We associate summer with floral prints, but within the last few weeks celebs have been spotted wearing leopard prints.

Leopard print gets a bad rap for being tacky, but when worn right it can look pretty amazing.

Sophia Bush wore a leopard print dress whilst shopping at Switch Boutique in Beverly Hills carrying a 3.1 Phillip Lim bag and wearing Dior gladiators.

Cheryl Cole was spotted making her way to the Glasgow X Factor auditions wearing a Pink Label for Charlotte Olympia strapless leopard print dress with Christian Louboutin Volnay 140 python sandals.

I would never have thought leopard print jeans could look good, but Hilary Duff manages to make her Rebecca Minkoff Beetle Juice leopard jeans work for her off-duty look.

Whilst busy in New York on Monday, Katy Perry wore a yellow leopard print strapless mini Dolce & Gabbana dress with black lace detail.
