Trend Spotting: The Leopard Coat

January 27, 2010

A trend that is more a classic than a trend is the leopard print coat. Sure, there are times it is more in or more out, but if you have one hanging in your closet – you will be pulling it out all the days of your life.

Leopard is such a fun print to play with and on a coat it makes it that statement piece that can throw any outfit over the edge. Jeans and tee.. with a leopard coat. A basic black dress.. with a leopard coat. See! It does the job!

Pairing it with black is always chic, but mixing it with a bold color adds the drama. Try it on with red, turquoise or even purple. I promise you will be a show-stopper.

If you are wondering where to find your own magical coat, I suggest searching for vintage version, either online or at your local shop around the corner.

      Agree with you Ashley! Leopard can pop in the smallest of accessory to give that little umph to the outfit. A small leopard print belt, flats like you suggested or a leopard print scarf.

    I totally agree! Leopard print can almost be a base for me.. I’ll wear it then add bright colors like you suggested.. Or I’ll use it to accessorize.. like the belt, flats, or a headband. Ana Maggie, if you are looking for leopard print on a budget.. Express has a faux fur leopard coat on sale right now.. or they did last week. Thanks for the tips B. Jones🙂
