If you've got a leopard coat in your closet but are sick of pairing it with the safe all-black ensemble,let these next two looks inspire you to try something different tomorrow.

Peter Som

This first look,from Peter Som's Pre-Fall collection,puts a sophisticated spin on the leopard coat,pairing it with a classic white button down and tuxedo stripe pants.I love the black and white combo,but the stripe on the pants has me thinking the same white shirt would work just as well with a a pair of skinny bright pants or khakis as well.

The next look,from Yigal Azrouel's Pre-Fall collection,pairs a textured dress with this shorter,fur coat.The mix of textures works here for two reasons: both pieces are in the same color family,and the dress is a solid so it doesn't overwhelm or clash with the coat.
