As a 26-year-old I did not think this time last year that I would soon be obsessed with the wrap dress. The style, renowned for being the most flattering dress there is, has recently undergone a total revamp and what was once a just a ladylike office-appropriate look is now one of the coolest, sexiest dresses out there.
Thanks to a new raft of cult brands such as Attico and Realisation Par with their slinky, silky printed numbers, the wrap style has been a total Insta-sensation, thanks to bloggers and stylists picking up on this cult trend and making it cool again. And, we're over the moon that the high street has also taken on this trend and run with it. Zara’s got all the super-chic long sleeved, ruffled hem silk editions while H&M keeps it shorter in length with plenty of puffed sleeve details which are super fun.
Even the iconic DVF wrap dresses which we’ve loved for years have undergone a total revamp under the helm of designer Jonathan Saunders. Still chic and flattering, they now incorporate his signature cool-girl prints and riskier necklines which now also appeal to a younger market.
I can honestly say, no matter what your shape, size or age, there really is a wrap dress out there for you - choose carefully, and the right wrap dress will see you through every single occasion you've got in the diary this summer. Scroll through the gallery below to find your perfect style.
*STYLING TIP* If the occasion's not right to wear your wrap dress, wear yours undone as a robe with jeans and a tee for a more casual look. 2 outfits in one!
