Wearing: Biba dress c/o House of Fraser, Vintage belt and sunglasses, Kurt Geiger sandals
I often say that leopard print is my favourite colour, because I wear so little colour that a statement print gives something more to a look than my usual cream/navy/black/camel/grey palette. Even so, this dress, beautiful as it is, made me feel completely out of my comfort zone; the leopard print is so vibrant and there's even (shock horror!) some pink in it!
However, bright colours aside, this dress, kindly sent to me by House of Fraser, is simply stunning. It's a wrap style, which is a style I normally steer clear of as I don't find that they suit my shape; I like oversized, boxy and loose fitting dresses as I don't have any sort of bust so usually wrap dresses gape dreadfully. Luckily Biba must have realised that smaller busted ladies like to wear wrap dresses now and then, and there is a handy button on the inside of the wrap over to fasten the fabric together.
The print is the selling point of this dress, definitely; it's not only leopard print, but also has leopard heads incorporated into it, together with the Biba logo. Logos have really become a 'thing' again, with lots of the higher end brands embracing slogans and slapping logos all over their products with total abandon, negating the previous association with eighties naff.
The sleeves are also worth mentioning; super on trend as this season frills and ruffles continue to dominate, alongside oversized sleeves. They make a real statement and add an almost kimono-style feel to the dress, which makes it really wearable especially if you aren't keen on showing your arms!
House of Fraser have some fabulous brands in store including Biba, and their dress range online is really strong, shop the full range here.
