1. a chic leopard print - small accent for day, understated-but-all-out for night
2. leather, leather, leather
3. over the knee black suede boots
there's been some debate in the blogosphere about how much of a good thing the whole leopard trend is, and quite honestly, i think there are quite a lot of misconceptions about animal print. there is a spectrum, shall we say, where on one end there is Jersey Housewife, while on the other end are the Emmanuelle Alts and Alexa Chungs. i don't see why with some careful selection (all leopard prints are obviously *not* created equal) and attention to color, texture and silhouette, one can choose a timelessly chic leopard accessory or coat (faux, of course!). i feel much more free to wear leopard in my 20s right now, i think because it's such a fun way to incorporate pattern and texture with style and a little bit of subversion.

super chic way to rock some leopard for day
those completely sold out, unavailable Isabel Marant OTK suede boots still haunt my dreams...
i love this photo also because i basically own a version of everything Freja is wearing. minus the mile-long supermodel legs, but this is pretty much what i want to wear every day in the fall
last but not least, emmanuelle alt pulling off the leopard coat against all black, with OTK suede boots - perfection!!
what are your style obsessions this season? :)
