a leopard dress transitions from summer to fall

leopard dress

a leopard dress transitions from summer to fall with ease. and that’s just what today’s post is all about. this past month i partnered with JCPenney on Instagram to show just how easy it is for a leopard dress to span the seasons. and who doesn’t love a little animal print in their lives? or maybe a lot as leopard print remains a perennial favorite.

this leopard dress from Evan Picone has 3/4 sleeves and a wrap front, making it a perfect choice for work. or maybe lunch with the girls. for summer i styled this dress with a pair of faux suede sandals with a block heel. eleven colors are available, including leopard.  black sandals would have been a safe bet, but i choose plum sandals to bring subtle contrast to the leopard dress.

now that fall is knocking on our door it’s time to add a black blazer to this leopard dress. see how easy it is to add a classic wardrobe staple to an outfit? the blazer adds spit and polish to this ootd.

leopard dress & black blazer

this black blazer from JCPenney has 3/4 ruched sleeves that are on trend this season. it also has a flat front, which makes it easy to slip on over a dress or jeans.

black peep toe pumps

does anyone remember peep-toe pumps? these iconic shoes have transitioned in and out of style since the 1940s. this pair has a 1/2″ platform shoe height with an overall 3 1/4″ heel height. the addition of the platform makes the shoe comfy to wear, but i recommend you size up a half size.

    I love leopard & believe it to be a perfect neutral that spans the seasons.

    I also appreciate how much I believe our style sense matches! I think of it as traditional w/ a twist:). Keep up the great work!

    Nice easy sophisticated look. A black blazer goes from casual to chic in a second, depending on what you pair it with. Your hair is great short like this. Seems like I finally got all my warm weather clothes in line and it’s time to switch out the colder weather things. I can ease into them, though, as it will still be warm here for a while.

  10. Hi Beth,
    I really enjoy your blogs. I am a 72 year old grandma who wears a size 2x-3x. I can see that you are far from being a plus size. Would it be possible for you to occasionally indicate where we could buy some similar outfits in plus sizes? I don’t know if you have had this request before, so, I am making it for all us plus size gals who like to dress fabulously, but, not gaudily!

    Beth, thank you for the inspiration! I purchased this dress in the print and navy. Such a lovely, flattering dress. Sometimes I am a bit uncomfortable in a wrap because they can be difficult to keep together. This one is perfect and the price is great.

    Great look. I was checking their site today and could not ascertain if they ship to Australia. Might I be so bold to ask you if you know if they ship overseas.
