Tartan & Leopard | Mixing Patterns | Asymmetric Dress & Booties

Tartan checked dress, leopard boots | Mixing patterns | Fake Fabulous

Today I'm wearing a mixed checked pattern dress with my leopard boots and I'm loving the clash!
Cold days call for a burst of cheer and a bold outfit can be a great way to do that.
It's so easy to simply pop on your own sunshine.
Or, in this case, a riot of pattern and colour... grounded with some comforting black.

Of course, I'm layered up here with two thermal polo necks, wool ankle socks and a cosy pair of thermal tights.
The wind was BITTER and I had to grit my teeth a little to get these photographs taken!
Brrrrr...

I love the asymmetry of this dress with it's flowing panel and unusual top half.
It has a pretty tie back that will look fab in summer.

It's FAR from summer temperatures now so I had to wear my long cobalt coat over this outfit... you can see it styled with a silver maxi skirt and trainers HERE and with hot pink HERE.

  1. I love this dress in too many ways to elaborate. (Colors, patterns, length, trailing ruffle, ......) Love the entire outfit. Very chic with a 1920s/1930s vibe.

  2. Love the dress but not too sure about the boots. A bit too much of a contrast for me but you can pull it off. Love - Jill stylishatsixty

  3. No white inside of the cloth :-D some companies know how to produce their materials. Love how it is flapping in the wind

  4. Wow, what an unusual piece! I like that the fabric is not white-backed (like Joze) - that's a sign of better quality, for sure. I would totally wear this dress, but I'm kind of iffy on the leopard boots with it. Maybe it's one of those things that you have to see a bit until your eyes get used to it. Anyway, you wear it with elan, and you look amazing!

  7. Love the mixed,modern,tartans in the dress and it's got a great flowy factor. Your hair shades replicate the colors in those boots for a nice bookends effect!
