Thank goodness, then, for the gods of Christmas retail who have taken a moment between splaying pencil skirts with sequins and titivating velvet frocks with heavy-duty diamante embellishment to offer up the yuletide coat of our collective dreams. Leopard print and crafted from just the right breed of faux fur, a really wild overcoat is the only way to go this winter..

zaraleopardprint.jpgEndorsed by a host of high-profile party girls — see Kate Moss, who rarely steps out after dark without her favourite LPC slung over her arm, and Alexa Chung, who loves the style so much she placed it at the centre of her latest campaign with Longchamp — the coat is a winner with those who like to stand out from the navy-blue masses. It’s for this reason that it’s currently waiting to be bought from high-street retailers all over the city.

Among the best on offer is a stiff- collared Zara style, yours for a bargain £69.99. Topshop also offers an affordable take on the trend with a tiger-effect version which is just £89. The joy of LPC, particularly during such times of social madness, is that it works wonders on a unremarkable evening evening dresses or jumpsuit, so opt for one on the days you feel your outfit might miss the mark.

Like holly and ivy or mistletoe and wine, leopard print deserves to be life partners with red lipstick, so pile on the colour when you’re stepping out in yours.

But life needs not be all late nights and little black dresses — for those who wish to get on board with this coat style, leopard print looks pretty ace with denim too. For a chic winter’s day look, try teaming a cropped faux fur style with a pair of wide-leg sawn-off jeans and a fine-knit roll neck. Animal magnetism is yours.
