It seems that one of this season's hottest takes on outerwear comes in the form of lovely leopard print coats. Easily paired with a classic all-black ensemble, leopard print coats are definitely for the girls that want to make a statement with their cool weather attire. This is why fashion-forward celebs like Alexa Chung and Mary-Kate Olsen have been seen out and about in the cozy trend.

Traditionally a symbol of luxury, sexiness and glamour, the leopard print coat is also popular because of its surprising versatility. It works well with casual ensembles for a day of shopping, like Nicky's coat, but also packs enough glamour for a special night out, complete with cat-eye makeup like Kate Moss.

Here are some current retail leopard print coats (all faux fur, of course):

Personally, I'm not a huge fan of the leopard print coats--something about them reminds me of their extravagant, real fur counterparts that carry a snobbier, "luxury is only for the rich" sort of feel.  But, I must admit, I think Kate Moss looks absolutely envious in her coat, so this is one of those trends I'm a bit on the fence about.

What do you think? Can normal college girls pull of the luxury of this coat--and will you be partaking in the trend? Let me know what you think!
