Zebra Stripes on One-sleeve Poncho Dress

My fashionistas, seen my last two posts? Tired of  leopard print? Then try out zebra stripes. Wild animal prints have come roaring back onto the fashion scene of late. From handbags and shoes to peplum skirts and bed linens, this hot, fun and funky trend seems here to stay.

Both high-street retailers and high-end designers  have a soft spot for exotic spots. Leopard was ubiquitous yet again this season, but there is absolutely zilch new about it. The cure for our animal-print ennui came in the form of fresh-looking zebra stripes.

The graphic zigzags were rendered glam at Emilio Pucci, Tom Ford, and Versace, and casual at Sacai, Joseph, and A.L.C. Designers incorporated the black and white streaks into accessories, too. Katie Grand went wild for the pattern with her second Hogan collaboration, and Alice + Olivia’s adorable zebra-shaped cross-body bag also turned heads. Source: www.style.com

Women like me-the curvy lot probably should never wear a full poncho, reason being you look even fuller. The moment I saw this one-sided off-shoulder poncho, I just knew this is for me:) The best thing about this dress is I can dress it UP at night for cocktails event with high heels and dress it DOWN for a summer day out-be it for sight-seeing or just relaxing on the beach. A slick matte golden belt comes free with it, it’s upto you really-you can wear the belt with other outfits as well.

I have tried almost no-make-up here, just drawn my eye-line and a dash of pink lipstick. Simple, easy and quick-y:) My dance instructor made a comment the moment she saw my yellow nail lacquer- ”oh! you have jaundiced nails!,” I smiled and said it is en vogue.

So if you have been prowling the boutiques for some fun outfits, wait no further, I have been just waiting for you to get your paws on this trend….try it, Zebra stripes it, drop me a line at the comment section as I love to hear what you have to say.
