Ladies I tried a wrap dress and I liked it…alot!I love a dress but I know not everyone does. When it comes to choosing a dress we are spoiled for choice, but sometimes that’s the problem right. I mean, which dress is for you? Should you try a maxi, wrap, tube, shift, pinup, knit or maybe a fit n flare?
I bet you’re wondering which style suits your shape. And then there’s occasion. Can you wear it to the office AND cocktails? Will you get good dollar per wear?
Tada…the wrap dress has got you covered ladies, literally. A wrap dress is a timeless, classic piece of clothing that you absolutely do want in your wardrobe, buy the right one and you’ll have it for years. You’ll also be able to trot it again and again to all kinds of events.
Why? Well, the wrap dress gives you a waist. That’s right, it crosses under the bustline (the smallest part of your trunk) instantly giving you a waist AND it makes a gal look 5 pounds lighter.
Uh huh, I wore mine today and two people comment how ‘slimming’ my outfit was. Let’s not get all up in arms about the words ‘slimming’ or ‘flattering’, I’m cool with them and this dress does both beautifully.
Depending on how you tie your dress you can show as little or as much cleavage as you like. Keep it a little more conservative for the office or add some racey lingerie and let a little peek out. Phooaar!
A wrap dress also has you covered throughout pregnancy, weight loss or even if you have too many puddings over winter.
I’m wearing the Harlow ‘Light my Fire’ wrap dress, this little beauty has the wow factor ladies. Long sleeves, hi lo hem, pleated waist detailing (perfect for camouflaging paunch) and its black, so it’s very versatile.
Look, I wore it with a poncho for day time wear.
A pop of colour, a body lengthening tassel necklace, some knockout shoes and I could lunch with ladies or hit up the supermarket. I did the latter.
Do you like my earrings? They’re a recent purchase from Deux Earrings, a local talent.
If you wanted to switch it up a little for dinner, movies or drinks add a leather jacket (or faux leather in my case). I’ve kept the shoes, removed one necklace and kept it simple with this UBERKATE pendant that I wear daily.
Now that winter is here (tomorrow) you could even add tights and long boots, or if it’s a little warmer stick with bare legs and ankle boots. Heck, throw on a denim jacket or a wrap, add a scarf or a bold statement necklace, tailor this classic beauty to ‘you and your lifestyle’.
Once you own a quality black wrap dress you will be set for the big occasions like weddings and funerals, you know, the ones where you always spend waaay too much time wondering what to wear. Wonder no more.
You can style a wrap dress to look conservative or tweak it to be more ‘Va Va Voom, you choose.
