Wardrobe Staple: The Leopard Print Coat

leopard print coat shopping wish list
I have a love affair with anything leopard print. I think it’s as much of a classic wardrobe staple as the little black dress, the white button-down shirt, and a pair of blue jeans. In fact, if I had to choose a bumper sticker for my car, it’d probably read, ‘Leopard print is the new black.’ Needless to say, if you asked me what’s one item you should definitely invest in for your Fall/Winter wardrobe, I’d without a doubt suggest to go for the leopard print coat! Trust me, it’s a timeless statement piece that’ll be with you season after season. If for some reason you’ve read that last statement and have some doubts in your head, I’ll tell you my firsthand experience why I know that leopard print will never go out of style. But first, check out my favorite leopard print coats below that you can shop for right now…

You may have seen me wearing this vintage leopard print coat a few times already, on this blog and on Instagram (see here and here). This coat has been with me for ages. In fact, I bought this coat when I was still in high school! Yup, it is from way back in the day! Many moons later, I’m now in my thirties and I’m still happily wearing the exact same coat. See, some trends may come and go, but a good find is a good find that will remain stylish forever. I suspect even if one day leopard print is put on the “out list” (for reasons I will never comprehend), I’ll still be wearing it. Leopard print 4Ever! Who’s with me?
