Diane von Furstenberg invented the wrap dress in 1974 and it’s been a classic wardrobe staple ever since. And no wonder as it ticks so many sartorial boxes: it’s universally flattering with its v-neck neckline and ability to both hug and skim over the body in just the right places; it’s versatile in that it can be worn for work or play; it’s ultra wearable and requires almost zero styling effort—just tie it and you’re set.
Whilst the wrap dress has been in many women’s style arsenal for decades it has received a resurgence in popularity of late with updates such as ruffles, modern prints, cold shoulder detailing and everything from balloon to trumpet sleeves. When in luxe fabrications such as velvet or satin it can easily become the perfect outfit option for an evening event. It’s also easily paired with almost every style of shoe in your wardrobe from sneakers to sandals and heels. If you’ve yet to add one to your wardrobe then it’s time to pop it onto your shopping list. I promise you’ll be wearing it to death over the next few months.
