While the world has its attention focused on New York City’s newest mayor Bill de Blasio and the rest of the de Blasio household, it’s daughter Chiara de Blasio who’s poised to become the sartorial star of the family.

At Wednesday’s mayoral inauguration ceremony, Chiara nabbed her fair share of attention wearing a Nanette Lepore ‘Destination’ leather trimmed leopard print coat ($748).

Statement coats are a great way to make a strong fashion statement during the colder months of the year, when practicality becomes equally as important as style.

Kate Upton showed us what kind of impact the right coat can have on an ensemble when she wore an apple red Oscar de la Renta number to a taping of Extra, and we see the same kind of outfit transforming impact with Chiara’s leopard outerwear.

With a Teen Vogue feature under her belt that certifies her impending ‘It Girl’ status, Chiara de Blasio is a definite must add to your style watch radar.
