Leopard prints seems to be the first trend to emerge this fall. Leopard prints has always been a widely debated style issue: tacky and cheap, or stylish and cool? Leopard prints is a seriously hard trend to wear so be very careful. First, as seen on the runway:

Prada showed two slightly different subtle leopard printed coats -one form-fitting, the other slightly like a cocoon shape.

Alessandro Dell'Acqua on the other hand, showed two different sharp-looking leopard printed coats -one with the 60s feel, and the other is a sophisticated long coat.

Apart from coats, whole leopard printed dresses were also seen. The red Louis Vuitton dress is sort of casual and cute. The Roberto Cavalli dress is wild and very hard to pull off, (although the fur jacket and dress combination does looks very luxurious on the model.)

Louis Vuitton showed two other excellent ways to pull off the leopard prints without going overboard: just show bits of it! Learn from the runway, show just the sleeves or wear a scarf.

Kate Moss looks AMAZING in the leopard dress. I really hated the complete leopard look until I saw these photos of Kate. She's wearing a leopard printed dress and shoes, and still looks soo glam and stylish.

Mischa Barton also recently wore leopard dresses, but she wore it in a more casual style. She made the leopard look more youthful by wearing the dresses with solid-coloured clothes, like the cream cropped jacket on top and black turtleneck underneath.

Wear leopard printed clothes only if you are an excellent stylist and you can pull it off stylishly.
