The new $18 Kmart leopard satin slip skirt people are literally racing each other to get.

From this day forward, let it be known. One can never own too many leopard print slip skirts.

They’re flattering. They feel nice on your legs. They make you look polished and put together on days when you’re feeling anything but. What’s not to like?

And in excellent news, this week, bargain hunters and Instagram fashion influencers are racing each other to their nearest shopping centre because Kmart has released their own leopard print slip skirt.

Oh, and it’s $18.

Side note – before we get into the leopard skirt, let’s discuss the fashion crime that is festival chaps. Mamamia’s Clare Stephens road tested this trend below, post continues after video.

From what we’ve seen on social media from our favourite affordable fashion Instagram accounts (hey Tina Abeysekara from @trashtotreasured), Kmart’s version of the classic leopard satin slip skirt is a tad shorter than ones from other brands and is made from a thicker satin material.

As for the quality, Pip from the Instagram account Kmart Grapevine told Mamamia:

“The skirt is actually quite thick and has a pretty luxe feel. It’s not a thin satin, it’s a bit of a heavier fabric than I expected so it has a super nice drape. In terms of quality, I think it’s actually really excellent quality for the price point. You’d expect to pay quite a bit more than $18 elsewhere.”

Tina added, “The Kmart satin skirt is a softer, thicker material which means it drapes beautifully and doesn’t cling. Perfect to team with tights and boots through winter.”

The leopard skirt is yet to appear on Kmart’s online store at the time of publishing, so right now, your best bet is to hightail it down to your nearest Kmart and pray to the affordable fashion gods they have it in your size.

If they don’t, your options are: Kmart-hop around the different stores until you find one, wait until it comes on sale online, or satisfy your need for leopard by buying one of Kmart’s other leopard pieces.

Last week, the people went bananas for these $10 Kmart leopard sneakers, and Instagram fashion influencers are also loving this $20 Kmart Strappy Woven Jumpsuit (sizes 6-20).

LEOPARD ALERT.. Spotted a NEW jumpsuit with POCKETS for $20 at @kmartaus I teamed it with my Jacket/Boots from @targetaus but you could easily where it with sandals in Summer (NOTE: the jumpsuit has a strappy top).Thought I’d recap some of the other LEOPARD goodness they have in store: dress, clips, skirt, shoes and slippers (SWIPE ???? for more). Is it just me or has this week been crazy busy? We start school holidays next week which means CONS: fighting, spending more money than usual but PROS: sleep ins ???? . . . . . . #kmart #kmartaus #kmartaddict #kmartstyling #addictedtobargains #shoppingaddict #new #womens #clothes #clothing #jumpsuit #dress #shoes #slippers #ootd #changeroom #selfie #outfitoftheday #fashion #fashionblogger #leopardlover #butfirstletmetakeaselfie
