Leopard Print Coat! The Readers Choice

The leopard print coat…

You may remember a while back, those little videos of me trying on all those gorgeous coats and jackets in MandCo and I just couldn’t make up mind and asked for help? Well, it was a unanimous decision by you all that it had to be this leopard print coat…



I posted the MandCo AW17 collection a while back and had said then how much I had liked this coat, but there were so many lovely ones I just had to go into the store and have a try on and still couldn’t make up my mind! I knew I could rely on my Insta friends to help. And if you are one of those that helped me choose, it was a close choice between this leopard one and this pink one came in a close second. So thanks to all of you, and I have to agree this was the best choice and I love it!

Turns out that this coat is a very popular choice…

This coat has caught my eye on so many occasions too. It’s been featured in all the glossy mags and I’ve spotted it on various bloggers and friends on Instagram too. One thing that did catch my eye was that so far, every time I have spotted this coat somewhere, it’s been worn with Black. Mainly a black roll neck jumper has been the norm and it’s no surprise with the round neck detail (this looks great with a colourful scarf too by the way)

Not boring beige!

So I’ve paired my leopard print coat with Beige. You all know how I prefer my lighter colours over dark and I think Beige pairs up with the lighter tones in the leopard print. Beige in my book is so underrated, a lot of  “Boring Beige” talk in the blogosphere, but I love it and I’m wearing it!

The coat is lightweight but warm and the length is perfect for me. This would be knee length on the average height woman. It’s such an easy to wear item and quite a showstopper. I’ve just looked online and it’s currently on offer from £75 to £50 which I think is an absolute steal. You can find it here but be quick, it’s limited stock!

Leopard seems to be more popular than ever


The only accessories that I’ve added are hints of Gold and kept the look quite minimal for a smart/casual look. I think the coat would look great with Red too, so I’m on the hunt for a nice Red roll neck jumper to wear with this. I’ve spotted so much leopard print this year, have you? I think it’s always going to be popular, but it seems to be more so this year.

    That’s a really lovely coat Laurie. I’m pretty sure I have seen this, or something similar on lots of ladies on my travels around Oxford Street over the last couple of weeks. It really suits you! Thanks for joining us for the #DreamTeam x

    Very smart looking! Love it, great premise for blog too. You should never give up your high heels! Although to be honest I have switched to a thicker high heel, after my last kid my balance isn’t quite the same as it used to be. Can’t rock those 5 inch stilettos anymore!

  5. December 7, 2017 / 5:55 pm

    Leopard pattern is by far my favorite during winter time. You look gorgeous!!!!

    It’s such an statement piece, especially with a nude coloured outfit. I never wear patterned coats because I find them tricky to style and wear more than once

      I understand what you mean. This is quite muted so it’s easy to mix whatever you like! Thank you for stopping by xx

    I really like that leopard print coat. Leopard is apparently the new neutral and goes with everything, but some how I can’t figure out how to introduce it to my wardrobe. It often feels a bit brash. I really like this leopard print coat because it is less garish than others I have seen. It is more subtle and very classy. Pen x #AnythingGoes

      It’s easy to wear with these muted tones. I think if your outfit is not patterned you can get away with most colours with this, especially jeans. xx

    Laurie, I can see why this coat was the favorite! It is fabulous. And beige looks so good on you that you should absolutely wear it! (It does tend to wash me out, but I will wear it if the right amount of other colors near my face). Magnificent outfit!

    I adore leopard print so just love this coat, Laurie! And I love the way you’ve styled it too. Beautiful. I do like the pink coat but would’ve chosen the leopard… you can’t go wrong with a bit of animal print!!

    Yes, yes, yes! Leoprint compliments a simple cut perfectly. And yes x 3 again for teaming it with beige (which I love too), the lighter colour lifts and showcases the gorgeous cost. Great choice, fabulous styling! Hugs, x

    Laurie, this is a stunning coat! I probably would have chosen it too, as I love the longer length and you styled it so lovely with the neutrals. i have a swing leopard coat and a leopard cropped jacket in my closet and love em.
