The wrap dress is a timeless style of dress which is incredibly versatile and flattering, making it a firm favourite in many people’s wardrobes.
Its origins date back to 1974 when it was created by the fashion designer Diane Von Furstenberg.
It’s flattering for women of all body types as the tie waist emphasises your waist and the neckline can be adjusted to allow for full cleavage control.
The adjustability that it offers means it can be worn in so many different ways, making it incredibly versatile and suitable for any occasion. Whether it’s for a night out or a casual day dress, the wrap dress can always be relied upon.
The way you wear and style a wrap dress can really make it look different from one outfit to another. In this post we’ll explore 5 different ways you can wear a wrap dress this autumn.
Dressed Up With Heels
With party season fast approaching, you’re going to need a dress to wear out-out. The good news is you can dress a wrap dress up with heels to create the perfect night out look. An LBD is a go-to style for a night out that simply never goes out of fashion. Choose a black mini wrap dress like one from Dancing Leopard and wear it with neutral-coloured heels and a bag to complete the look.
Worn Open With Jeans
If you want a laid back but super stylish look then wearing your wrap dress open with jeans and a bodysuit can really deliver. It’s also ideal if you’re not usually a dress wearer but still want to join in on the wrap dress trend. Team a maxi or midi wrap dress worn open or loosely tied with skinny jeans and a pair of heels to create a stylish autumn look.
With a Jacket & Trainers
For a casual daytime look, you can’t go wrong with wearing a wrap dress with a jacket and trainers. It’s a simple yet stylish look that’s perfect for transitional autumn weather. We’d recommend pairing white trainers with a denim jacket to create a comfortable on-trend look.
With a Turtleneck
When the weather gets colder, layering a wrap dress with a turtleneck can really help to make the outfit warmer without compromising on style. It’s the perfect way to transform your favourite summer dress into a trendy winter look. Ensure the turtleneck isn’t too thick as it can end up looking bulky under your dress, and keep it a neutral colour so it doesn’t take the attention away from your dress. Black is a popular choice that works well for most outfits.
With Knee High Boots
Knee-high boots offer the perfect choice of footwear for autumn fashion and the beauty is they can be worn with just about anything. When teaming them with a wrap dress opt for a mini length dress which allows you to show a tiny bit of leg for a stylish look. We’d recommend investing in a pair you can wear year after year.
