If you haven’t already got a wrap dress hanging in your closet, I suggest you run out and get one ASAP because it’s a staple. You need one! You cannot afford not to have one! On days when I have no idea what to wear and I’m pressed for time, it’s one of the items that I tend to grab. It’s perfect for that business meeting, long hours at the office, that conference that you simply cannot miss or perhaps a dinner party. Elegant yet so comfortable and if comfort is a matter of importance for you then grab yourself ten of these.
A little history about the wrap dress: the wrap dress was created in 1974 by the legendary Diane Von Fürstenberg and by 1976 over a million wrap dresses had been sold. Every woman wanted one in every colour and print imaginable, it was created for the woman on-the-go, like many of us.
I wanted to create a look that was elegant and timeless because that is everything that this dress symbolises. It makes you feel like a woman and in the words of Diane Von Fürstenberg herself “feel like a woman, wear a dress”. I paired this houndstooth dress with pointy heels that were simple and did not revert the attention away from the dress. The only accessory I needed was a stunning pair of earrings and no classic look would be complete without the perfect red lip.
