Ways to wear a leopard print coat

I have always wanted a leopard print coat. I can’t quite believe that I haven’t actually had one until now – my love of leopard being so strong, but I haven’t!

Here is a post where I’m in a leopard print cardigan.
Here is a post where I’m making a leopard print skirt.
Here is a post where I’m showing off a leopard print catsuit.
This was a leopard print dress that I wore to a blog conference (with my leopard print shoes!)

Do you see? The love for leopard is clear, but I’ve finally put this omission right and 2016 is the winter of the leopard print coat!

I got my coat from JD Williams who have a wide variety of women’s winter coats – at very good prices! This coat is faux fur and is a great length – long enough to cover my bum (which is code for – I can wear it with leggings!) but not too long that it gets in the way. The fur is a lovely thickness, so the coat feels warm but it is not too thick that it gets claustrophobic!

Leopard print coat out for coffee

Here I am at the weekend out for coffee, teaming the coat with smart charcoal leggings and heeled boots! We were planning a shopping trip to IKEA on a busy Saturday so I needed to coffee up first! However the roomsets in IKEA provided a nice backdrop to show off the coat even more! My son and I enjoyed the kitchen apartment set up for some role play!

A coat like this is definitely a statement wear. You will attract attention in it, so be prepared for that. I felt that my overall smart look was enhanced by the funky leopard print coat, so it looked fashionable but not ‘too much’, because the rest of my colour palette that day was shades of charcoal. However a coat like this is also versatile, I created a sporty look in the shot below by adding trainers and a sweat top. The hat was necessary that day as it was raining but I’d probably go without the hat to recreate this look again.

However don’t be afraid to mix it up… Leopard print can create a funky look when teamed with other prints. The clash of the prints gives it an edgy style, so try breton stripes like the shot below, or even a red tartan print would work.

The most important thing to remember with leopard print is that it is all about the fun, so have fun creating your looks and wearing your coat!

Thank you to JD Williams for sending me this coat to review, all opinions are my own.

    • Thank you, the weight and thickness of the coat is definitely a plus. It’s cosy but not so thick I feel I’m wearing a duvet!

  • I can’t actually believe you have never owned a leopard print coat, it is very you! I’m nearly as surprised that it came from JD Williams, I’m off for a browse of their website!
