Casual Leopard

One of the best ways to dress down an outfit is to throw on a denim jacket. Denim has a devil-may-care attitude, especially when paired with a dress.

Dress: Ross Dress for Less
Jacket: Swapped
Tights: Target
Boots: MIA
Scarf: Street vendor in Toronto

I dressed down this leopard-print dress with a denim jacket, and I took is a couple of steps further. I added purple tights and a robin’s egg blue scarf. Flat knee-high boots added to the relaxed feel.

Now the dress that was office or dinner wear is ready for a casual lunch with friends. I happened to run errands in this outfit and was comfortable and stylish. Plus, the extra layers kept me warm!

  1. What a fun look! I’ll try it–I have a leopard dress and purple tights. I also have a denim shirt that I wear as a jacket so I’ll see how it looks together!

    Have a great week! ❤

  2. I like it that you pair the dress with casual denim and tall boots.. nice!

  3. Hi there! Being a denim addict, I love your look-denim goes with anything and always looks stylish! Have a great week!

  4. Great look. I think I need a denim jacket. I haven’t had one since I was a teenager, but I see lots of ways to wear it.

  5. Me too! I love wearing my denim jacket over a dress. You look fabulous in this combo and thanks for sharing with Visible Monday.

  6. love it! i love denim jackets over dresses, and those purple tights are a must have. you look polished and adorable!

  7. Quite right … put some denim with it! Boots, booties, tights, guy-belts, etc.
    I’m thinking a lot about doing just this dress-down thing right now. The ultimate shop-your-closet project!

  8. This is a great “casual” look- because it’s mobile you can take it day to night- or from work to after work happy hour and home again. Meeeeow! That’s a happy vegan-friendly mew!

  9. Jean, hi! I am finally commenting on your blog instead of IG. hahahaha
    Don’t you just love the ease of not wearing bulky warm clothes in the PNW area? The entire 4 yrs I live there I only had a sweater coat that I wore in the deepest of winter. But I love my 4 seasons in Utah. Nice to see you here.

    • Ha ha! I appreciate it. sometimes I just want like buttons or ❤ icons everywhere. I even look for them in email–easier than replying!

      I do love the PNW in that I don't need bulky coats. I just bought a true winter coat because I never know where I might travel. But I was shocked at how warm it is! Then I remembered winter in Toronto. I hope to see Utah soon, but probably not in winter.

Let's chat! I love hearing from you:
