You probably own that perfect dress that is no longer the perfect style for your body. After all, not many people have the same body at age 30, 40 or 50 that they had when they were 18 or 21. You hold onto that dress, remembering all the good times you had in it. We don’t judge! But we do have a dress that looks good on every body, height, figure and skin tone. Keep reading to find out what dress works on absolutely every woman!
Sometimes we have favorite designers that never change with age. You may like their cuts, their prints or the general styling they use in making their garments. A good dress never goes out of fashion, but your body may no longer be up for that plunging neckline or open back. The solution? The wrap dress!
Designers such as Donna Karan and Diane von Furstenberg have long created beautiful silhouettes with their fashionable wrap dresses. These dresses come in a variety of materials, prints and lengths, but one thing remains the same- a size 0 can wear them, and so can a size 18. What other dress could possibly manage this feat?
The miracle of the wrap dress is that it hugs where you want it to and glides over the parts you want to detract from. If you have a little bit of a belly, it doesn’t matter: the wrap dress hides it. Are your arms too skinny or big for your liking? You can wear the three quarter length style to deter people from looking at those spots that aren’t your favorites.
The wrap dress often has a belt that ties around the dress itself, giving the illusion of a waist, whether you have one or not! The belt, typically made of the same material and in the same print, also lends itself as a point of interest that gives your look visual appeal that keeps eyes moving. No one will focus on one part of you, because the whole look is fantastic!
Look for wrap dresses in materials like woven silk, cashmere or wool jersey for Fall. Check out more terrific looks for inspiration on the Donna Karan and DvF websites! Also look at any clothing or department store, because there are wraps of all types and price points! You can easily find quirky and playful prints, cool and clean solids for work and beaded detailing that is perfect for a night out.
