Leopard Coat

Leopard Coats ???, kate moss online

Angelina Jolie and Kate Moss images I've collected over the years, my original inspirations, before blogs and street style.

I LOVE LEOPARD PRINT!!!! It's a "crazy classic" like a Pucci dress or zebra rug. That said, I'm very particular about leopard print, because bad leopard print is heinous. Also I won't wear it sheer/tight on my skin because it makes me look like I have some sort of skin disease. On the higher end of the spectrum Roberto Cavalli, Dolce & Gabbana, and YSL are known for their leopard prints.

  2. I love leopard print! Your trench is fabulous and I love this outfit - double leopard! I've been on the lookout for the right coat for years and always have Mossy's picture in mind when looking for one. Still haven't found it yet.

  3. It's certainly a crazy classic but I will try it one of these days! haha

    Not so many guys do leopard lately or not that I know of.

  4. Your trench is gorgeous! But I'm also eyeing that Baccarat ring. That's gorgeous, too.

    A beautiful look!

  5. I love leopard! I've always wanted a wrap coat. There are a few on Etsy but without trying them on...

    I have a vintage Louis Feraud silk chiffon one but I have to be in the right mood.

    Wearing with your jeans and tee is spot on! Fabulous!

  6. you're right, it can be hard to find a leopard print that isn't somehow reminiscent of, say, the jersey shore. your trench coat is great! a perfect example of sophisticated leopard. ~joelle

  7. Love these examples: I think the trench Angelina is wearing is the one I saw Carine Roitfeld wearing when I shot her quickly @ LFW in September. I wondered at the time who made it.

    I can't get over how 'classic' and versatile it is. The way you've styled it is simply gorgeous, Pret. And especially since I happen to know how pretty your face is, I know this looks gorgeous on you.

    You've got me in the mood now to wear faded jeans, white tee, black heels and my leopard coat for the next week! Total inspiration. (and agree re: your rule on not tight on the skin or it looks like a disease. So wise.)

    Have a lovely lovely weekend! xox

  8. polka dot: I'd like to see your leopard coat! This picture of Angelina is 6 years old at least, she is most likely wearing Dolce & Gabbana. Carine is probably wearing current Givenchy. If you look again they are very different in pattern, color, cut, and material. I have eagle fashion eyes, especially when it comes to leopard.

  10. I recently helped a friend in the leopard print coat search, it was so hard :) As the balance between tackiness and amazingness is really slight :)
    I agree on your styling choices in balancing leopard with casual jeans and white tshirt.

  11. Great outfit! Love the loose fit of the jeans and white tee to break down the leopard print.

  12. i love this!!!
    and it's great to see an extra touch of leopard (scarf) against the coat print. this lightweight version will be just right for your "winters".
    i have yet to find the perfect leopard coat. perhaps it will find me.

  13. lookin goooood!!

    i know i always say this when you wear those DH jeans, but i love them.

    you know what i like? leopard lining in jackets and skirts and things. dolce and cavalli usually have them. no one can see when you're wearing them, but i love it nonetheless.

    i'm actually having trouble with the Pleats Please piece... hopefully i'll have some time to play around with it.

  14. I wish I had more leo-print accessories in my closet.LV scarf or Wang's leo-clutch would be
    really desired:)

    I like You wearing leopard coat and... I am totally agree with Koko-Your jeans are A-M-A-Z-I-N-G.

  16. Found your blog not too long ago. I love leopard print. I was fortunate to find a leopard print swing trench a few years back at Marshall's on clearance for $20. It actually reverses to a solid dark brown. Get lots of compliments when I wear that coat. Looks very vintage.

  17. Amazing trench coat! Also, those jeans look sooo good on you! But then again, with your legs I imagine all jeans look good!
