Slip dresses are my new favourite trend. They sassy, sexy and can be dressed up or dressed down. It’s kinda like underwear as outerwear and they are perfect for layering.
Leopard print has never really gone away, has it? It’s always been a trend lurking in the background of the fashion realm. More recently, though, it’s definitely emerged to the forefront – but it has to be done right.
You want to look more Kate Moss and less Kat Slater. There’s a fine line, and wearing leopard print can either look amazing, or mega trashy. I like to think that slightly more loose-fitted pieces look better than skin tight, such as blouses and wide-leg pants as opposed to a bodycon dress. You want to think feminine feline, with flattering cuts and flirty details.
I got this leopard print slip dress from Topshop in the sale, but it’s now out of stock. I got the petite as it was the only style left in my size, and if I’m honest, it’s shorter than I’d have liked, but I can *just about* get away with it.
For a casual ‘day’ look, I wore it layered over a plain black tee. This is a great look if you have a capsule wardrobe as it’s really simple, but effective. I accessorised with a little camel coloured felt fedora, a brown vintage-esque satchel and tied in some leopard print with some black, printed slip-on flats.

This simple look is classic, and I have to say, I felt bad-ass in it. You know when you imagined an outfit in your head then throw it on and look in the mirror and actually feel great? It can be a rare occurrence but, my gosh, it feels good when it happens.
Leopard print is the new red. Brave, bold and totally empowering.
What’s great about this dress being a little shorter than average is that you can actually get away with wearing it tucked in a skirt as a cool cami-mini-skirt-combo. It’s make a fab night outfit with some killer boots. You could also wear it alone with a belt around the middle. It’s such a versatile piece that’s definitely going to give you a great cost-per-wear.
