Animal Print Coats Are Back Big Time This Autumn

If you’re wondering how to refresh your Fall 2018 outerwear wardrobe without taking the plunge into a down coat or a puffer parka right away, you’re in luck. After all, the early weeks of autumn mean that the perfect brisk breeze is here, and it’s time to layer accordingly without any unnecessary bulk or extra layers. Fortunately, the autumn runways are pointing toward animal print coats as a must-have item for your cool weather wardrobe. For anyone wondering how to steal this trend, take a look at the season’s catwalks and gather your inspiration today.

Victoria Beckham

If you want to jump right into the trend, try gathering your sartorial cues from the VB runway. A long, leopard printed trench coat with a waist-defining belt can easily define your proportions and enhance your curves. Meanwhile, the sharp collar and the elegant, ladylike silhouette seen here help to balance out the crazy, bold print on display.

Tom Ford

Meanwhile, designer Tom Ford brought the trend to an entirely new level in the form of a furry, brown and pink cheetah print topper. Ford styled the long coat with a simple black T-shirt and a pair of glittery, high-waisted metallic leggings, for the ultimate hint of cool.

Proenza Schouler

At Proenza Schouler, tiger stripes on a sleek, tailored coat were the order of the day. We are liking this printed statement coat, which instantly makes an impression with its bold striped motif and orange and black tones. The simple dark outfit worn underneath helps to bring it to life, and complete this autumn-ready outfit.
