Take a walk on the wild side: the best leopard print pieces to buy now for under £200

When it comes to leopard print, as far as we're concerned, it is always a good idea.

While leopard has had down-times in its sartorial history, having been shunned as the reserve of Bet Lynch for many years, it can, in fact, be the ultimate in chic and style - with the added-benefit of telling everyone that you mean business.

Popularised by the ever-chic Jacqueline Kennedy in the Sixties and championed by Kate Moss her entire life and lately noticed on the feet of the most powerful woman in Britain (our PM, Theresa May) the coat of the big cat has many guises: chic, rock 'n' roll and a little eccentric. 

Whatever your vibe, this season it's also one of the hottest trends, so if you're dotty about spots, then now's the time to stock-up on the sweet stuff.

We've scoured the shops for the best pieces out there, from winter coats, to swimming costumes and accessories.
