longtime LAM readers know that i have a fondness for leopard print, and firmly believe in its neutral properties. that leopard print coat has been on my radar for ages since this iconic photo made the rounds of style blogs a few years ago.
after some trial and error, i think i may have finally, finally found it.
ON SALE: perfect leopard print coat, uniqlo jeans, j.crew tee,
well, this is the perfect chic approximation of EA's version – vintage-y pattern, check. just-right Marant bator fit (FYI i'm wearing the US size 4), check. no embellishments (ie: loud buttons), check. it's chic, it's classy, and it looks way more expensive than it is.

P.S.: a few readers have asked about the weight / texture of this coat – it's a thinner coat, and the faux fur is very fine and similar to haircalf. still room for layering underneath though. i like that it's a lighterweight piece that's ideal for fall and spring as well.
what do you think? do you have any leopard print wardrobe wildcards (or favorites)?
