Leopard print comeback
BY Anni Leppälä

In recent years, leopard print has made a strong comeback, becoming a key feature in many fashion collections and street style looks.

Designers have used it in various forms, from clothing items like dresses, skirts, and coats to accessories such as bags, shoes, and scarves.

It's often considered a statement piece that can add a touch of boldness and fierceness to any outfit.

This trend has however been around for quite some time, as it was often seen in Hollywood worn by glamorous actresses like Marilyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor.

Adidas Taking Over This Spring

Who does not love a great statement piece in their wardrobe?

Leopard print clothing and accessories has made their comeback into our closets again, and these pieces are ready to be worn in 2024.

From nails, bags, shoes, jeans and bodysuits, we have seen this pattern everywhere.

Adidas + Leopard = yes please? When I think of which shoes to style with a pair of leopard jeans, my mind runs to Adidas sambas.

In late 2023 Adidas blessed us all and brought out just what we needed. They released the Wales Bonner Autumn/Winter 2023 collection including a pair of leopard print sneakers.
