The Faux Fur Leopard Coat–Day 5

faux fur leopard coat

Ok, ok, ok. I cannot and will not unnecessarily force everyone into wearing leopard print. It isn’t for us all. And that is ok. All this week I have simply attempted to show various ways of wearing leopard print: from a touch of leopard print with jeans to leopard print skirts paired with black, to overly bold and even overly casual, leopard print can be embraced in subtle or over the top ways. I will attempt to say however, that there is one leopard print item that with resounding ease will elevate any woman’s day: this item would be faux fur leopard coat!

Similar to the way I styled two leopard print skirts with black, I’ve done the same with my faux fur leopard coat. I’ve had this coat since I moved to Hong Kong, so that means it’s been in my wardrobe six years this winter. Unless something tragic happens to it, I don’t think I’ll ever get rid of it. And yes, it only gets about a weeks worth of wear here in Hong Kong, but that one winter I did go home, it of course went with me. The best thing about a faux fur leopard coat is how chic I feel with one on. In these pictures, underneath the actual jacket I’m wearing a tank top, but I’m so warm! Simply paired with sparkly goodness, and I don’t even need any accessories. If I live in a cold weathered climate I think this would become my uniform: it’s chic yet comfortable all at once.

This time around, I’ve offered some faux fur leopard coats for you to shop. Personally, I used free shipping to HK and went with ASOS. (Pretty much a ton of vendors offer free shipping these days. Just look for a promo somewhere on the site.) I chose prices from $40 at target to $240 from Anthropologie. Whatever your budget, there’s definitely a faux fur leopard coat out there for you!

  • Love the jacket!!!

  • Diane

    I ordered a leopard coat and received it yesterday…. not sure I am in love with it, so I ordered a second one from another vendor and will decide from the two as to keep or send back. Yours is fab!

    • Which one did you go with Diane? I hope one of them worked because you are going to love having a leopard coat in your wardrobe!!

  • Cindy

    I don’t have a leopard coat, but I’ve been thinking about getting one for over a year. Maybe this is the year!!!! I love the one you bought at ASOS. Thanks for sharing options.

    • Cindy, what the what!!!? You of all people need this coat in your life. Your glam! Seriously, you really do need one. Shall I pick one out for you? We could go shopping together–virtually!!

    In your reply to my last comment you mentioned giving away a pair of ruched leggings that you regretted. Well… in my puging to move to the Black Hills I donated a leopard coat that I’d had for about the same number of years that you’ve had the one you’ve shown here. I’m sort of into jackets and coats and since the winters are milder here I knew that I had to let several coats go.
    You look darling in this coat Annie and I also love the sparkly hat. That last close up with just half your face…LOVE IT!! Very artistic and you look lovely!

    • Oh, this breaks my heart! I know that leopard coat of yours was magnificent! Drats. Getting rid of stuff is so hard. I think it’s safe to say this one is a keeper, but then you never know right! I had to purge sooooo much in our move from Beijing to HK. There are other items that pop up in my head.

      Oh, but this one was great! I was said to have gotten rid of my Chewbaca coat. But then, one summer home, I opened up a storage container in our off site storage (what’s that place called?) garage. Well, when I opened that box I was surprised by two lovely items: my Chewy coat and my mom’s cowboy boots! Oh, it was a wonderful day!!

      I hope there is a future, lightweight, leopard coat in your near future!

  • LOVE that flying jacket with the leopard collar….. off for a proper look at H&M (bad lady!! :oP)
    Thank you for linking up to #fakeituntilyoumakeit!

    lovely outfit and lovely coat!, you look so cool and elegant and gorgeous!!
    I’ve been looking for some kind of faux fur coat in second hand shops, but it’s too difficult to find my size!. Now I’m tempted by all those fab coats!

    • Definitely the vintage versions are quite special, but yes, they are very hard to come by no matter the size. It’s as if they’ve all been scooped up. I do hope you find your style. Mine is extra, extra large on me, but I like it that way. It feels like I’m drowning in (faux) fur!

      Here’s to finding your leopard coat!
