FALL SHOPPING: A LEOPARD COAT

1 // 2 // 3

Happy September! We’re already four days (!) into the new month which means we can officially start focusing on fall shopping. If there’s one pattern we all know will never go out of style it’s leopard. And it’s not going anywhere this season. We’re going to see the feline print on everything from blouses to ballet flats. My personal pick for the print? Outerwear. A leopard coat is a neutral when it comes to fall dressing. You can throw it on over jeans and a tee to dress up a causal look, or pair it over an LBD at a cocktail party. It goes with everything. The key here is to keep the rest of your look simple. Let the coat take center stage. Just take a look at these ladies above for inspiration. While you can certainly make a serious investment on one of these coats, I actually prefer this budget-friendly option from ASOS. This way you’ll have a a little money left over to spend on some other fall goodies.
