The Ultimate Accessory - Leopard Print Scarf

Leopard print scarves are a timeless investment and a wardrobe essential - you can wear them throughout the seasons and they can transform a casual outfit in seconds. There are endless options - pair them with neutrals for a chic and stylish look or clash with other patterns including stripes, spots or camouflage to create an edgier outfit.

I've got a lovely lightweight leopard scarf so I wasn't planning on buying another, but Mr DF bought me the cashmere shawl version from Hush for Christmas (unprompted!) and it has to be the ultimate in leopard print scarves - super soft, cosy, warm and big without being bulky. And it's still in stock, but this keeps changing, so if you like it be quick:

Hush Cashmere Leopard Shawl


It really does make an outfit feel special, I seem to be wearing it all the time, this was yesterday:

Leopard Shawl: Hush AW14
Jumper - Maison Scotch at Yard AW11
Cargo Trousers - Hush AW14
Boots - Office AW12
 

I've had a quick look at what else is out there and even though this would be totally out of the question at this price, how amazing is Burberry's leopard print scarf printed over their trademark check?

Burberry Animal Print Check Cashmere Scarf £395


Still a luxury option, but a great bargain in the sale is this beauty from Jaegar, made from a modal blend so would be cosy yet lightweight:

Jaegar Natural Leopard Print Scarf £30 from £75


A wider style, more like mine from Hush, is this classic scarf in the sale at Hobbs:

Hobbs Leopard Scarf £39 from £49


Reiss also has a classic animal print scarf in the sale, edged in black:

Reiss Animal Print Scarf £45 from £69


And finishing with an amazing bargain in the sale at Warehouse, a lightweight classic scarf for £5:

Warehouse Classic Animal Print Scarf £5 from £18

 
 
Has anyone else found any sales bargains or have you moved on to new season?
 
Happy Friday!

  1. I adore leopard print. The Hush one looks fantastic on you. I love how you've just left it loose and draped like that.

  6. An animal print scarf is a definite must! I own several in different shades and use them more than any of my other scarves.
