Got this top the other day and it is STUNNING on - wore with black skinny jeans and leopard courts (vintage Bertie) last Friday, any other ideas how to style it apart from how they've done it (black fitted trousers, black shoes, bag). thanks!

I have the same top and wore with black skinnies too. No idea what else to do with it so will watch and wait also...

I'd wear it to work as styled. Or with my black leather pencil skirt (tucked in) and either plain black heels or my heeled ankle boots. I'd also wear it with my black leather leggings - untucked - with black and white Converse or biker boots. All of the above to work or socially.

Single - ooh black leather pencil I wonder where does a reasonable one, asos maybe? any recs for black leather leggings.

yep I was thinking same re heels or ankle boots, both black.

Slightly and to anyone else, yes it is a seriously gorgeous top on, very flattering and the price is amazing! I love it!

I'd wear it very dressed down so probably with jeans. It would feel a bit 'full on' with anything smart but that's just me and my personal taste.

FabuLouse if they have any left in store it is lovely - I think fairly classic too...

My leather pencil skirt was from Zara about 2 years ago (sorry) but leather leggings from Top Shop Oxford Street about 2 months ago.

That is a gorgeous top and a really great price. It has gone straight onto my to-buy list. I saw a pair of pewter-coloured semi-shiny coated skinnies mentioned somewhere recently (possibly on Bum40) which might be worth investigating. Oh hang on, I think they were from Boden. Those could work well, maybe.

These are they:

lurking thanks re the pewter, that's a good idea at least to browse online...

trust me I looked at this top briefly thought hmmm that's low stock (in the shop) then thought good shape, length etc - tried it on with black skirt and was sold, the pewter-colour of the animal print with the black is super flattering and it doesn't look tacky at all as can some animal print!

In fact they had a gorgeous ivory/white/cream sweater with lace sleeves but it was a relaxed fit (I think) - it wasn't exactly what I wanted but near enough (I rarely wear white etc), wore it out and I need to get layering right (long sleeved top underneath) but it looked great - wore day and night... my friend immediately complimented me on it.

Strange with Zara I find them hit and miss sometimes yet this autumn/winter have struck a few gems with them!

lurking oh those are nice... got some ideas if not to buy now for Gift Vouchers for me for Christmas to drop hints for!

I don't do animal print either but it's really not 'in your face' leopard print, quite subtle. I got lots of very nice comments when I wore it very rare for me.
