My Wardrobe: Black Leopard

Photos: Tek Chung

I was in Chicago all of last week for my Topshop event, and wanted to share a few pictures of an outfit I wore out there and absolutely loved. Full-on leopard print can sometimes be a bit OTT but I love this dress, as it's a softer, khaki-based alternative to classic leopard print that makes it so much easier to wear. The dress is exactly the right balance of formal and casual to take from day-to-night. The cut is super feminine, but the print is edgy so it's easy to wear whatever the occasion. It's also an extremely flattering cut; wrap-front with a tie waist and cropped lining on the midi-length skirt to make the length sheer. Paired with my leather biker jacket and buckled sandals, it's a look that's much darker than my usual for this time of year, but I absolutely love it and I know it will take me into A/W nicely. I also layered it over a lace long-line bandeau bra from to minimise the cleavage. Mine's from Victoria's Secret but I don't think it's available anymore so I've included some options below - it's genuinely one of the most useful undergarments in my wardrobe.

 
 
I also roped in an awesome photographer I met in Chicago to take the pictures for me - I love the way they turned out, so a massive thanks to Tek Chung for these - you should check out his work on Instagram, it's pretty awesome.

  7. Wow, you look so good. I love the wild print with the biker jacket. (Well I love anything biker related to be honest ) Im not a big fan of animal prints, but I really like how it looks with the cut of the dress - its sexy and flowy, what more can you want?!
    P.S. Your photographer IS awesome. Amazing pics.

  14. I love this outfit, especially those shoes! I also find leopard print so tricky to buy, I find it so rock n roll but sometimes they can look so tacky. Not this piece though! You've got great style.

  15. This is such a gorgeous dress! I'm afraid to wear leopard print because I wouldn't want it to look tacky or just not right, but I could probably add touches of it, for example with shoes.
