Can you wear a leopard top and an olive jacket together? That's the question behind today's Jessica Hart re-creation. Somehow she is pulling it off, but In my attempt I felt a bit like a zookeeper, despite the feminine additions of cap toe heels and a fancy necklace. I wore the same leopard shirt on Daytime yesterday with a camel pencil skirt and leather-sleeve trench. (Sorry the picture is so small - I attempted to do outfit photos but the lighting came out really yellow.)  A reader requested a cheaper version of this top, so see my top picks under $50 below! Would you wear leopard + olive jacket together? How would you make it work?

Top: C. Wonder c/o (similar under $50 below)
