Leopard has become a neutral in most wardrobes, making it easy to wear with just about anything as well as pair it with other patterns. I love mixing it with stripes or a color that is bright. When it comes to a leopard dress, I kept it simple since the pattern in this is making such a statement. I know I am wearing pretty much all the trends right now… with a choker, bell sleeves, OTK boots, and even a lace up collar. And I don’t normally combine that many but everything just seemed to flow. I am so obsessed with this choker, it is so fun and of course, shiny. And you know I can’t pass that up. This choker would be great with a plain outfit too to dress it up, it doesn’t have to be just for something already dressy.
This leopard dress is from Southern Compass Outfitters, a really cute store in Tallahassee. If you are ever heading down that way, it is a must stop. Maybe on the way to the beach this spring? They are known for their southern style with southern brands, but also have super cute things like this dress that wouldn’t necessarily fall into the outdoorsy preppy category. It would be the place to go for that though, as they do carry Vineyard Vines, Hunter, Southern Proper, etc. If you love this dress (which is perfect for any occasion), you can call them and have them send it right to you: (850) 536-6622). In the fall they host happy hour tailgates for fall football!
