Known for her extraordinary vocal capabilities and her always on-point fashion choices, Adele caught everyone's attention this past weekend when she wore a leopard-print trench coat on date night.

The 33-year-old singer was out to dinner at Italian restaurant Giorgio Baldi in Santa Monica with boyfriend Rich Paul, whom she's been "holding back" talking about.

Leopard print, is one of the biggest fashion trends for 2022, so it's time to invest. This brown and black leopard-print coat is made in Italy from cotton-blend velvet.

Adele paired her best winter coat—by Italian fashion label Etro—with a pair of flared black leather pants, similar gloves, pointed black suede heels, a black Balenciaga Hourglass mini bag and, of course, a dark mask. No wonder the leopard coat caught everyone's eye.

But if Etro's dreamy design is a little on the pricey side there are plenty for affordable versions on the high street right now.

R13's coat takes elements from traditional smoking jackets, like the quilted shawl collar and Brandenburg fastenings. It's made from cotton-flannel printed with leopard spots and washed for a soft handle.

This isn’t the first time that Adele’s outwear choices have garnered attention. Back in July 2021, also on a date with Rich, this time at an NBA final game between the Milwaukee Bucks and the Phoenix Suns at Footprint Center in Phoenix Arizona, the Grammy award-winning artist wore a floor-length black coat with different-colored patches and tortoiseshell buttons.

Just a few weeks ago, again at an NBA game with her boyfriend (this time at the Arena in Los Angeles to watch the LA Lakers battle it out with the Atlanta Hawks), she sported an almost-floor-length black coat with gold buttons on the cuffs over black joggers and a pair of Jordan 1 Retro High Twists.

In April of last year, on the other hand, she attended actor Daniel Kaluuya's Oscars after-party wearing a satin chartreuse robe by LAPOINTE boasting a boa trim over a black dress.

There’s just something about coats… right, Adele?
