Meet your new summertime staple: the wrap dress! Dresses are always a great choice for summer and this trending piece takes the cake. This style of dress is comfortable and oh so flattering, you just can’t beat them! I have been wearing this look non stop and have been loving it.
Having the wrap around feature and the tie which nips in at your smallest point, your waist, makes these dresses universally flattering. You may have to try on a few to get the right fit but this style looks great on just about anybody. The wrap covers your mid section beautifully and the tie belt distracts the eye. You waist will look TINY in this style, thank goodness for that, am I right?!
I would wear wrap dresses all the dang time if I could. They are perfect for the day or night time. For the day, I chose to rock a maxi style. It has a low v-neck to show some skin because my legs are covered (which means no shaving, yay). It is a common misconception that maxi styles don’t work for petite girls. I am 5’2 and am obsessed with long dresses. There are ones out there that won’t overwhelm your shorter stature, I promise! Maxi dresses will actually make you appear taller if the fit is right.
Look for cotton or breathable fabrics to keep you cool for your hot summer festivities. Finish the look off with your favorite pair of sandals or wedges to keep you functional during your busy day.
For night, I chose a slinky number with a high slit. The amount of skin shown makes it perfect for a sexy cocktail party but the neutral color palette keeps it chic. Seek out fabric that has a bit of shine to make you the star of the show. It will catch the light beautifully in flash photography. Stilettos worn with this look will keep the scorch factor high.
These dresses are everywhere right now so you will have no trouble finding your perfect wrap match. Just try to remain humble when you get TONS of compliments on your outfit choice. Make sure to shop all my top picks down below! Are you loving this trend as much as I am?
