How To Wear A Leopard Dress to Work
Wearing prints in the workplace can be one of the most difficult things - and leopard print is no exception to this fact. Recently I picked up this super cute Leopard print dress from Target for $25 and really wanted to wear it to work. So I did what every other 25 year old would do - I sat down at my computer and googled "Can I wear leopard print to work?" Now this may vary by office or building, but my office is pretty casual when it comes to a dress code. Other offices in the building have a pretty strict dress code, but since we don't meet clients face-to-face its not really necessary when we will be sitting on a computer all day making calls.
Either way, to the left is the dress that I wore. Its a super cute blousey dress that I bought with a friend on a recent Basic Bitch Sunday trip.
Its sleeveless, has a keyhole front, is short, and has a defined waist. To make this work appropriate I accessorized with a few simple items that I already had in my closet: a black belt, cardigan, flats, cute hair bow.
The thin black belt was a staple for me. It was leather and had a tarnished bronze-gold buckle and went perfectly with the dress. I decided to wear it under the cardigan just in case I went out after work.
Black cardigan - how can you go wrong? This one had short sleeves (because it's hot) but was light and comfortable enough to wear all day.
I paired the outfit with Simply Vera Tuxedo Flats in black. I love these shoes and they have a giant black bow on them. They bring a little femininity into an outfit while keeping it comfortable. I also would of worn a pair of black gladiator sandals or some thick black strap wedges if going a little more casual or bringing the dress to a more nighttime look.
For my hair I kept it simple (and Jersey Shore), I pulled a Snookie and pulled just the front half of my hair back and pinned it in place giving myself a little bump. I then pinned a black bow from F21 and was all done!

I kept the makeup pretty simple for this. Just an elf BB cream with some seriously winged liner under my glasses. I kept the lips neutral with Milani Pretty Natural lipstick and Nude Lip liner. I popped a little blush on my cheeks and that was it!
