Y'all, it is COLD today. And I'm in the South! I can only imagine how it must feel up North right now. It's easy to get into frump mode when the temps drop, donning oversized Cosby sweaters, puffy jackets and boots with the furrrrrr. But don't let Jack Frost get his grubby little hands on you. Let's take a look at a super chic yet classic option for your winter outerwear this year, the leopard print coat.

The versatile leopard print coat easily leans from dressy to casual with the change into boyfriend jeans or a pencil skirt. Formerly associated with the bombshell look, leopard has gradually become more of a neutral in this day and age. Since the fashion world is all about mixing prints, feel free to wear it with stripes, polka dots and even florals!
But the age old question is, do you save or do you splurge?
If you're in the market for a new jacket and you want to spend spend SPEND, then opt for the choice on the left. This By Malene Birger coat from Shopbop rings up at a whopping $795! There's not doubt you'll get tons of wear out of it this year. But if you're not in the market for an animalistic splurge, then the ASOS jacket on the right will make your bank account happy with a price tag of only $86. In my case, I think I'll save the $700 for a rainy day...or put it toward a bathroom renovation.
How do you feel about leopard, specifically cut as a coat? Would you save or spend?
