What to Wear: Zara Leopard shirt

Today’s What to Wear (and part 2 of my London packing) is an item that I just had to have. I saw it on a shop assistant in Selfridges and instantly fell for the discreet leopard print and fierce but subtle stud detail on the collar and cuffs. It’s a steal from Zara at £29.99 and I took it away with me to London last weekend, wearing it to travel down straight from work that day (seen here) and then again the next day in a quirkier and more trend led ensemble for a day out sight seeing in London town.

The work outfit really isn’t anything tricky, but for the weekend and cool East London I decided to try it with my H&M pink trousers (also here) and trusty leather jacket, teaming them with my silver glitter Converse for ultimate comfort when pavement pounding.

Later on, the weather was kind and the afternoon got a little warmer, so after popping back to the hotel to drop off some shopping, I switched my leather jacket for the French Connection nude one I bought recently as it is lighter. It also turned out the Converse weren’t so comfortable so I also swapped to my pointed flats again and had a whole new outfit!

Deviating slightly from the blouse to my capsule wardrobe for the weekend, the only item not covered in the outfits above and in this post that I took with me were pair of navy tailored shorts. I wore them both evening, first with the blouse and tights and patent heels, and then the following evening for a friend’s birthday party when I teamed them with a navy loose fit tee, the nude jacket, tights heels and a statement necklace, as seen in the gallery below.

As always, let me know your thoughts. I should also issue a disclaimer, ’tis Zara, not I that should be blamed for the damage that blouse will do to your credit card, although I think it’s a minor dent for such a cool, but wearable item. 🙂

  1. Leopard print/ leopard-print. Subtle! I love this, especially with the leather jacket (still trying to find one like it!). Sadly my hulk-esque torso means blouses are not an option for me, if they fit on the arms then I’m bursting out of the front! Bloomin’ swimmer’s shoulders….


  2. I have this blouse!! It’s gorgeous isn’t it? Often struggle to find anything in Zara (it’s always too messy for me!) but this was a real find!


  3. I know they didn’t exactly work out for you on the day but I love your silver Converse!! I have a bit of a Converse habit (‘Hi, my name’s Anita and I’m a Converse-aholic’) and I’ve just given in and ordered my own custom-designed pair from the Converse website -so excited!!!!!!

    • Anita, I don’t know what it is about blimming Converse, they look like the worlds comfiest shoes but make my little toe really sore – I think the rubber is so tough it doesn’t give and mine being glitter are less soft perhaps. I might get some of the low profile ones. I looked at the site recently tho and the customised ones look awesome!

  4. Hello Rebecca – just wanted to say that these type of posts (and the ones about where you stayed and visited in London) are my faves!!!! x x
