A statement pant is a stylish companion for lifting an off-duty look, and the fashion world’s obsession with animal prints of all kind seems to be running into next season.
Stella McCartney’s lust-worthy leopard print pants first stole our hearts (and forced us to mentally spend a big chunk of our new season wardrobe budget) on the Resort runways back in June, when, slotted amongst a wash of summer-soft shades and zingy florals was the covetable printed pant paired ever so artfully with a matching top and bomber jacket.
However, coming from a top-notch design house these pants are accompanied by a stratospheric price tag, too; yours for a budget blasting £625.
But if you’re looking for an equally stylish hit of animal print on a more realistic budget, head over to high street haven H&M, where you can land a strikingly similar version for a mere £39.99. We promise your pocket won’t even realise the lighter cash load it’s carrying!
