We asked Rachel, interior decorator and long-time friend, to share her tips for easily working this rad leopard coat into both her day and night looks. See how she makes styling this coat for both weekend coffee and dinner party host a cinch!

This coat is one of my favorite purchases this winter. It’s versatile, the leopard pattern is awesome (it's hard to find a spot-on pattern like this, no pun intended), and the fit is so well-tailored that I immediately feel put-together when I layer it over whatever I’m wearing.
It's a surprisingly easy layering piece to take my go-to-comfort outfit (turtleneck + boyfriend jeans + sneakers) to the next level.

I love mixing patterns, and leopard is almost like a neutral. I sometimes forget how bold it is. I find this is also true in decorating: leopard can be the focal point of a room, it can be a neutral accent, or it can really wow when layered with other bold patterns.
Heading out to dinner, I paired it with a delicate floral dress, a fun earring, and velvet booties for some funk.
