Trust Pippa O'Connor to so seamlessly make the transition from summer to autumn
Just look at the outfit Pippa O'Connor wore to the opening of Arnotts' shoe gallery. It's the ultimate in summer/autumn.
If you're unsure of whether or not you can pull off the print past favoured by Bette Lynch and Peggy Bundy, stop questioning yourself. Of course you can! Leopard print should be considered a wardrobe neutral, like black. But an entire swash of leopard in dress form á la Pippa, is much more interesting than a long black dress. It's so easy to accessorise, too, as you can see. Pippa's dress is by Ganni - which is having a real moment right now - and the shoes are plain black Kurt Geiger courts. She's tied it with a black belt by Topshop.
If you're still a little afraid of leopard, try it out by inverting Pippa's outfit. Black dress, leopard shoes and a leopard belt.
Arnotts is the only store in Ireland that host the brand, and we found Pips' dress there for €509. If you'd like something similar for less, we've found this one for about half the price.
And this one from H&M for €22.99 - down from €59.95.
