There are few hard and fast rules of men's style, other than steering clear of socks and sandals, and never upstaging your girlfriend.

But for anyone looking to sleek it up for Spring, why not go rogue and nail it with a bit of leopard print? Before writing this off as crazy talk, hear us out...

We're not suggesting you lay down the gauntlet and step out repping head to toe leopard; after all, there's no easier way of announcing your ambitions to become a pimp than that. But used subtly, it looks slick and adds interest to a simple outfit (simple being the operative word) without looking overly thought out.

Take this awesome turquoise leopard sweater below, for instance. It looks great with black jeans and lets people know you've got your finger on the sartorial pulse without looking like a tool. Win!
