Date night, going to work, hanging out with friends—honestly, how is someone supposed to keep up with outfits for each of these occasions and not be completely poor? With new trends constantly emerging, it’s tough to resist the urge to blow all the money in my bank account on more clothes. One trend I’m very into this summer is the leopard print. I’ve been seeing a lot of leopard print dresses, sets, and bathing suits everywhere. The comeback of the leopard print trend has me so thrilled—maybe because it releases my inner New Jersey housewife who’s just looking for a table to flip at a dinner party. IDK.
Last month, supermodel Bella Hadid celebrated her sister Gigi’s 23rd birthday. Bella wore a sheer leopard print dress that I fell in love with, so you know what I did: found a cheaper version. Then, I created three different looks with the same dress to show you how to style it in different ways for different occasions. The best part: this Topshop dress is only $50.
My first look is a date night look: simple with heels and a clutch. To be clear, I wouldn’t be rushing into a first date in this outfit (that may scare him away), but this is a great fifth dinner date outfit. Although, I’ve never made it to a fifth date, so let me know how that goes.
This is a Saturday daytime look with the girls. Three Olives Rosé? I think that’s a definite yes. I threw on my Shop Betches Spaghetti tee underneath the dress and threw on some sneakers and a pair of gold hoops. I prefer to drink in sneakers because, well obviously, safety first.
Day To Night
This is a day-to-night look. Sometimes you have after-work drinks that may lead to a late dinner—or just more drinks, really. Putting on a white button-down can class up any look, even if it is under a Snooki-inspired slip dress. And to match my button-down, I put on white boots, because I’m still in love with this shoe trend. Sue me.
