I have been searching for a great, but still affordable, leopard coat for ages. While leopard is indeed a neutral, not all leopard coats are created equal. Done right, a leopard coat is chic, timeless, and adds great pattern and texture to any look. Done wrong, and you will look like you walked out of the Jersey Shore.
Fortunately, this season chic leopard coats seem to be everywhere. I snagged this beauty from J.Crew during one of their big sales (it seems like they are offering amazing discounts every week lately). I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by the shape, pattern, and fit of the coat (I ordered a size 4). It is not a super heavy coat, but perfect to layer over a light sweater or blouse on less frigid days.
This look pretty much sums up my style — I love mixing print, color, and patterns in interesting ways. A couple of people have suggested that if I wanted to grow my blog I should probably feature more basic looks, and I don’t disagree. I have tried basic, and it just isn’t me! Not that I don’t think basic looks are chic, I do. But for me, the fun of fashion is pushing the envelope just a bit. I mean, who wouldn’t want to add a big bow to their blouse lol?
I rounded up a bunch of great leopard coat options below!
What are your thoughts on the leopard coat?
