Seeing Spots...

Style Theory: Leopard Print, now regarded as a neutral, a classic, no longer confined to be worn with black, leopard rules when you want to add interest to your look. A leopard print coat can create a rock chick vibe or a chic look..

Kate, Sienna et al looking pretty amazing in their leopard print coats but it was actually the photo below of Meredith Hepner-Chapman on Instagram that made me decide I really 'needed' one..she looks utterly cool (yes, she is just popping to the gym but love this look) I adore the leopard coat completely dressed down, it looks nonchalantly cool...

So the search begins, admittedly I am a little late to the party on this one...Here are the best on the high street now...
Mango was £89.99 now £39.99
I tried this one on and it is a main contender, I would like it a touch longer but it would be a fab Spring coat as it is not super thick.
Mango was £79.99 now £39.99
I tried this on today, it is pretty cool, chunkier than the coat above another contender..

Carven @The Outnet £342
The dream coat, I adore Carven and this would elevate your look, super chic and beautifully cool.

Asos Brave Soul £50
A longer option..

Jane Normal @House of Fraser now £45
Super classic, dramatic collar and a great price.

Miss Selfridge @House of Fraser now £25
What is not to love, dabble in the leopard print coat for look for £25 this coat was £89 originally. Only available in small, but snap it up if it is your size..

Now for a cool sweater to wear underneath the coat..wear big and baggy..
Wildfox @Very Exclusive £90
The ultimate cool sweater, oversized and slouchy (the same brand as Meredith is wearing above, unfortunately her 'Hell no cardio' sweater has sold out) but I do love this one..
Wildfox @Very Exclusive £90
Add a pop of colour under your leopard print coat with this fab pink sweater (perfect for Valentines day too)
Mother Sweatshirt £45
Aren't we all just winging it?! Love this sweater from The Mother Shop. £15 of each sweater sold goes to KIDS CHARITY UK who do amazing work with disabled children and their families.

Topshop £26
Topshop £26
Topshop £30
This is the tall version of the sweater but I quite like wearing my jumpers long at the moment.


This is a look I will be trying, fab for this time of the year and perfect for the weekend..

  4. That is a very cool gym look. I love it all, the grey joggers, trainers, sweatshirt and coat. I think a furry coat could work similarly too...
