A Dress You'll Wear to Death | Leopard & Zebra

Leopard midi dress, zebra belt and tan sandals | Fake Fabulous

This wrap dress has been worn SO many times I was convinced you'd be sick of the sight of it here at Fake Fabulous.

When I was wearing it again today (yawn) and decided to take photographs I thought Id better check to see how many times it had been on the blog.

I didn't want to bore you to death with outfits on repeat.

Imagine my surprise to see that it had only been featured once in this winter outfit.

ONCE?
Blimey.... it feels like I've not had it off my back.

I'm happy to share it with you today because I feel like any leopard dress is a great addition to any woman's wardrobe.
Any age.
Any size.
It doesn't matter.
A leopard dress will probably be a very versatile and wearable piece of clothing in your outfit arsenal.

This leopard dress works well with many different items.
I've worn it with...

  • A black polo-neck, black opaque tights & leopard boots.
  • A brown polo-neck, brown tights & ankle boots.
  • Ditto above but with a cream polo-neck...(I like a polo-neck in the colder months)
  • Red boots.
  • Army-style boots.
  • Knee boots.
  • Layered over a white shirt with heels.
  • With a white Tee & white leather trainers
  • With a lace camisole and converse.
  • On its own with fishnets and heels.
  • Backwards with a wide leather belt... it doesn't have bust darts so this works surprisingly well and give a lovely V back!


And here I am again, pairing it with a zebra belt and sandals.

It's a workhorse for sure!

I've pinned the front of the dress today with a cheeky little geek pin, just to stop any 'sexy' flashing.
I was going somewhere where any flash of a bra would have been a no-no.
It does sit quite nicely without the pin but sometimes we need to be a little more careful, don't we?

I honestly think that leopard is one of the great neutrals and (as long as you don't overdo the hair or the makeup) can look effortless and cool.

  2. Upon closer inspection I see that there's BLUE in your leopard print!! Aren't you the clever one!:-) Blue makes it even more of a Samantha dress moment. It's a beauty and I'm guessing that the blue makes it even more versatile and wearable.
    I found a Ralph Lauren,leopard print. maxi in a consignment shop a few years ago and snapped it up. I got lots of nice compliments at the wedding I wore it to. When we moved, I recycled it once again. Perhaps I need a new version!? :-)

      It sounds like quite a find.
      I LOVE it when a great piece is lying unloved waiting for a new home.

    1. Hahahahahaha... me too Suzy!
      Wrap dresses are for the curvy girls that can fill them out, cinch in and smoulder.
      This dress can look a little sad and droopy BUT the shoulders give me a helping hand :oP
