Get the look: black blazer and leopard slip dress

As I mentioned on Monday, it's dress month at Cheryl Shops, so it's fitting that the most repinned look on my Outfit ideas for ageless style Pinterest board features a dress. It also features a blazer, which makes it very similar to last month's most-repinned look, but obviously you guys are vibing on this combo. I think it's perfect for summer; there's nothing easier than a flowy dress, and the blazer keeps you from freezing in the air-conditioning, plus the accessories make the whole thing feel casual yet chic. Here's how to put it all together. 

There are a lot of very severe-looking double-breasted black blazers out there, but what I like about this one is that it feels relaxed and easy to wear. It's also in a lighter fabric that's perfect for summer. This one is a bit of a splurge, but it's worth investing in. 

What makes this look work so well is that it's all about contrast: structured and flowy, casual and dressed up. This leopard-print slip dress is a key component, and that big slit is necessary for a bit of sexiness. 

The woman in the photo is probably carrying a Loewe tote, and while I am up for a good designer bag, spending that much on straw just seems ridiculous to me. So here's a cheap and cheerful alternative. 

One of my favorite parts of her look is the heavy chain-link and lock necklace that she's wearing—it feels very current and luxe, especially against the low-key feel of her other accessories. 

Finally, her shoes are cut off in this photograph, but she's wearing simple white slides that have a bit of an athletic sandal feel. I like this pair because they're a bit more feminine (and they're on major sale). 



I like this look because it is simple but makes a lot of statement

I think the blazer really makes this look stand out! It's such a nice combo, one I wish I could pull off but I find midi dresses tricky and while I have tired a blazer and midi dress combo it didn't look as effortless as this, ha!

Hope you had a lovely weekend :) Thanks so much for joining the #WeekdayWearLinkup last week! The new link up is live on my blog now, I'd love you to join again. :)
