Fall is out in full force, and I’m loving the gorgeous gold leaves which are such a pretty backdrop to my chic, new DVF Leopard Wrap Dress.
Diane Von Furstenberg has always been one of my go-to brands. She’s a designer who is not afraid of color or print, and I like that!
Of course, DVF is most famous for her iconic wrap dress, of which I have owned many! I keep buying this style because wrap dresses are so figure-flattering. They nip in the waist and push up the bust, enhancing your curves and creating a beautiful hourglass figure.
This darling leopard dress is similar to the classic wrap dress but with a twist. It’s more like a cross between shirtdress and a wrap dress. Instead of the typical crisscross neckline, it has a button up front. So, you still get that feminine shape, but there’s no worry of exposing too much cleavage which can sometimes happen with a wrap dress. (They tend to slip open at the neckline, and sometimes you have to pin them or wear a camisole.)
This dress feels fantastic! I feel professional, modern and a little bit sexy because of the wild animal print. Leopard print is such a huge trend this fall as you have probably noticed. (More about How to Wear animal prints in this post).
How do you look fab in a dress like this? You don’t need to accessorize this leopard print dress very much because the print is so bold. These black suede pumps and ultrasheer hose give it a very classy look, but you could also wear opaque hose and pair of black suede or leather boots which would look great too!
Here’s a closer look at that interesting wrap detail. You can see the shirtdress silhouette and the way the material had been gathered, twisted and wrapped under the bust. I must say, it really gives you an extra boost … if you know what I mean! I was starting to feel like a Victoria’s Secret model. (LOL)
The cuffed sleeves are a nice touch too.
My Gucci bag has been all over the blog lately. I treated myself last year ( X-mas gift to myself) to this velvet beauty, and I’m really enjoying it! I think the velvet is a nice way to bring in some texture in and it makes the leopard print seem more glam.
If you are looking for a way to get in on the leopard print trend and you want to do it in a classic, ladylike way, then this lovely dress is a winner! Here are the links to the outfit so you can shop the look.
I’ve also included some other leopard print dresses at different price points and slightly different styles above, so have a peek.
