How deeply have we committed to the animal print trend so far this year? Maybe we’ve accessorized with a leopard-print clutch or slipped on a pair of zebra-print socks. Great starters, and both will always get compliments from Us, but we want to rev things up, and we have just the dress shoot us to the top of our fashion game!
The Diane von Furstenberg Carli Ruffled Silk-Jersey Wrap Dress is covered in a snakeskin print, but this isn’t as scary of a leap into the jungle as it may seem. This Python Kola print eases us into the trend so seamlessly. It’s the best way to play with fun and funky prints while still keeping things neutral, and it’s designed in DVF’s most flattering and famous style of dress: the wrap! The best part is we can grab it right now for over $200 off the original price!
This captivating dress is made of DVF’s signature silk jersey material, which is super soft and glides gloriously against our skin. It also helps to create the gorgeous draping effects that accent this piece. Up top, this dress has a georgette V-neckline. The georgette style is crafted by twisting yarns to create curves in fabric, therefore producing flowy and instantly elegant chiffon ruffles!
These ruffles don’t begin and end at the neckline. We’ll also find them at the cuffs of the long bell sleeves of this piece, cascading and gently swinging in a flounce as we walk. We were already covering a top trend with the animal print, but bell sleeves are super in right now, too. These sleeves also hit at just the right length, with no fabric draping past our wrist, therefore keeping our hands free!
The ruffle effect continues at the hem at of this dress, which hits at the knees. We love how the chiffon ruffle is translucent, showing just that hint of skin right at the bottom of the dress!
Another amazing feature of this wrap dress is the tie belt that sits up at the natural waist. It cinches our figure, delivering an even more flattering fit on what was already a show-stopping silhouette! We also love how we can let the loose ends of the tie hang down the skirt, adding even more movement to the piece as we stride along feeling fabulous!
Because of this dress’ blend of beige, tan and black, it’s super easy to style; we don’t have to worry much about what colors will or won’t match up. We can get a little creative! Easy choices are black, nude or gold accessories and shoes, but if we want to step out of the box a bit, we encouraged it! We’re personally picturing a red or yellow heel or maybe a silky blue headband!
If we want to grab a Carli dress for ourselves, we’re going to want to act quickly. At 40% off, it’s bound to sell out quickly. The other two versions are already gone, after all! Luckily, we still have time to secure one of these stunners for ourselves. So let’s slither on in and grab our size ASAP!
