A Lightweight Leopard Coat
This has really been a banner year for leopard print coats and jackets. Leopard may be somewhat on trend this season, but to me it’s a style perennial and a neutral. No, I didn’t need another leopard print coat, but one that’s light enough to wear several months out of the year feels like a good investment.
This cotton twill coat has been calling my name all season, but I took a chance and waited for it to go on sale. As of yesterday, the coat was still available in a few sizes. I’m wearing DK 34. (It runs a little large, I think). More sizes available here,
though at full price now also on sale!
I’m so pleased! The cotton twill fabric is lovely, and meets my criteria for “softly structured.” (Lining is silk.) The print is good-looking, and the cut is timeless. I’ll be able to wear this here in all but the warmest months. And because the sleeves are bracelet-length, I don’t need to have them shortened!
I love pairing leopard print and red. This Gucci crossbody has turned out to be such a great little everyday bag, and really holds a lot without being too heavy. The shadow opal stone bracelet (gifted) from French Kande features a Jeanne medallion. It’s a nice neutral piece that goes with everything.
These Stuart Weitzman boots are now 13? 14? years old and have been one of my best footwear investments to date. They’re incredibly comfortable and add a dash of refinement to a casual look. More Stuart Weitzman ankle boots here.
