Wrap Dress

Waking up to rain and cooler temperatures is not exactly what I was hoping for on Easter morning. It made me rethink what I was going to wear to mass with my family.  A short sleeved or sleeveless dress wasn't going to cut it! Among my long sleeved dresses is one of my favorites dresses ever, my DVF wrap dress.

Diane Von Furstenberg introduced the jersey wrap dress in the 1970's and it has been a classic ever since. Each season she creates her wrap dress in new fabrics and patterns. These dresses can be a bit of a splurge but will last a lifetime. The classic wrap style will never go out of style. I found my wrap dress on sale last fall and this onethis one, and this one are on sale now! If you want a less expensive version, I love this one, this one and this one.

Wrap dresses are perfect for so many situations! A wrap dress is perfect for a business casual environment, just add pumps and you are ready for work. You can even layer over a blazer to dress it up further. All the showers that seem to come up this time of year are other great times to wear a wrap dress. 

Wrap dresses are also flattering on every body type. If you have curves (like I do) the jersey fabric and wrap shape will skim over and flatter them. For those that are lacking in the curve department, you are in luck too. The tie accentuates your waist and will create some curves.
