So the festival season is coming to an end and DJ-come-style-icon Jameela Jamil has made sure that thanks to her choice of hosiery, it finishes with a flourish. Making an appearance at the glamorous V Festival (with Beyonce headlining, it was going to be nothing short of fabulous), the gorgeous 27 year old has clearly perfected her festival style, achieving a balance between all things pretty and practical. Oversized parka in case of torrential downpour? Tick. Sassy sunglasses for when the weather cheers up? Tick. Animal print tights for fashion kudos? Double tick.
Proving that festivals don’t always mean muddy wellies and socks, the quirky Radio One DJ teamed her ruffled mini dress with a pair of fetching printed tights. A tribute to the trend that’s set to invade our wardrobes this season, animal print hosiery is the easiest and most commitment free way to get involved. Whether you’re a lover of leopard or crave subtle snake print to finish off that outfit, we’ve got the ultimate selection to choose from.
For a look just like Miss Jamil’s, treat your hosiery collection to the Wild Tights by Jonathan Aston. Available in two different colour combinations (nude with a black print and black with a black print), the exotic animal print is perfect for adding a little interest to understated dresses and skirts. Using both sheer and opaque fabric, an eye catching leopard print runs from the toes to the waist, making for a cheeky alternative to those everyday sheer tights. With a loyal celebrity fan base too (including the likes of Pixie Lott and the Kardashians), these have just moved to the top of our lust have list this season!
If you’re still coveting animal print but can’t bear to part with your cosy leggings, we’ve got some good news. Knowing all too well that when the temperatures plummets we turn to anything that can conserve heat, Italian brand Trasparenze have created the luxurious & lovely Mystery Leggings. As soft as they are smooth, these combine that snug feeling that leggings do so well with a slinky snakeskin effect. Demure enough for you to wear to work but with a sartorial edge that makes them party appropriate, it’s safe to say we’re big fans. Likewise, the Legend Leggings from the brand pay homage to the big cats of the animal kingdom, with a faux denim print and leopard print fade. Team with a cropped leather jacket and Chelsea boots for complete festival chic.
Jameela Jamil, we want your wardrobe!
