Do leopard-print coats ever go out of fashion? We’d argue that they never do. Thanks to the likes of modern muses Kate Moss and Alexa Chung, this particular coat or jacket is always a great way to make an outfit suddenly more fabulous. So what do you need to know about 2020’s version of leopard-print outerwear?
A couple of years ago, we were all after Victoria Beckham‘s new twist on the look. She gave it a whole new feel with her wide lapel and belted version. It was less about the oversize faux-fur look and more about making the coat super elegant.
However, in 2020, there is a return to the classic faux-fur look, with the likes of Gucci producing some much-needed fabulousness with its over-the-top cuffed coat. Then there’s a sleek silk-twill iteration from Ganni and Saint Laurent’s fringe version, which are both far too chic to ignore. And if you’re looking for something a little lighter and more autumn-like? Well, there are leopard-print cropped jackets from various designers and high streets.
Whether you’ll be digging your own leopard prints out of storage or shopping for a fresh spin on fashion’s most enduring trend, one thing’s for sure: This year, we’ve been covered in animal prints, and that’s set to continue. Keep scrolling to shop the leopard-print coats you need to see this season—from faux fur to printed denim jackets.
