Leopard Love

February 21, 2011

A few months ago I bought a fabulous vintage faux fur leopard coat. I adore it! I’ve generally been wearing it for evenings out as I’m not yet sure if I can pull it off in the daytime (I have issues with patterns and colours, remember?). As I would like to get a bit more use out of it before spring arrives, I have turned to the blogosphere for some inspiration.

I then turned to Polvyore to play around with some outfit options (yes, I realize these are mostly in my style and not as adventurous as the photos above).

leopard + wellies

leopard + green + cream

leopard + black

leopard + dress

If you’re longing for some leopard but haven’t yet found a fabulous vintage version, have a look at these options:

leopard coat, $59.99, French Connection

vintage leopard coat, $185, IKAHN

leopard jacket, $595, Wren at Les Nouvelles

autograph signing coat, $99.99, ModCloth

What do you think? Do you own one? How do you wear it? What’s your favourite pairing?

      The coats available for purchase are all faux. I have a feeling that the ones in the first set of photographs are also faux.
