I realised that I hadn’t worn leopard print for ages – I don’t know why because it’s one of my favourite prints. Now things are opening up again and we can go out to bars and restaurants it seemed like a good time to try a dressy look. This shirt dress is great for both going out or wearing more casually thanks to the muted colourway. (You can see how I previously styled it for colder weather here). However, I had the perfect excuse to elevate this leopard print dress with a set of fabulous button covers from Goodnight Irene. Some might think blinged up leopard print is a bit over the top, but not me…I’m all for adding sparkle to an outfit!

These covers are brilliant for elevating your outfit without the commitment or hassle of replacing the existing buttons

I love stylish add-ons that can transform an outfit (I have shoe clips too that I’ve featured here and here). These button covers are really easy to use, they simply flip open at the back and you slide them onto the button and snap them shut. You won’t ruin your manicure doing it either, which is always a bonus! I think buttons make a huge difference to the overall look of a garment. These covers are brilliant for elevating your outfit without the commitment or hassle of replacing the existing buttons. I took my cue from them when choosing my jewellery, adding some chandelier earrings (hidden by my hair) and a cocktail ring. My sunglasses match the dress quite well – I bought them from TKMaxx for our holiday in Turkey but I haven’t worn them much since. I’d forgotten how much I like them!

I needed to add a little bit of colour to my outfit, and of course it had to be orange! My matching bag and nails provide the colour hit to finish off the outfit. My nail polish is actually neon although you can’t really tell from the photos. It’s by Revolution and is really good value for money at only £4. I’ve got the neon green shade too – they’re perfect for summer!

Have you ever tried button covers or shoe clips to instantly elevate an outfit? Do you love blinged up leopard print or is it too much for you?

    Never heard of button covers! But what a good idea, I can see some of my jackets could use that. Shoe clips are also something I never tried, but sounds like a fun thing to do. The dress is gorgeous, I also love a leopard print.

    That is a great idea! Love the button bling! The addition of orange with your bag is just the right touch! It is funny, I seem to forget about leopard print in the summer but wear it the rest of the year. Love the sunnies they go perfectly!
    Have a great week!

  12. Thanks for featuring me and my upcycled maxi dress. You made my day. Also thanks for hosting the party every week. Your leopard dress is a reall star. You really should wear it more often. It’s so posh casual. Elegant without being over the top. A great find and keeper.

    I hope you are having a great week so far!
