It’s been more than 40 years since Diane von Furstenberg unveiled her most famous creation. Now, you can shop wrap dresses online anywhere, anytime…
Want a ready-made outfit which will always be flattering no matter how much your weight may yo-yos? A piece that will never crease! That works in the office, on the beach and after dark? Then you need a wrap dress.
“It hides every secret you want to hide,” as Sarah Jessica Parker, who says she “just felt flawless” when she donned her first wrap dress on the Sex and the City set, puts it.
The wrap dress’s V-cut neckline elongates petite and apple shaped bodies, whilst its waist tie cinches in hourglass and pear shaped figures a treat. Worried it’ll emphasise your tummy? Just tie it at the back or side, rather than the front.
