The Belgian-American fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg had said that the wrap dress will become an icon and a timeless piece. How right she was. She created this model and cut way back in the 1970s and since then, the wrap dress has been reinvented almost every summer again and again, tucked, nipped, and played upon by many designers including von Furstenberg herself.
A wrap dress is a must have for virtually every woman. There are good reasons for this, of course. They are easy to wear, incredibly versatile, and extremely flattering for all body types. You can wear it with your statement earring and heels, or wear a wrap dress with flip flops. You can wear the dress even in the winter, like for example a velvet wrap dress, but this is one iconic piece that I feel looks the best and is the most practical in the summer. Plus, it’s so feminine and trendy too. Pair it with a flirty top and shorts or skirt and its going to look great on you surely.
This year is not likely to be any less hot, so you need something comfortable. Here are some awesome ways of wearing the wrap dress this summer. Check them out.
Wrap Dress With Gladiator Sandals
Wear your classic wrap dress with a pair of gladiator sandals. It’s going to be a cool outfit for the summer, perfect casual dressing or may be a summer vacation trip.
Flower Wrap Dress
Here’s a wrap dress that is a perfect choice for baby showers and wedding showers. You can wear it quickly too for a last-minute brunch invite.
Strawberry Print Wrap Dress
Here’s a strawberry print wrap dress that is just wow. I find this extremely cute, and I am sure that you too are going to love its playful floral design. This dress has crisscross straps on the backside, which is a good idea.
Transitional Wrap Dress
Wrap dresses can be mini too, like this one here. It’s a good transitional piece. You can wear this piece during the spring and summer, and pair the dress with boots and sheer tights, for the fall and winter. Bell sleeves add a great finishing touch.
Polka Dot Wrap Dress
Here’s one more idea for you. This polka dot dress is really cute, and it adds the right kind of retro vibe as well. The ruffled trim here is so feminine, and fun. And yes, you can dress down with flats and a denim jacket when you wear this.
Wrap Dress Trends For This Season
What are going to be the hottest wrap dress trends this summer? In my opinion, the following are all set to rule this year –
1. Mini wrap summer dresses
2. Midi wrap summer dresses
3. Maxi wrap summer dresses
4. Long sleeves, cap sleeves, and spaghetti sleeves
The midi style is the most versatile if you ask me. It looks great in the office when you wear it with midi heels, flat pointed toe shoes, and flat sandals. It can translate later into a cocktail dress as well if you pair it with stilettos. Pair it with espadrilles or sneakers for the weekend.
