Leopard is one of the strongest trends and adding the more autumn print to a lighter weight dress is the perfect solution to get you through August and all the way into early winter. Sure, leopard can be tricky to wear, you don’t want to look like the crazy cat lady with a heavy-hand. But you do want to look chic and modern, and yet still very classic.
How to wear a leopard dress to transition into fall:
- No matter what, keep hair and make-up understated to not overpower the bold print.
- An open-toe boot or ankle boot with add a fall touch and still be light enough for late summer to early fall.
- Once it gets a bit chilly, top off the dress with a black leather jacket… another huge trend.
- Need a more office look? Top the dress with a classic trench coat and wear black pumps... more on-trend and classic styles.
