The wrap dress which was often claimed to have been created by Diane Von Furstenberg has actually been around since the 1930’s. However it was DVF who made it popular when she designed her own variation of the dress in 1974. The midi-length design was made from a jersey like material and is said have been a symbol of power and sexual freedom for women back in the 70s. It is hard not to see why such a dress wouldn’t be. While this dress could be seen as work appropriate, it could also be styled in a way for women to dance the night away at Studio 54. Tied in at the waist, the dress features a woman’s figure beautifully and shows off the leg as she walks. Trust me when I say it’s not hard to feel beautiful, confident and sexy while wearing this design.
Since then, many designers have come up with their own versions of the dress such as the fashion brand REFORMATION. On their website, they state that their mission is to make effortless silhouettes that celebrate the feminine figure. While doing so, they use sustainable fabrics and vintage garments throughout their supply chain, so that their impact on the environment is less. How cool is that? However in doing so, their dresses tend to be a bit pricier, but you are investing in timeless pieces that won’t go out of style. I know the minute I laid my eyes on this beautiful rose patten dress, I fell in love.
I styled it with minimal accessories, so that the bold print would do the talking.
