Every year or so designers send models out onto the runway wearing their latest animal print collections, claiming it’s the next hottest fashion. I think by now we can all agree animal print clothing, especially leopard, is a timeless trend that is here to stay. It was actually fashion icon Jackie Kennedy who was originally responsible for making the leopard coat one of the most coveted and copied styles of the 1960s. Unfortunately it nearly caused the extinction of the leopard species.
Luckily there are fabulous faux leopard fur coats available so one can still get that classic chic look without harming any innocent animals. Below is an authentic vintage faux leopard fur coat from the 60s that was just listed on my website. Because a leopard print coat is such a statement piece, it looks best worn with basic black pants and top or a fitted pencil skirt or dress. Red clothing is also a stunning complement to leopard.
And from left to right here are photos of celebrities, Alexa Chung, Nicky Hilton and Kate Moss looking spot on in leopard!
