As a recent Florida-via-California transplant now thrown into the world of Upper East Side society, Gossip Girl’s Charlie (Kaylee DeFer) has had a pretty hit or miss fashion sense so far.

Luckily, Kaylee’s eye for style in real life has been pretty on point — especially in the case of the leopard-spotted jacket she wore to the opening of Habit Denim NYC.

Animal prints have a knack for being pretty dramatic, especially on a coat, but Kaylee expertly dials it down with a casual sweater, jeans, and boots. Being able to wear large animal print casually as easily as you can formally makes a leopard coat like Kaylee’s worth every penny, so we included one in our outfit recreation below that’s under $100.

You’ll be doing a spot-on impression of Kaylee’s style without even having to blow your budget!
