We've Just Discovered the Perfect Leopard-Print Dress for Under £40

For anyone out there experiencing animal-print fatigue, we apologise in advance. But then again, this might be a case of #sorrynotsorry, because we just found the perfect leopard-print dress for autumn, and it's only £38. Seriously, people: This is not a drill. Created by curveball brand V by Very, we first spotted the dress on style maven Laura Jackson, who styled it to perfection with a Shrimps Antonia beaded bag and a pair of gold hoops.

Unlike many of the floor-sweeping frocks we've seen this summer, this style feels quite different: The ruffled hemline stops just above the knee, and the ruched sleeves offer an unusual, expensive-looking finish. No one need know it isn't the creation of some hot new designer. It will also transition so well from day into evening: You might just have to throw on a pair of tights when winter hits (see model Laura Rylands's outfit). Scroll down to shop the style.
