Animal print, especially leopard, has been linked to sexiness and bold, head-turning looks. It’s all a matter of design and styling though. Today we’ll see an example of how you can achieve a girlie evening look with a leopard print dress.

My friend Katerina Vassou bought this dress while on holiday in Romania. It’s a simple cut, waisted mini-dress with short sleeves and a flared skirt. The tulle layer at the hemline is the element which makes all the difference, as it adds a romantic touch to the classically seductive coherence of leopard print. A stretch, figure-hugging animal print dress would be sexy, and a paillette one would look playful.
Matched with a black evening bag and black ballet flats, this look is ideal for a first date where you want to pretty but no like you’re trying too much. Light curls or a sleek care (bob) haircut are ideal to complete the look, which will look fab for both brunettes and blondes.
