H&M has the perfect leopard print skirt for less than £20

Stop everything you're doing, because I've found the perfect leopard print skirt, and it'll set you back less than £20. Even if you're a bit scared of animal prints, this is a minimalist way to do the trend.

Although the calf-length slip skirt is so on trend for SS19, it's actually a style that will stand the test of time, so it's not like you'll want to ditch it come next season.

Plus it's super easy to style. For this right now, I'd recommend wearing it with cream boots and an oversized beige knit, and for spring, team it with a barely-there sandal and white vest top.

Or, you can go down the urban luxe route and team it with a chunky trainer and puffer jacket. Also cool.

At £19.99, the skirt looks much more expensive than it actually is (I've tried it out in store and the quality is great), plus at the moment there is 15% off if you spend £60 online, so it's a no brainer if you ask me.

Penny Goldstone is the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire, covering everything from catwalk trends to royal fashion and the latest high street and Instagram must-haves.

Penny grew up in France and studied languages and law at the Sorbonne Nouvelle University in Paris before moving to the UK for her MA in multimedia journalism at Bournemouth University. She moved to the UK permanently and has never looked back (though she does go back regularly to stock up on cheese and wine).

Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at MoneySavingExpert.com, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.

However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.

Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
