How to Wear a Leopard Print Coat | With Jeans and a Baseball Cap

Leopard print coat with baseball cap
I think this is the easiest winter dressing gets for me: a statement coat, jeans and a hat. My Zara two-tone leopard and black coat is on its third winter and I don't love it any less than I did when I bought it. I remember I had the idea of wearing a plain black baseball cap with it last winter but never got round to it - I like a good contrast in an outfit so the tomboy style of a cap with a full-on lady coat has always appealed to me. (Why does adding the word "lady" before any other word always make it sound a bit dodgy, or is it just me?!) You don't get much more of a contradiction than a hat worn by American sportsmen worn with a style of coat I still associate with Bette Lynch of Coronation Street ;)

Although I've paired my leopard with blue denim and black (i.e. dark neutrals), I do love pairing it with winter brights as well. Do you consider leopard a neutral (and wear it as such)? Let me know in the comments...!

  1. Absolutely consider leopard as neutral, I love pairing it with fancy colors and textures :D
    Adore the baseball cap, this is one of those things I would think would never work, but it actually looks amazing ^^

  2. Another vote for leopard as a neutral. Unfortunately I went through a phase many years ago where I went a bit overboard with it and now I avoid it...

  9. I think leopard print is definitely going to be around for some time, it's so popular this year again. The coat is fantastic, I would wear it with black, denin, or camel

    1. Camel would definitely give it a softer look, Laurie - you're right! Thank you x

  10. Great styling. I love the tension between cap and coat and the emphasis on the coat. The rest of the outfit lets the coat take the stage. Well done. A beautiful combination.
