Five things you need to own NOW

If you’ve had enough of leopard print emblazoning every garment you own, don’t worry, another trend has been slithering into style for the last couple of s-s-seasons and its super stylish. Welcome to snake print –  an instant update for your tired and weary wardrobe.

the dress

As per usual, Penneys have been first out of the traps with this trend with lots of lovely stock kicking off the season back in September. Releasing this week, however, is this lush shirtdress. It has a seventies style collar and a gorgeous thick ring belt.  Hurry, hurry. This WILL BE a sell out.
