I think they are acceptable as accents (skinny belt, shoes (preferably flat), small clutch, muted version scarf, etc - you are on dangerous Kat Slaterish type territory when they are a coat (though there are some exceptions) or a skirt, etc.
I love love LOVE leopard print. It's all about how you dress it. If you dress like Kat Slater anyway, then of course it's going to look chavvy. However, if you dress with a bit of a rocky edge to your look, then it looks fab.
I fall into the latter category of course! I adore my leopard print mac, fingerless gloves, platforms, flats, bag, bodycon dress, t shirt dresses, underwear, nightwear...not worn at the same time of course!
Okay now everyone has said it, if I'm honest I don't particularly like that skirt, and can't imagine it looking good. That said, I'd have to see it on you before I really could say that for absolute certain.
Its less about the animal print and more about the overall shape, length and style of the skirt.
If you really like it, I think you should buy it anyway - at least you know nobodyelsewillhaveit its a bit different.
