lot! Kudos points if you'd spotted the theme before you read the post title - today I've teamed up with VoucherCodes to see if it is truly possible to buy 3 leopard-print outfits for £80.

What do you think guys? I must admit I sigh a great deal of relief when I heard my chosen trend would be leopard print, as let's be honest, you can't get anyone more obsessed about this look than me. We all like a bargain, that has to be said, so with a bit of savvy shopping, a gift or two, and some cheeky lending, I just about got there!

Topshop dress (£22.50 including discount), Fuse Fashion jumper (£17.50 in their sale) 
and black Kurt Geiger sandals (£0 - gift card) = £40

I may have started off with the most experience outfit, but making use of a gift card from Kurt Geiger, that definitely counts as no pennies spent on footwear throughout, right? My fluffy cardigan from Fuse Fashion always attracts at least a dozen strokes in my office each day. It's the same material as those black ones lurking all over the high street, but in leopard print, it adds something a bit more unusual. And I'm not even going to mention that dress, because the tulle speaks for itself. Sigh.

Peacocks dress (£16) and black Kurt Geiger sandals (£0 - gift card) = £16

You might not have thought tartan and leopard print could go well together on a two-piece, never mind blurred together in one frock. However! With the neon coral detailing and the easy shift cut, I really love this dress from Peacocks. It's perfect for work and play, and it's like the typical tartan swing dresses that me and every other blogger out there has in their wardrobe - guilty!

New Look cami top (£13), Primark skinny jeans (£10)
and black sandals from Kurt Geiger (£0 - gift card) = £23


Last, but by no means least, my eyes were drawn to this neon cami in New Look and at just £13 I knew it would have to be mine. I love how bright and in your face it is - the perfect uniform to a gig or just a laid back day. Along with a pair of easy skinny black jeans (always a reliable fall back), I think the simplicity of this just about pips the tulle to be my favourite of the three.

Hopefully I've demonstrated how it doesn't need to be at all Pat Butcher or cheap looking, my top tip would definitely be to find pieces which don't scream conventional print. Whether it's a neon twist, mixing with other prints or an unusual fabric, it's an easy trend to wear if you look hard enough.

Though two looks were are LOT cheaper than the first, I still spent a grand total of £79, just £1 under budget - which proves shopping for a new wardrobe on a budget is definitely possible!

Shop the looks...

  12. I nearly bought that New Look cami the other day but talked myself out of it as I have quite a bit of leopard print in my wardrobe already. Wish I had bought it now! x
