Pinterest Mondays: Crisp White & Leopard

1. Alexander Wang Sleeveless Dress ($416) // 2. Guardaroba Cardigan ($93) // 3. Ivanka Trump Fabianly Pump ($125) // 4. Aldo Migliarino Satchel ($60) // 5. Stella & Dot Renegade Bracelet ($59), Bezel Set Swarovski Earrings ($32), Gorjana Arc Ring ($24)

Truthfully, Camilla Alves could wear anything and look amazing, but this outfit is fantastic.  The leopard shoes and crisp white dress bring just the right mix of spring and fall fashion together for chilly April days.

One. A sleeveless white dress is a great layering piece for spring and summer.  This Alexander Wang dress is a great piece, but a bit pricey.  I also found this Calvin Klein sleeveless sheath and this under-$100 Tahari jacquard sheath.

Petite?  Try this Ann Taylor cotton sateen sheath (also in tall, misses).  Plus-size?  This DKNY Colorblock sheath in shades of white is very cool.

Two. A simple tan cardigan never looked so good.  If you’re looking for something cheaper, this Pendleton Balmy cardi has a stylishly slouchy look for under-$25.

Three. I chose these pumps because I think they have just the right amount of leopard for all seasons.  If you prefer a traditional leopard pump, these Calvin Klein Dolly pumps have a muted palette and these Ivanka Trump Sophia pumps have a more traditional color scheme.

Four. This cognac satchel is a great buy for under-$100.  I love the hardware.  This Steve Madden tote is also lovely, but if you want something with less hardware, try this Sole Society laser cut tote.

Five. These Renegade bracelets are my favorite.  You can buy them in both tones and layer them for a chic, simple look.  You can also layer these chain bracelets from Stella & Dot.  And I adore these bezel set studs from Overstock.com (a great buy).

    Hmm. I usually put my leopard print shoes away when Spring finally shows up, but I think this looks fantastic! I don’t know why I don’t wear leopard in warm weather months; I don’t think there is a “rule” about it, and I think those rules are mostly crap anyway.

    I love this look. Unfortunately I’m so pale that the white and tan would wash me out completely.

      I’m super pale and look great in white. Makes me look tanner by comparison (though this combo probably wouldn’t work, maybe with a darker sweater, brown flatters my hair and eyes).

      I am also very pale, but I look good in white. I don’t think white washes out pale people. I think dark colors can be a startling contrast with my skin, but white actually looks good.

    This post could not have been more perfectly timed! I’ve been trying to figure out how to style the white sheath I’m wearing to my civil wedding ceremony next week. This is a great start 🙂 Thanks!

    Love this look, Belle! Did you find any leopard flats in your shoe search? I’ve been looking for the past month or so, but haven’t found anything that is nice enough to compare to heels.

    Thanks posting this! It inspired me to pick up a tan cardi & was overjoyed when I realised it meant I can now wear my fav pink dresses to the office.
