I know a lot of you out there probably have a fear of anything animal print and could never imagine yourself wearing it, well change your thoughts now - I had that in the back of my mind but i have always loved animal print as my sister was always obsessed with it, its just something i never really suited not that i disliked it. I definitely think its had alot bad view on people, not for the animal side to it, as its only a pattern its not causing any harm to animals.
As soon as i styled this dress to suit me I must say it was my favourite outfit of the day. I have styled it 2 ways, one i didnt even mean with the jeans but i think its very quirky and different with a dress and jeans I would love to experiment more with that trend. And the other style just being the dress on its own - both are very casual but can be worn fancy if you choose the right accessories etc. My only MUST with animal print is tha you keep to BLACK EVERYTHING no other colours or overly accessorise as thats where it becomes tacky.
I have kept it as simple as i could with just a black belt as it was a little big on me but i love to add belts to everything anyway. I have gone for the " city shopper " look with my massive tote bag from LYDC in black of course and i have styled my hair a little more different than i normally do with a pleate to show the dress off more. No jewellery was needed as the print is bold in itself so i didnt need to drown it with jewellery or a hat etc just allowed the dress to be the main focusing point.
This beautiful dress is brought to you by Ruby Rocks, a company i have loved working with over the years of blogging and getting to experiment and style some of their collections. Visit them here for more amazing and unusual pieces.
And my jeans are from Celeb look uk - you may have seen my collaborations with them in recent posts - recreate this look here:
