Preen 'Sara' leopard jacquard dress £743 at My Wardrobe >>>

How do you make a relatively simple, modest dress look striking? Easy, make it in neon jacquard! Bright, flouro yellow has been the surprise hit of the last couple of seasons, and it's still going strong in the 'Sara' dress by Preen.

By keeping the shape really simple, the designers are able to experiment with colour and texture without this dress looking too over the top - look closely and you'll see this is actually leopard print, in neon yellow on nude, with reverse print sleeves. That should be overkill, but the high neck, elbow length sleeves knee-length hem keep it looking chic, not cheap.

The colour might not be for everyone, but if you're going to try neon this is definitely an extravagant, eye-catching way to do it!
