We’re in love with the wrap dress and why wouldn’t we be?
Designed in the 1970s, the wrap dress has a rich history. Brought to life by exceptional fashion designer, Diane Von Furstenberg, the cut of this iconic dress is a style that will last lifetimes over and enjoyed by generation after generation.
Is the wrap dress flattering to most figures?
Not biased to age group or body type, the wrap dress is the most figure-flattering dress style on the market. When beautifully made, and with a stunning fabric, the wrap dress will quickly become a wardrobe essential, especially during the summer months. Our Feather & Find dresses are crafted from beautifully soft and breathable fabrics, coming in vibrant prints and colours that you will want to live in them.
So, what makes this dress look so amazing on a woman’s body, you ask?
Well, it’s the cleverly designed tie waist, V-neckline and an A-line skirt.
The tie waist gives an ultra-slimming effect as it cinches in on the slimmest part of the torso. Its v-neckline enhances the bust and slims over the hips. For this reason, it’s an excellent option for both pear shape body types as well as those looking to add curves.
If you have a shorter torso, look for wrap dresses that have more of a plunging neckline for a lengthening effect.
The fun part of the wrap dress is that you can collect a range of different cuts as well so that you can wear them through all seasons. There are stunning sleeveless options as well as long sleeve, knee-length or full length. All look amazing with leather jackets, denim jackets, ankle boots, white trainers, thongs and even to wear as a kaftan style jacket over the top of jeans and a t-shirt. Making them flattering for all figures.
Is the wrap dress suited to wear to the office as well as out on the town?
The wrap dress can be styled for a smart office look to evening chic (and everything in between!) and is perfect for women of any age. When dressing up, fabrics like silk and cotton blends should be your go-to, and for a more casual look, a jersey or knit fabric wrap dress is perfect.
It’s so exciting to see the fun patterned fabrics that are being used on these wrap dresses. Every season, amazing fashion brands are using this fantastic cut and adding some extra fun by using colours and printed fabrics to reinvent this classic dress to suit modern-day trends.
It’s easy to see why it’s been a wardrobe staple since the ’70s!
