Another day, another completely covetable Kate Moss outfit: the supermodel was super-smiley while out and about in London today, wearing what we're pretty sure is one of her best laid-back looks to date. Kate stepped out in an all-black ensemble, which she topped with a leopard-print peacoat and a handful of Winter-perfect accessories. What's worth noting here is how totally easy Kate's look is to copy for yourself, considering that she sticks to just a few key pieces — a pair of black skinnies, a chunky knit turtleneck, ankle-grazing flat boots, and a bohemian-chic wide-brimmed wool hat. The street-style maven finished her look with a sleek black Saint Laurent duffle bag, and again sent us spiraling into a bottomless pit of "why can't I be her?"

At this point, leopard print has become a mainstay in our wardrobes, but that doesn't mean it can't get a bit of a makeover with the arrival of a new season. In light of Summer weather, we're embracing leopard print with a breezier tilt — just the way this styled celebrity trio is wearing it. In cool printed pants Beyoncé gives the exotic print a decidedly easy feel, while Ashley Madekwe injects her seasonal ensemble with an animal-printed accent piece via her Mulberry bag; and Krysten Ritter shows us just how sweet the pattern can feel on a '90s-style babydoll frock that's perfect for everyday. In any case, the key is relaxed silhouettes and lighter fabrics that deliver a cool-girl punch of print without overpowering your look. Loving the look?

Fall's all about rich layers and textures via cozy sweaters, fuzzy jackets, and — our favorite — leopard prints. We love the idea of complementing all of our seasonal ensembles with a jolt of something fierce, so what better way to do that than with leopard-print footwear? From the coolest pair of leopard-print loafers to sleek booties, we scoured the web for the best pairs for you to wear this Fall. See below for how to wear them, and then click the slideshow to shop our 15 favorite pairs at every price point.
- Pair leopard-print booties with black pants and a leather jacket for an edgy ensemble.
- Contrast your feline patterns with a floral dress-up top for the perfect balance of sweet and sexy. Designer Rebecca Taylor told us it's one of her favorite combinations!.
- We love the idea of wearing a slim black sheath with a blazer and high-heel, leopard-print pumps for a sleek, work-appropriate outfit.
The looks might be different, but Ashlee Simpson, Lauren Conrad, and Rebecca Romijn all draw from the same, simple styling trick: amp up the chic factor with a touch of leopard print. Ashlee lets it pop against her all-black ensemble, Lauren mixes nautical stripes and leopard flats, and Rebecca carries an effortlessly cool Hung On U Pony Bag for a subtly sexy match with leather pants and a sweet cream blouse. Leopard print is sexy but versatile: just a little bit of it pairs well with your cocktail looks or dressed-down basics for every day. To make it work, just keep your doses in check and these tips in mind. Then shop our editors' picks to get the look.
- Keep your wild print appropriate for daytime by adding it on a casual tote or a pair of this season's best oxfords, loafers, or ballet flats.
- Since the print is already a standout, save the statement shoes like platforms and stilettos for your nights out.
- Feel free to add leopard print to your other prints, like stripes, polka dots, even florals, just remember to use your pop of leopard sparingly, so it doesn't compete with your other patterns.
We love the way leopard print can turn up the intensity of our look, no matter the season. Case in point: Nicky Hilton's casual dinner look is infinitely cooler, thanks to her leopard-patterned denim, which, incidentally, looked pretty familiar to us. Turns out, it's the same Current/Elliott pair ($198) we pulled as a Fab favorite on Piperlime. Craving the same cool? Swap out your standard blues and shop them now to channel Nicky's funky-chic vibe.
I love to see a girl who knows what she likes and sticks with it no matter what. In the case of Fab reader frillsandruffles, it's leopard print — and we can't really blame her. Her look is polished and ladylike, with just the right amount of sass, and it's super easy to re-create. Start with a brown pleated skirt ($99), tuck in a slouchy white tank, and add a cozy leopard-print cardigan ($78). Let the cute cardi stand out by going light on the accessories — try a pair of peep-toe ankle booties ($64), and get a pop of color with a red beaded necklace and art deco-inspired cocktail ring. Voilà: fierce and fabulous!
Cat Deeley donned a sexy one-shoulder dress to a very fashionable dinner that included Rachel Zoe, Sofia Vergara, and other notable women in TV. Cat's purple frock has a California ease about it, and she added some glamour with a Jimmy Choo leopard-print clutch ($51). Fab tip: add a cream blazer ($238) for an extra dose of warmth and sophistication. Click my picks to get this cocktail-ready outfit now.
