A black and white leopard dress is a refreshing take on the typical brown and black leopard printed dress, plus it’s ideal for summer wear. The crispness of the black and white leopard color combo pops – especially in warm weather – which will make your job easier when finishing off the look. For a ready-to-go cocktail party outfit this summer, stick to the black and white hue – a huge spring/summer 2013 trend – and simply slip on a pair of black or white heels with your black and white leopard dress. Every gal has a sophisticated pair of heels like this! Click here to see how to wear black and white this season. For a summer afternoon outfit, you can bring in a little color by layering with a silk colored blazer and/or colored purse. Try not to bring in other colored prints. Rather, stick to solid colored pieces so that you keep the look fresh.
Below, I’ve styled the Joie “Weaver” silk shift dress in caviar (shop here) for a lunch date by the pool. For this occasion, I layered with the Diane von Furstenberg “Victor” open crepe jacket in pink rose (shop here). I accessorized with white chunky sandal heels by Escada, a pink ombre Chanel 2.5 tote, Chan Luu “Petite Rose Alabaster Crystal Stone” wrap bracelet (shop here), vintage Chanel earrings, and a pop of blue on my Claw nails.
