Leopard print coat

Yes I know Bet Lynch etc etc But I want one.

Now my online searching has narrowed it down to this zara one or this oasis one

Now the zara one is a great shape for me but its not fur - will that make it look strange?

I like the look of the oasis one but I don't know - perhaps its just too cheap looking.

So has anyone seen any amazing leopard print coats on their travels or have you seen the zara or oasis ones in the flesh?

I like the look of this one

Not seen either on quick look like Oasis better.

JuliaFlyte Tue 25-Sep-12 20:42:29

I have also had my eye on this one

Oh that Biba one looks promising.

I'm going proper shopping on Friday so will add HOF to my list.

Mir - I did like the oasis one when I saw it in the press but on site it just looks not so good. But that could be their photography/styling.

How did I know this was going to be your thread?!!grin The only one I like is the Zara coat.

Yes I'm leaning towards the zara - think I like the fact its not fur so its not quite so ummm brassy looking.

You don't like the jaime one at whistles? Not fitted enough?

I think you have to be careful with collarless - it always looks frumpy on me. If you have big norks it's a no from me to the Zara one.

And I'm not a fan of twee Peter Pan collars

25% off at HoF from this evening.

I like the Zara one.

Are you sure you're after a coat not a jacket?

MrsCampbellBlack Wed 26-Sep-12 11:17:52

Oh I like collar-less - have a couple of zara coats in very similar style and don't think they're frumpy.

I also like peter pan collars so can deduce that Hoop and I are style opposites wink

Oh the malene one is just gorgeous but too much £££.

Did see one in new look but lordy - it was pure Bet with a dash of Liz MacDonald too.

QueenBeebread Wed 26-Sep-12 11:56:04

Actually if I were choosing a leopard jacket with pots of cash and I could get over the fur thing, it'd be this one.


CaroleService Wed 26-Sep-12 11:58:28

I think the fact that the Zara one is not faux fur will make it classier, actually.

MrsCampbellBlack Wed 26-Sep-12 12:01:29

Oh Queen - I love Marant - if I had £££ I'd buy loads of it.

Carole - I think you're right.

Faustina - I think the whistles one is too shapeless for me but I love the Elise.

justasecond Wed 26-Sep-12 12:12:25

Definately the Zara one. I saw it in the flesh yesterday and it is very nice, quite understated actually. Agree with Carole too.

Miu Miu have a gorgeous one ....
