Dear Stylemma, I loved the maxi dress Alexa Chung wore during New York Fashion week, which had an all-over fox print. I’d love to find something similar, if not with a print of an actual animal on it, then something in a bold animal print. Can you help me?
We love, love, love that dress! Alexa’s was designed by Deyrolle for Opening Ceremony and, sadly, it’s only available online, see www.openingceremony.us. But there are loads of great alternatives out there. With its nipped-in waist, Warehouse’s swallow-print dress, €84, in blue, is super flattering. Whistles’s galloping horse dress, €188, has short puffed sleeves, finishes on the knee and is very Alexa. If you’d rather go with a loud animal print then it has to be Reiss’s flared animal-print dress in black and cream, €200, which would look amazing teamed with black tights and bright red heels.
