Styling a black dress for work with brown and leopard print

Leave a comment

If you’ve been reading my styling posts, you’ll probably have noticed that I try to keep my styling simple! Today I styled my black JoJo dress a little bit retro with a lovely leopard scarf and some black sunnies!

I’m wearing some brown kitten heel sling back shoes which are great for a little bit of a lift but also comfy! Brown shoes work with this black dress because they pick out the brown in the leopard scarf.

I was enjoying some icecream in The Parlour at Fortnums. A great way to get the creative juices flowing on a hot day!!

You could try any of the following with a black dress; Tie the outfit together with a scarf or belt that mixes brown and black with some brown shoes.

I would suggest for work outfits to keep the look more professional you select scarves that are slim, silky and not too long. A bigger bulkier scarf can look really good in a casual look but could be too dominant for work.
