There’s a scene in Sex and the City where Berger makes fun of a hat Carrie’s wearing and she walks away from him without a word. The subtext: ‘I couldn’t care less what you think about my clothes, but you’re trying to hurt me and that’s not OK.’

. It’s divisive. You love it or hate it. Some will try to shame you, call you Mrs. Robinson (which they don’t understand is a compliment) or a cougar. To that we say walk off and don’t look back. For leopard-print fans, it’s a simple of case of, if you know you know. Never apologise, never explain.
“My hat is FABULOUS,” Carrie says to Berger, firmly, when he catches up to her. As is leopard print. We know it in our bones. Forever.
