The argument for animal prints as a neutral can be hard to swallow until you spot an easy example of someone wearing spots as they would a basic gray tee or black cashmere sweater. Lea Michele is the latest to join the ranks of celebs who get it, topping off her dark skinnies and motorcycle boots with a black-and-white leopard AllSaints sweatshirt that feels, yep, understated. The print adds a dose of something extra to a would-be combo of basics.

Once we pried our eyes away from her top, we zeroed in on her structured black tote. Classic but purposeful, it's not any old shapeless shopper. We cheered to learn it's from Coach, though it won't be up for purchase until the middle of the month. Until then, appease yourself with the range we found below, and try wearing it with some chic spots, just like Lea.
