If you follow me on Instagram, then you will have seen me last week sporting my latest wardrobe addition – a new red animal print dress from Zara. I got it as a surprise gift from Mr Smith for my recent birthday and it’s safe to say that I absolutely LOVE it (he did really well this year)! I was so surprised that he chose something so perfect for me, stylish and also something I am so happy with – it was both exciting and lovely.
Animal print of course is a big trend this Autumn and as someone who adores both colour and animal print, I couldn’t be happier to see it everywhere (I only wish I had more cash flow). I especially love the red animal print mash up and have for a while wanted something in that look. I love the primark polo neck top that has flooded Insta and hoped for that, or something similar to add to my wardrobe. SO, of course when I opened this dress on my birthday I was genuinely grateful and made up!
This dress ticks all the boxes for me; It is comfy and easy to wear, modest and on point. I love the high neck, the below knee.mid calf length and the full sleeves for cool days. The boldness of the colour with the print suits me well and I really like it too – in my opinion it just looks fab and was this aspect of this dress that made me instantly love it.
It is a really flexible dress to wear, which makes it a great investment and addition to my wardrobe. I like that it can be dressy with ankle boots or heels, or casual with leggings/over Jeans. Initially I wore it with black opaque tights and black mules for a chilled yet smart look on remembrance Sunday, but I already plan to wear it with my heeled ankle boots, or with leggings and trainers too. The fact that it’s red means it has the addes bonus of being festive too with the right accessories on a Christmas do!
It’s safe to say you need one too!
This dress is available now in Zara – its a bargain at £17.99 and also comes in other colours and prints too (if you want something more toned down but still on trend!). I am wearing a medium and it fits really well for someone who is a UK 12!
Thanks Mr Smith – I love my new bright red animal print Zara dress of dreams!
