Leopard—my latest stylish print obsession—makes me feel fashionable and a little flirtatious. But pairing this bold Charlotte Russe dress with one of the brand’s boyfriend blazers, hot pink heels and a pair of dark tights created the perfect fashion-forward (and modest) outfit for an evening at Kansas City Fashion Week. Trendy layers with a short party dress showcases both sass and sophistication.

Rarely caught with my hair up, I recently discovered I do like the occasional high pony when I want to add a little sass to an outfit (or show off amazing back detailing, like on this top from Charlotte Russe). Taking a strand of hair from the bottom side of a pony, wrapping it around the elastic and then pinning the strand under the pony is the best way I’ve found to add sophistication to this classic updo.

As a lover of bright colors and pastels, I’m not quite ready to pack my summery clothing. The compromise? I paired a long black skirt with one of my favorite turquoise tops and a matching statement necklace. Another addition that makes this outfit transitional is a structured black handbag—I’ve been obsessing over ones with gold accents for months, and now is the perfect time to start rocking this trend.
