The Wrap Dress

At the request of a dear reader I have put together an outfit that is flattering on any body shape.
 
The wrap dress is a universally flattering look. Popularized by Diane von Furstenburg in the 1970s, and inspired by her divorce, the design has been credited as a symbol of the women’s liberation movement. This iconic style has even been been on display at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
The wrap dress has several key factors that make it functional and flattering on any body type. 
 
The “V” neck style elongates the torso while the wrap cinches the waistline. For the oval and rectangle shapes this helps create that visual waistline and gives the illusion of an hourglass silhouette. The “A” line skirt camouflages the lower half for the triangle shapes and adds balance and fullness for the inverted triangle. And for those who already have a natural hourglass shape, this style hugs and enhances your curves.
 
The next time you are looking for a dress, wrap yourself in one of these beauties. It’s a style that will last for years to come!

Cheers!
