I see leopard, others see cheetah; regardless of how you determine this print, you should consider it an ‘ultimate must-have’ for your Fall wardrobe. For starters, this print acts as both a neutral and a stand-alone detail so the versatility really comes into play when pairing up with accessories. Second, a dress that effortlessly goes from the office to happy hour is another reason to get excited. Banana Republic has an amazing assortment of dresses for such the occasion – which happens to be one of the harder one’s to plan an outfit for, at least for me..
Sleeve detail is still prominent for this new season, so take advantage! I love how the bell sleeves of this dress gives it’s simple silhouette more angles to work with – which is great for someone like me who isn’t very curvy at all. Also note the metallic shimmer that beams when the sun hits the print just right, another added bonus to make this day-to-night piece worth the closet adoption.
While the weather remains somewhat warm, ankle strap heels continue to be my footwear of choice – when dressing up of course, you know my heart forever belongs to my sneaker collection… Nonetheless it’s also a great time to buy spring/summer sandals as many of them are on sale! Although this particular (old) pair worn above is adorably delicate, the heel height is actually a killer for longtime wear. Personally, I’m more of a kitten heel gal and prefer them because I can last longer than 3 hours standing in them while still giving off the appearance of elongated legs.
