A leopard print dress certainly says something about you. It says that you are right on trend and ready to party but also a bit of an animal. A leopard print dress needs to be worn with attitude. It is not for the shy and retiring types but for the girls who know what they want and that is a good time. With animal prints being such a huge trend this winter, the leopard print dress is the ultimate Christmas party dress of the season.
Animal prints particularly leopard prints do have a bit of a reputation though and you need to pick your style carefully to ensure that you look more ‘Pixie Lott’ than ‘Pat Butcher’. Consider the colour, size and boldness of the leopard print and how it will work with your colouring, size and shape.

For example if you are petite, then look for a small scale leopard print.

If you larger hips then perhaps opt for a shift dress with a black skirt and leopard print top.

With a fitted bodice to show off you upper body and a long looser fitting skirt to skim over the tummy, hips and thighs, this is the perfect choice for those who are a little self conscious about their body. It also great for those who want to rock the leopard print dress in a slightly more grown up and sophisticated way.
A final word on leopard print dresses. They are a huge style statment in their own right and generally don’t need anything to compete with them in the way of accessories. Wearing your leopard print dress with neutral coloured shoes and accessories are very this season but you might also be able to get away with one really bright and bold accessory. Red works really well with leopard print.
At Dolce and Gabbana, leopard prints were combined with polka dots for a bold and unusal look. You could try adding a polka dot accessory for a brave but on trend look. Low key and understated jewellery is the way to go or even go without jewellery altogether.

Animal Body Con Dress – Warehouse
Once we arrive in January, the Christmas and New Year Party season will be over, it is time to pack away those party dresses (for a week or two anyway) and start thinking about your wardrobe for the year ahead.
At The beginning of each year most of us also have resolutions to keep, as the new year normally represents a point in time when we can look forward with optimism and use it as a new start.
Everyone wants to look stylish and feel good about themselves and part of this is ensuring that you get the maximum style and wear from every piece of clothing that you buy, so adopting the following good habits allows you not only to fulfil a new years resolution, but look and feel great about it too.
- Shop the sales carefully for bargains that you will wear
Everyone loves a bargain in the sales but it is only a bargain if it is something that you actually need and will wear. Think carefully about the gaps in your wardrobe and use the sales to fill those gaps. If you hardly ever go to parties don’t buy more party dresses instead get some casual dresses. Shopping in the sales is also a good time to buy something that you might not usually be able to afford, perhaps a designer handbag or designer dress. Look for versatile item that will not go out of fashion to quickly and can be worn in lots of different ways.
- Clear out clothes that you no longer wear
Clearing out any clothes that you don’t wear is a great way to make some space so that you can actually see what is in your wardrobe. Be ruthless, if you don’t feel good in a piece of clothing, get rid. It is also a good way to remind yourself of what you have actually got. You can recycle old clothes by swapping, selling or donating them to charity.
- Choose clothes that suit your body shape
By choosing clothes that suit your body shape you will always look and feel great. You don’t need to stick to wearing the same clothes all of the time but if you find a particular style that works well for you why not base your outfits around it. You can vary colours, patterns and accessories to keep the look fresh. By dressing to your strengths you can avoid those days when you feel like you tummy, hips or thighs look to big or you look too short. If you want to wear a leopard print dress then choose a leopard print dress in a shape that suits you.
- Find out your best colours and wear them
If you always want to look healthy with a glowing complexion, then you should try and find clothes in colours that compliment you natural colouring. You should avoid at all costs the colours that make you look pale and drained. To find your best colours first decide whether you have a warm or cool skin tone. Warms will look good in browns, reds, yellows or oranges whilst cool skin tones will look best in purple, greens, blues and pinks.
Style is all about individuality. You don’t need to just follow the crowd, you can do your own thing. Seek out individual pieces and unique dresses that you love and don’t be afraid to wear them. Always wear clothes that make you feel comfortable and happy. If you are wearing something that you don’t feel happy in, your discomfort will show. If you get fed up with wearing the same old jeans and t shirts all of the time, why not get some casual dresses instead.

Christmas party dresses are all about glamour, sparkle and style statements to get you noticed. Christmas is not a time for subtle looks that fade into the background. This Christmas the key trends in party dresses are eye-catching and bold. Here are the top 5 trends in party dresses .
The Sequin Dress
Everyone loves sparkle and if you don’t get the opportunity to wear it for the rest of the year Christmas is the one time that you can. All over sequins are hot news this year with gold and black also both being a really on trend colours when it comes to sequins. The sparkle of a sequin dress is balanced by the relative simple style which could include a t shirt style, vest style or even glamorous maxi dress style. One of the key influences on this trend is the amazing sequin creations by designer Ashish. We love this Toya sequin shift dress at Boohoo.
The Lace Dress
If you are looking for a party dress that is sexy in a very subtle way, then the lace dress is for you. Lace dresses are so huge this winter that there is most definitely a style to suit everyone from feminine fifties style dresses to more directional body con dresses. We love this lace tiered dress by Oasis which is the ultimate in luxury.
The Draped Dress
The draped dress is a trend that has been going strong for quite a few seasons now. This winter there are more draped party dress styles around than ever before with the one shouldered shape been amongst the most popular. The draped dress is probably one of the most flattering styles of party dress around this winter with its loosely fitting drapes concealing lumps and bumps and elongating the body. Lipsy have a great range of draped dresses that are perfect for partying in this Christmas. We love this one shouldered draped dress by Lipsy which definitely has a look for Greek Goddesss about it.
The Red Dress
Forget the Little black dress, this Christmas it is all about the little red dress. Red is such a great colour for Christmas and if you worry about whether red suits you,the red dress is available in a variety of shades to suit most skin tones. A bright red dress already makes a big style statement so one of the best ways to wear this trend is by keeping it simple. We love this Assymetric jersey drape dress by Lipsy.
The Leopard Print Dress
Leopard print is definitely seeing a revival this year and the winter sees it being featured on everything from accessories to coats. A Christmas party is a great time to wear leopard print as it is glamorous, bold and flattering. The leopard dress is such an eyecatching look that you will be sure to get noticed. we love this Janine cage back dress by Motel which combines a leopard ptint top with a slimming black skirt, perfect for dancing the night away.
