The beauty of this jacket is the way it can be worn to fit wears purpose, easy to throw over the shoulders for a more editorial look, yet low key enough to pair with jeans and ankle boots for casual days as Emma shows. Our look adds interest in the subtleties, with delicately patterned nails and a leopard print bag to inject personality to a simplistic palette.

Speaking of the bag, this little H & M Leopard Print Beauty is just £7.99, yet emits a more expensive feel with it’s hairsheep-like texture (in an etheically pleasing faux-animal material). Simplistic square structure allows space to throw in your basics, secured with a top sealing zip and metal clasp longline strap. Longer length bags of this size work best for nifty trips out or adhering a work-to-bar schedule where getting the chance to change may prove non-existant. As the print is only on the front this style works well for incorperating into a print-clashing look to suit bold dressers, yet can adequately adorn the shoulder of a casual/cool ensemble as depicted in our editoral shown.
