Fashion Obsession: The Wrap Dress

The wrap dress has been a classic and iconic style for decades. Diane Von Furstenburg has been credited with 'inventing' it in 1972, although earlier versions of the wrap dress can be seen in 1930's and 40's collections as well. The style grew in popularity throughout the 70's as a symbol of women's liberation, and continues to be popular today. The flattering cut of the wrap dress highlights a woman's curves and hugs the body in all the right places. This dress can also be a great style for the office, and an easy one piece look you can throw on in the morning. Below are some of my favorite wrap dresses this season, in a variety of fabrics and styles.

1. The Polka Dot Wrap Dress

This charming jersey dress has personality, and a vintage feel. The flattering faux wrap style and mock collar keeps this dress professional and perfect for the office.

3. The Little Black Wrap Dress

A classic black wrap dress is a must-have for every professional woman. This will be your go-to look when you do not have time to think through your morning outfit. Perfect to pair with elegant jewelry and a colorful tote.

4. The Colorful Wrap Dress 


Although the wrap dress is a classic style, this does not mean it has to be boring. A colorful print is a great way to liven up the wrap dress and transition from winter to spring. I love this Lilly Pulitzer wrap dress with a bright pattern and true wrap style.

2. The Printed Wrap Dress 

FELICITY & COCO Print Jersey Dress

I love a print for the office that has neutral tones to keep it professional. This grey wrap dress with a hint of blue has flattering three quarter length sleeves and a soft, comfortable fabric.


5. The Full Skirt Wrap Dress

Take your wrap dress style up a notch with an full skirt. This dress is slightly more formal and fun with a pleated skirt that really makes a statement. The fabric is also 100% cotton, making it cool and comfortable for spring.

If you do not have a wrap dress in your closet, definitely add it to your wish list. This style flatters almost everyone, and there are so many fabrics and styles to choose from. Leave your comments for Polished Pinstripes below!
