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.
The one shouldered or asymmetrical leopard print dress is also a really fashionable look this year. Also combinations of leopard print with other animal prints is a great look that will work for most people.
You can also try combining you leopard print dress with another key trend of the season. A really up to date style or shape of shift dress will keep the look really fresh.
If you love this seasons lace dress why not go for a leopard lace dress combination.
If your average leopard print is just not glamorous for you then why not add sequins as well.
For those that don’t like body con and mini dresses, you can find some great leopard priny maxi dresses online. 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.
