I’m not going to lie, it’s my first winter back in NYC and I’m already soooo over the cold! I feel like I’ve been wearing the same black winter coat, jeans and boots for weeks! The other day I decided it was time to add some pizzaz back into my winter wardrobe, so I pulled out my favorite leopard coat from last season. It completely turned my day around. Sounds dramatic, but you’d be amazed at what a fabulous coat can do for your spirit!!!
The Perfect Leopard Coat
Why do I think *this* particular coat is the perfect leopard coat? I’ve owned several leopard print coats in the past, but I just can’t get enough of this one. First of all I love the slim cut, it’s not too bulky so you can wear it throughout the fall and spring, its warm and made of a super soft material, AND the leopard print is ultra classic so it doesn’t look cheap. Often times leopard print can look CHEAP. Not this one! It’s a best seller for a reason! FYI I do recommend sizing down as it does run about a size big. PS if you live in a warm weather place – definitely look into the duster version. PPS I also love this one!
Faux Leather Leggings
I paired my coat with these BOMB faux leather leggings. Yes I just used the word BOMB because they’re just that good lol! I’ve been on the hunt for a good faux leather legging for years and these ones look 100% REAL and expensive. They feel soooo luxurious, and have a side zipper that you can barely see. They don’t stretch out, are a medium waist cut, come in short, regular or tall, and run true to size (I’m wearing a size 2 here.) PLUS they’re under $100!
Sleek Black Booties
I’ve worked with Sarah Flint in the past and her shoes really are as comfy as people say they are. They sent me these black booties from their fall/winter collection and I truly love them. I found them to run about a 1/2 size big, so I recommend going down a 1/2 to a full size. I love that the heel is high enough to be able to wear them to a formal dinner, but I can also easily and comfortably walk miles around the city in them. The gold zippers on either side are a really elegant touch!
