The leopard-print dress

Why should your swimwear have all the fun? A leopard-print dress deserves a space in your warm-weather wardrobe. Throw it over beachwear as a statement cover-up or add smart accessories for a balmy evening out. Take a walk on the wild side in this hot-pink leopard-print tea dress that roars summer fun. Try the on-trend midaxi length, which falls just between the knee and the ankle.

The leopard-print dress is a contemporary classic that delivers great style all summer long. Play around with styles that combine the print with bright colours for a sunshine-ready outfit or go for a laid-back look in timeless monochrome. Dress it up with a strappy heel or down with flatform sandals, depending on the occasion.
