CLOSET STAPLE - THE WRAP DRESS

I personally believe that every woman needs a wrap dress or two in her closet, not only because it is universally flattering but also because, like the shift dress, it has been around for quite some time and has serious staying power.  Diane Von Furstenburg is without a doubt the queen of the wrap dress, she reintroduced the wrap dress in the 1970’s, revived it in 1997 and made it cool with her funky prints and eye catching patterns. 

Wrap dresses have always been a  staple in my closet, I love how versatile and comfortable they are and I always feel super confident every time I wear one. This faux wrap dress is one of my favorite, the silhouette is so feminine and flattering and it’s really light and airy; perfect for the heat and humidity here in the Islands. I find myself reaching for one so many occasions, and I always get so many compliments when I'm wearing them. 

This type of dress is an excellent option for all women and can be worn to various occassions; work, everyday wear, special events etc. The key to the perfect wrap dress is choosing the right fit and fabric for your body. Do any of you own wrap dresses? What are your thoughts on them?

  4. Girl I can really say you have made shopping fun for me now. Before I hated shopping yea I know what's wrong with me right. First I was never one to wear dress at all. So no I don't own a wrap dress but now am starting to wear dresses so I would definitely put that on my list to buy. Thanks a lot.
