Pre-Fall has me wanting to wear animal prints!

Leopard (mostly)! Tiger! Cheetah! Possibilities are endless, and primarily in the form of outerwear. It’s the one type of coat I always see during fashion week and admire, but can’t seem to find one that’s right for me. 

So I want to know, do you have a secret to finding the perfect animal-inspired piece? And how do you wear it?

Rochas, Coach, Maison Margiela, Adam Lippes.

  • I love animal prints. I have two coats. Four pairs of shoes. One scarf. :)

    One of my coats is a short, kind of cropped jacket, that I snagged from a local retailer a couple of years ago, and the other is a vintage piece (hits about mid thigh) from eBay. That one required a fair bit of tailoring, but it was totally worth it to get the fit I wanted. I had been scoping out eBay fir quite a while (like two or three years) before I finally found the right one…but as I said, totally worth it. :)

  • Great selection! I’m loving that Coach one.

  • I love animal print coats but they just look like big fluffy robes on me. Kind of “The Ropers” look… I still remember a leo print coat from Sandro a few seasons back… so gorgeous… but so ugly on me!

  • Ah Ah Ah exactement comme moi je n’arrive jamais à trouver le bon manteau imprimé Léopard!!! Je crois que c’est une malediction!
    Total.. je me suis rabattue sur les accessoires ( chaussures, sac…) et franchement c’est pas mal surtout que ca booste le look!


  • A la cool !!! J’ai flashé sur le modèle léopard de chez Caroll. Je le porte en décalé avec des bottes de motards ou des baskets… Bon j’avoue le 1er jour beaucoup de regards sur moi mais après un pure bonheur. Tous mes voeux à toute l’équipe ????????????

  • Honnêtement je déteste le léopard. Le seule version que j’aime bien c’est noir et blanc, à tout petit motif. J’ai vu une chemise Equipment comme ça, et c’est franchement réussi.

    I am beginning to just adore an animal print. I have a cardigan and a silk top that get a lot of use but its moved on to a favorite pair of loafers that go with everything, new suede D’Orsay flats half print half leather sort of unexpected cool and hopefully soon to arrive boots. Michael Kors says the print should be worn as a neutral so it pretty much works with most items you already own. I’m all for that.
