I love a good animal print. I love a good leopard print even more. I really love a good furry jacket, and I really, really love a good quality FAUX fur jacket. (It means it looks and feels real, but is afforadable and doesn't make anyone next to you on the train cringe...) So as the temperature starts to dip and we start considering our outerwear as important factors in our outfits, every woman needs one great faux fur, leopard-print, 3/4-length sleeve jacket.
This one from DKNY is pretty much perfect. It has all the requirements I listed above...and the 3/4 sleeves are because when you have a strong, all-over print like leopard, it's nice to show some skin or a sleeve peeking out so you aren't overwhelmed by the pattern. This one has 1960's-inspired styling without looking costume-y, and the cropped silhouette nips in at your natural waist, making it super flattering all-around. Wear it with flared jeans, a long-sleeved fitted sweater, and boots on the weekend. Wear it over a sheath dress, black tights and brightly colored stilettos to the office. Or wear it with shiny leggings, a sexy draped tank, a tiny embellished clutch, and your highest peep-toe platforms for a night on the town. And because leopard-print is almost its own neutral, it really goes with almost everything in your wardrobe...even other prints!
