keep or return: H&M leopard playsuit

playsuit: H&M (£7.99)

I'm gonna stick my hand up and say that I ADORE leopard print. Anything and everything. I own leopard print scarves, coats, tops, dresses, heck my all time favourite shoes (which I always seem to mention but never actually post a picture of!) are leopard print. When I came across this playsuit in H&M I had a mini fangirling freakout. A playsuit... and leopard print! Perfect!

Playsuits are so effortlessly cool and so easy to wear. You don't have to worry about your bum showing or them riding up! Plus you can throw anything over them, and still look pretty darn chic. I have no qualms about the playsuit itself. Its just the print I'm in two minds about! As much as I personally love leopard print, but the connotations of the print are... emo, tacky, slutty... chavvy! My 15 year old self would never have thought twice about it!

So what do you think? Should it stay or should it go? Is it too tacky or totally chic? Lemme know in the comments!

  6. 100% KEEP!
    It looks gorgeous on you - not remotely chavvy or whatever else you said. & all for a bargain price. Can't go wrong in my opinion!
    In fact I'm quite envious that I haven't got the legs to pull it off myself :p

  20. All I have to say, is if Alison Mosshart can still wear it, then it's good enough for me!

  21. I bought this playsuit too aswell as the one with the black polka dots (which i am in love with) . I wasnt to sure about the print of the leopard print one ( i think its a bit to bold for me) but i think i might just keep it to wear when i go on holiday, haha. But it looks lovely on you!!

  27. It looks really nice on you. It doesn't have to look emo/slutty/chavvy etc, it all depends on what you wear it with. I'm sure whatever you personally pair it with will make it look none of those things! (:
