The wrap dress has been through a lot over it’s 40 year lifespan and this season they’re more sexy and stylish than ever. From divine prints and fabrics, deep plunging necklines and thigh-high slits, the wrap dress is no longer just a work staple — it’s the perfect dress for every occasion, from dates to weddings to casual weekend brunching, or in this case, an easy go-to number that makes you feel like a goddess, even worn with converse.
There’s a reason wrap dresses have been a classic choice for so long now — they’re probably one of the most flattering silhouettes ever made and great for a variety of body types to boot. It’s one of the hardest working staples in most woman’s wardrobes, holding a true iconic status for over 40 years. Famously invenvented by the legend that is Diane von Furstenberg in 1974, gurl made the unicorn of dresses by creating something flattering, versatile, easy to wear and style. It’s no wonder that the wrap dress has played such a huge role in fashion and generations of woman to come.
It takes a pretty magnificent dress that will take you from car to bar, corner shop to cocktail party and this Boden wrap dress does just that in spades. With one swift change of the shoes (and jewellery if you’re in the mood) you are ready for anything. I was getting ready in a rush and wanted something to chuck on with my Chuck Taylors to run around town with. Who knew that a dress can hold the power to make you feel so sexy, even though you are sans makeup and think you’re dressing on down time. These dresses can work miracles ya’ll!
