Fashion: Loving Leo

Fashion-forward felines get their fix while the sun is in Leo

Joe Fresh Print Silk Shirt

As the sun moves into Leo in the astrological calendar, we’re taking more than life advice from this fashion-forward feline. Those who stalk trends like they’re the hunter and the next big thing the prey have long considered leopard print as the ultimate unexpected “neutral”.

This spotted print was first made popular when pinup Bettie Page prowled around wearing animal skins, but it didn’t appear on the couture stage until Christian Dior included two leopard-print dresses in his 1947 collection.

In Dior’s Little Book of Fashion he wrote, “To wear leopard you must have a kind of femininity which is little bit sophisticated.” Now a staple in the closet of any style editor worth their hide, the beauty of leopard print is that no matter what you wear it with, the outfit will always looks polished.

Joe Fresh Print Silk Shirt, $49.
