Is it just me, or has leopard print never looked better? Whilst any editor will argue that leopard a print coat is a wardrobe staple akin to a leather jacket or a pair of black boots, this OOT jacket style has spent the past few years laying low and out of the spotlight—preparing to pounce once again. 

And this season we’ve all fallen prey to the new-season predator. Influencers, editors, models and designers are all gravitating towards the rich-looking print to elevate their winter looks with the lavish touch that only leopard print can impart.

Bubbling up for a few years now, the runways have become more and more saturated with this timeless print in recent seasons. Whilst some experimented with leopard print shoes or bags, others—to our elation, other went all out, delivering the leopard print coats we’ve been waiting to see. From long-line styles at MSGM and Christian Dior, to cropped fluffy coats spotted at Giorgio Armani, Celine and APC, the runways were rife with the fresh winter trend.

Whilst the leopard print coat is once again trending, the classic style has dipped in and out of favour for more seasons than we can count—meaning that second hand sites are brimming with vintage iterations so it’s well worth a look in if you’re considering a purchase.  If you’re interested in shopping a new-season style, the lavish designs are already available at so many of our favourite brands. Rixo’s cult Milly coat is a firm favourite within the Who What Wear office, but designers such as Dodo Bar Or and Halfboy share classic furry designers that we’re keen to get our hands on. On the high street, French-favourite Sézane and high-street hero Whistles both offer the chic shorter versions that are trending this year.

Influencer Poppy Almond styles Rixo’s Milly Leopard Print Coat (£485). Across the board, designers and shoppers are shaking free of the “clean girl” aesthetics that dominated so long, in favour of something a little more daring. If you too are compelled to wrap up in leopard, read on to discover our edit of the best leopard print coats to shop this season.
