Leopard Print Must Have From Esprit

Leopard print has become a wardrobe classic that never seems to date. This autumn, animal print is everywhere again, from bags and scarves that add a flash of print to your look, to dresses and coats that only need minimal styling. In my collection I currently have a scarf, ankle boots, heels and a gorgeous bag, so I'm ready to move on to my first item of leopard print clothing. So, number one on my autumn wish list is a leopard print blouse, a versatile piece to dress up my jeans outfits and wear under my khaki military jacket for an edgier look. I've looked at so many, but the front runner is this one from Esprit that I tried on in London recently:

Flowing Leopard Print Blouse £29

It's quite drapey and will look perfect under a little jacket or blazer, teamed with skinny jeans or leather trousers. And such a reasonable price! I have to admit that while I shopped at Esprit when I lived in London, it has fallen off my radar since moving to Dorset nearly five years ago. I'm glad that I was lured back in by the leopard print blouse, as I also found some other gems:

Moving on to zebra print, this chunky textured cardigan would be cosy on the school run until a proper coat is needed:

Zebra Cardigan in Textured Knit £55

And next on my list would be this sweater, which I would wear with a shirt underneath, teamed with jeans and sneakers:

Soft Sweatshirt with an All-Over Print £39

I'm also looking out for a cosy sweater dress to wear with tights and biker boots and love this one:

Fashion £45

The parka is a great transitional jacket and this one is such a great price for something that is stylish as well as  practical:

Two-in-One Winter Parka £129

And finishing with something fabulous - I love these over-the-knee boots for the boldest style statement:

Boots £139

So are you a fan of Esprit and do you have your eye on anything from the new collection? As always, I love to hear your comments.

Finishing with what I was wearing yesterday - unpacking from my holiday and generally feeling sorry for myself!
