Everyone Always Seems to Compliment Me on This One Particular High-Street Dress

An animal-print dress—that's all it is. But every time I've worn one particular dress from Warehouse, I've gotten compliments. I've thought a lot about why it works for me: It emphasises my small waist, it hides the bits I would rather forget about and it's flattering on the bust without making me feel exposed. It also slightly slits up the side, is the ideal length for my frame and comes in an animal print pattern that's not too elegant. Other than my wedding dress, I've never had so many people tell me how great I look. And now Holly Willoughby has cottoned onto this fantastic high-street brand for flattering silhouettes. The shop in question? Warehouse.



Floral-print dresses and checked blazer are the clashing combo that works so well. Case in point…

This is another It dress from the Warehouse and Laura Jackson edit. Sadly, it's already flown off the virtual rails, but there are more polkas below. 

This orange beauty is from the brand new Marseille Curated collection and will be online here soon.

Happily, there are plenty of other dresses from Warehouse that will deliver a similarly pretty silhouette. In fact, other girls in the Who What Wear office swear by the brand's flattering pattern-cutting. From sparkling party frocks to dresses that are ideal for a wedding, there are so many styles to choose from. Even better, you can wear them with sneakers or heels, creating so many more outfit options (meaning you can milk it for even more compliments). Below I've selected some of the best Warehouse dresses you don't want to miss out on.
