SS06 Dress Trends II: Wrap Dresses

So technically, wrap dress isn't exactly the new thing to have or a hot trend, but I have just recently discovered it's amazing versatility. And since dresses are all the rage this season, basically wear a dress and you're automatically 'fashionable', (not to be confused with stylish)

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!

I especially like the one you bought! It looks a bit shorter and so I think it would be cuter over jeans than a longer dress (like the green one.) Great print and neutral colors.

Hear, hear!

I'm sure you'll wear your lovely new dress often.

More raves for wrap dresses: they are forgiving of weight gain and loss, and many are suitable for women of many ages, so are great investment pieces.

I just bought two DVF dresses, the palm vine print you've shown in turquoise (but mine is black with neutral palms) and a black cap sleeve 'Sava' dress. And I hope to wear them for years to come!

I don't find wrap dresses at all flattering, they're so pretty though.

dresses over jeans were a trend from 2-3 years ago. it was awful then and even worse now since it's not even in style anymore.

its not with what is in fashion, its own personal style n preference. i think the dresses over jeans, some look extremly nice but it has to go with the right dress, or it can look horrible

i have never myself worn dresses over jeans, but i think it looks vert pretty

dont be such a fashion slave! wear whatever you like!
