Over The Knee Boots: Amazon, also love this
When I saw this leopard print dress at Ann Taylor’s Chicago flagship store on Michigan Ave, I couldn’t resist but take it home with me. I told myself, no more leopard print, but I put on this dress and it was perfect. Everything about it was perfect. I love the silhouette. It is a flared a-line silhouette. So very flattering! It’s tailor-fit, and hugs in the right places like the waist without suffocating it haha.
I also really love the mock neck neckline. It makes it appropriate for work or a night out (like holiday parties!). The fabric has more structure to it with a satin-like finish. So pretty!
Remember when I talked about creating a holiday outfit with the leopard print skirt? My mind is nonstop all about the holidays and I immediately wanted to create a holiday look with this leopard print dress.
Creating a Holiday Outfit
I also wanted to keep in mind the weather this time of year. Chicago’s Decembers are cold and wearing a dress is challenging. So I needed this dress to somewhat be comfortable to wear outside. And that’s when I saw this faux fur stole. Adding a faux fur stole adds a touch of glam to any outfit. I always think of old Hollywood glam when I see one! I went with the ‘rust maroon‘ color.
Now let’s talk about legs. Bare legs in the winter is just plain brutal. I’m freezing just thinking it. My trick to wear a skirt or dress during the winter is wearing over the knee boots (it is currently $35). They pretty much cover the entire legs without losing the aesthetic or style of the outfit. For extra warmth, I recommend wearing black tights. On extra cold days, the sweater tights will do the trick.
I will for sure be wearing this dress after the holiday season. It’s such a versatile dress!
I LOVE this outfit! That stole is just so cute!! Have a great weekend, Rach!!
Thank you so much Jessica!
I love leopard print so much! And this dress definitely needs to be in my collection 🙂
Thank you so much Mei!
I love using over the knee boots to circumvent wearing tights! The leopard dress is so cute and the long sleeves definitely help with the winter chill!

Thank you so much Lydia!
This is such a darling outfit! I love the suggestion of leopard because it’s not holiday-centric so you can continue wearing this dress for months. And I love the wine color of the faux fur wrap!
Yes, that’s what I love about it too! Versatile all year round!
Cute dress, I love that faux fur stole you are pairing with it, it’s fabulous!!
