Olivia Culpo's Leopard Dress and Belt Bag Look for Less

Olivia Culpo Leopard Dress Look for Less
Just when we thought we couldn't be more obsessed with this season's leopard trend... Olivia Culpo one-ups them all with this plunging neck shirtdress. To die for, right?! This perfect match for less and some pointed-toe ankle boots like hers will turn heads at any and all occasions this winter - just don't forget a jacket! If you're worried about showing too much leg, some over-the-knee boots would be an instant stunner with this dress, too. Her belt bag is small but has dual use in holding the essentials while also giving some shape to the dress with a cinch at the waist. This double chain belt bag from Express is a spot-on spin-off! Since we want the dress to be the main attraction here, we love the simple touches of white nail polish, a demure lipstick, and simple silver rings.
