Thanks to the Kardashians, it seems like we’re all starting to believe that we have to wear skin-tight, super short dresses. This is not the case, and unless working out is basically your job, it might not be super flattering. Enter the wrap dress, universally flattering and so comfortable. They come in just about every length, pattern and colour, so you’re bound to find a wrap dress you love and one that looks great on you. Here are five for a little inspiration.
1. REFORMATION SILK WRAP MAXI DRESS
Get it at Net-a-Porter for $502
This dress is subtly sexy, thanks to the deep blue colour and floor-skimming length. Pair it with strappy silver sandals, a long necklace, and tie your hair in a low ponytail, and you’ll look like a million bucks. Perfect for any lingering holiday parties.
2. WRAP DRESS
Get it at H&M for $30
This is such a pretty pattern, and since it has black on a pastel background, it’s still winter-appropriate. The frill along the neckline is so pretty, too. Wear this one with a pair of opaque black tights and cute ankle boots.
3. EMBODIMENT OF EFFORTLESS WRAP DRESS
Get it at ModCloth for $81
A cross between a slip dress and a wrap dress, this frock would look great under a blazer or even a turtleneck underneath it. The colour is really special, too, and will look great no matter your skin tone. It’s a great alternative to the red most people reach for this time of year.
4. ABASI DRESS
Get it at Club Monaco for $495
This dress looks worthy of a safari. Camel is such a trendy colour right now, and so is a kimono shape, and this dress has both. Wear it over skinny jeans with dark blue ankle boots for an unexpected cold-weather look.
5. WRAP MAXI DRESS
Get it at Banana Republic for $156
The length on this dress could offer a little more warmth when the temperature drops, but the pattern keeps it light and whimsical. Pair this one with a jean jacket and knee-high boots for an urban-meets-country look, then with oxblood velvet pumps for a party look.
