Our love affair with animal print has been cemented with the latest high-street choices and everyone from Bella Hadid to Kate Moss is showing us how to style our leopard shearling coat this season. You can opt for the casual leopard print faux fur coat a la Kate Moss. For the ultimate ‘I left my house in a rush but still look amazing’ vibe, drape over jeans, a white tee and a thin black scarf. Très chic.

If you're a fan of more tailored pieces, then a structured leopard print coat with shoulder pads and a collar might be more up your alley. Structured leopard coats will also help with a slightly more put-together ensemble, and would look striking paired with a mini skirt and some knee-high boots. You can opt for a faux fur coat if you're looking to be more sustainable, too.

What Season Do You Wear Leopard Print?

Leopard print is most definitely a seasonal print, and often suits the months toward the end of the year, for instance, autumn and winter - but that's not to say that they don't suit the bold and vibrant colour seasons either. Invest in a leopard print coat during the autumn months as a great transitional piece from those cooler months into the cold winter ones or grab a lighter option in spring and summer to make the most of the print.

To make your leather print coat look chic without contradicting practicality, pair it with neutral base layers, such as white, beige and nude shirts and knitwear. Black jeans and trousers work very well with leopard print too, as it compliments the existing black throughout the print itself.

Is Leopard Print Old Fashioned?

Rather than 'old-fashioned', we like to call leopard print timeless_._ Standing the test of time_,_ leopard print was first spotted being worn in the 1930s, followed by the 1940s when the likes of Ertha Kitt donned the fundamental wardrobe staple.

Despite its longstanding presence on the fashion scene which may lead one to think of the print as being dated, it's still a predominantly popular and chic addition to any wardrobe that we can't see disappearing anytime soon - similar to the likes of a trusty trench coat.
