It’s high time for another one piece five ways post, don’t you think? I received this gorgeous leopard dress from Zoe Alexander and since it’s so different from anything else I have in my closet, I had fun figuring out all the different ways I could style it. To be honest, this was the hardest One Piece Five Ways I’ve done so far, but the challenge made it even more fun.
1. Casual (as a skirt)

Just like jeans, one of the easiest things to pair with a loud print is chambray, which helps balance out this busy print. I added some casual boots and a little pop of color with a bubble necklace, and then of course my new favorite accessory — my glasses. Cute, fun, and comfy.

4. Office Wear
A leopard print dress doesn’t exactly scream “work wear,” but I wanted to figure out a way to make it office appropriate (since I get comments every once in a while from readers about office friendly clothing). A neutral blazer, buttoned up, helps break up the full length of leopard, and keeps it from being so sexy for the office. A thin belt and a pair of simple black wedges polishes off the look and keeps it sophisticated.
5. Evening Attire
This dress was made for going out, so this was the easiest look to throw together. Black tights, sky high stilettos and big sparkly earrings make the outfit sleek and pretty, while a thick black belt breaks up the all over leopard and cinches in your waist. Add a little extra eye makeup and a swipe of color on your lips and you’re ready for a night out.
Zoe Alexander specializes in maternity wear, but their clothing is made to wear during and after pregnancy. Obviously this dress works perfectly for me post partum, but is definitely stretchy enough to wear if I still had a big belly. Also, all of their clothing is made with your specific measurements, so it fits like a glove. See their entire collection here.
