Let the countdown to summer begin! “One of the easiest ways to freshen up your wardrobe for Summer is trying out the season’s biggest trends”… says every fashion blog and style newsletter. But only a handful of styles suit a range of bodies. That’s when you opt for a narrower approach. Like the classic and ever-so-flattering wrap dress. I know I sound biased because I only own one body but let me tell you, I don’t know any other fit that can both make my waist small and my shape feminine because believe it or not, I have very minimal curves…
Have you ever stepped in to a Diane Von Furstenburg store or better yet, have you ever watched House of DVF? The reference to the wrap dress is one of the strongest most consistent style approaches ever spoken. Naturally, darling, it’s because it’s shape goal is to bring in the waist and let the rest gently fall over your thighs, legs and even ankles if it’s a maxi. The neckline draws a secret arrow to your waist and presents your chest in such a way that even the help of a bra is unlikely. The small of your back is quite sensual but is often forgotten in cheap fabrics and poorly cut shapes. The wrap dress naturally shapes this area with it’s built-in belt creating definition that challenges the overly alluded talk of the derriere.
