SS06 Dress Trends II: Wrap Dresses
Here are two reasons why I'm lovin' the wrap dress at the moment: a. They're v flattering to one's body. b. You can wear them casually (such as lunch/ dinner out with friends,) or semi-formally (such as a nice, expensive night out.)
The first thing that comes to mind is of course the queen of wrap dresses, Diane von Furstenburg. She always manages to put fantastic prints on her dresses, thus making is not boring and totally loveable.
Eye-catching and such colors will compliment your complexions.
Also from Dvf. These are more sophisticated.
Another brand that makes amazing wrap dresses is Issa (London.) Here's a brilliant example:
Issa has got prints that I think are a bit more 'artsy' than Dvf's. Unfortunately, they are even more expensive than Dvf's!
For a cheaper option, and if you're in your teens, opt for a wrap dress that's not silk. This Free People wrap dress may not be as sophisticated as the other ones, but it's funky and def for the young. And if you notice carefully, there's actually another layer at the bottom of the dress!
Top Shop usually has a few wrap dresses in its stores. This short sleeve one is great for wearing with jeans.
Another one from Top Shop, (and one that I recently bought.) It's really slinky and I love the print.
Finally, here is how you can wear it with jeans. Remember to only wear it with skinny jean!
