If I lived in a colder climate, a leopard coat would be a no-brainer for my closet. But as a Floridian, the occasions to wear one are few and far between! There will be the occasional nights when temperatures dip low enough, and there may be opportunities to wear one while traveling. For example, I've thought about bringing one to Europe for the northern leg of our trip, to wear with flats as pictured. I'm sure some would recommend sticking to basic colors if you don't have much use for coats, but "go big or go home" and the idea that you might as well wear a fun coat the few times you need one, also makes sense to me, too. Which type of coat would you choose?
