Every summer there comes along one hit dress. This summer it’s the wrap dress. It hides a multitude of sins, makes for an ideal quick change and getting dressed in the morning feels like slipping into your dressing gown only to realise upon looking in the mirror that you’re super chic and among fashion’s finest. Plus, we’re already planning our autumnal transition style (it’s never too early), layering our jeans and leggings underneath. It’s comfortable, it’s reliable, surprisingly versatile. Guys, need I really say more?
The thing is, every so often a certain dress style comes along that is timeless and classic. It’s that one piece that looks great on everyone and lasts for seasons to come. This is exactly the status the wrap dress has achieved since first coming onto the style scene through fashion designer icon, Diane Von Furstenberg 45 years ago. Admittedly, it’s had a slight facelift since its first appearance with today’s designers taking modern twists with prints, hemlines and cool textures. A true fashionista understands that a good dress does the talking for you. The wrap dress does just that and so much more. Whether keeping things silly yet sophisticated with a midi length set for an evening on the dancefloor or soaking up the sun in a mini version, trust us on this one, your summer wardrobe calls for little else than a few key wrap dresses.
The French brand Rouje, has one particular wrap dress – the Gabin – that’s a safe bet but if you can’t get your hands on that (it sells out A LOT) no need to panic, we’ve got your summer style sussed with these top wrap dress picks straight from the high street.
