We're seeing it everywhere. From the runways to the covers and pages of the fashion magazines, leopard has got to be one of the biggest trends for fall and winter 2010. Though animal prints and fur are always popular this time of year, they're certainly raising their profile now. I'm even starting to see it transcend the trends and become recognized for what it really is...both a staple and a classic.
My inspiration almost always comes from the past, including women who wore it best like
Brigitte Bardot (above) and Anne Bancroft (below).
I just added this incredible 1960s leopard faux fur coat into the GlamAmor collection. It's an amazing coat because the belt is completely optional and can be removed when you prefer the look without one. Though I would call it a size medium, it somehow seems to fit anyone who puts it on whether they're small, medium, or large. Not yet available in the Store--I've been so busy with events, I haven't had time to do a shoot yet!--so if you're interested, just call or send me an email and I can give you more details.
If a coat is too much for you, try an accessory that you love in leopard. I have a favorite pair of Steve Madden leopard platform pumps that jazz up many of my classic and monochromatic outfits.
