Question: Leopard Print Dress
Hi, I’ve bought a tiger dress , you may call it a leopard dress, with wide opening at the bust and the back. I want to do or wear something to hide this wide opening, what can I do???? Also, what is the best style that match this dress??? Thank you. ~ Razan
Hi Razan! In order to hide the wide opening on the bust and the back of your leopard dress, I suggest wearing over it a blazer, a jacket or a cardigan in neutral color such as black, dark brown or nude. There are two ways to style your dress:
First, inject bold colors to your wild print as shown in this Chic Outfit Idea for Animal Print. One vibrant color that blends well with a leopard print is green. In the first outfit combo I created above, you accessorize your leopard dress with a green scarf (to hide the bust opening) then layer over it a black jacket (to cover the back opening and to polish the entire look). Wear a pair of green pumps to create a match with your scarf and to emphasize this vibrant color. You can wear bangles or cuff too to add more spice and carry a black clutch to balance the look.
Second, keep everything neutral. If you want to make your leopard print stand out, keep the rest of the items basic. Wear a brown scarf and throw over it a black jacket then slip into black or brown pumps. You can grab a black clutch or you can inject a little color by going for a green clutch instead.
Lastly, don´t be afraid to experiment with colors to blend your print. And remember the rule of contrast in layering up your dress. Long jacket over short dress and vice versa.
I hope this helps. 🙂
