A few years ago I swooned over a faux fur leopard jacket that I saw on the Nordstrom website.  I ordered it and daydreamed about it  for the next ten days (I went to Disney World with my grandkids) The flight home felt like Christmas Eve... that jacket would be waiting. It was, but to my horror I looked like an NFL linebacker in it. It was promptly returned.

What I had to admit to myself was that my body type just couldn't handle all that bulk. If you are willowy or so full of "fun" that you can pull it off, I say ... GO FOR IT!  As much as I love leopard, and I do, I lean toward well tailored pieces or great assessories. I'm still looking for the perfect leopard coat.
