Though the basic style is much older, the wrap dress has been a wardrobe staple since the 1970s, when Diane Von Fürstenberg first debuted her iconic interpretation. Easy to wear and flattering on every body type, it’s not hard to see why wrap dresses have maintained their popularity despite the ebb and flow of trends over the intervening decades. For spring/summer 2018, the floral wrap dress is on target to be a top trend. Wrap dresses are versatile and can easily take you from breezy day looks to classy evening wear. The tied wrap style means the fit is adjustable, so you can customize it to your figure. A wrap dress is sure to hug your curves optimally, no matter what your shape. For inspiration, we’ve compiled a handpicked list of 10 wrap dresses that will help you get your look on point this season.
1. Starry Print
This celestial print is perfect for keeping your formal wear fresh and fun. It’s a little whimsical, but still totally sophisticated. This look would be so cute for going on a date to the movies! We’d pair it with metallic gold shoes and accessories for a hint of old Hollywood glam.
2. Cut-out Stripes
We love this update on the classic wrap style! The cut-out makes it perfect for hot summer days in the sun. The stripes have a nautical feel, making this look ideal for a boat party or beachfront gathering. We’d pair with crisp white accessories and a basket-style tote.
This floral gingham print is oh so cute with just a hint of country sweetness. This dress would be perfect paired with a denim jacket and a wide brimmed sun hat for an outdoor concert or festival. If you’re headed for such an event, don’t forget your sunglasses and a good bag for toting around your essentials. A mini backpack would be an adorable addition to this outfit.
4. Long Sleeve Stripes
This long sleeve maxi is ultra-elegant and cosmopolitan. We’d wear this to an evening event at an art museum or gallery. The silhouette has a lot of presence on its own, so this look is best with very minimal accessories. For ultimate sophistication, this outfit shouldn’t be over complicated with flashy shoes or jewelry.
5. Floral Maxi
This look is ethereal and excludes an effortless femininity. The maxi length is great for more formal settings, like weddings or baby showers. The wide sleeves balance out the slightly revealing bodice and front slit, making this look dainty and demure. Pair with heeled sandals and a delicate necklace.
6. Floral Mini
This dress has all the features of the previous one with a shorter hemline for showing some leg. The yellow color is great for making your summer tan pop. We’d pair it with some simple flat sandals or espadrilles for a carefree springtime look. This can be a super casual dress, but with some glam accessories you can also rock it in a formal setting.
7. Green Floral
This is a subtle take on the wrap silhouette with a modified bodice. This dress is great for giving you the flattering fit of a wrap skirt with a less revealing neckline. This would look great with a sheer, drapery cardigan for a patio brunch or afternoon cocktail hour. When it comes to spring, pastels and other light shades usually steal the spotlight, but a deep green print can be equally stunning and seasonally appropriate. Pair your accessories with a pop of bright blue or yellow for a hint of fun color blocking.
8. Cut-out Floral
This is another modern update on the wrap silhouette. The longer hemline balances out the cut-out detail, making this a look more appropriate for more formal events, but this look can also go casual depending on the styling. The ruched detail in the bodice is flattering and super feminine. This look would be great paired with a loose, soft jacket and an oversized tote.
9. Wrap Jumpsuit
Okay, we admit this isn’t quite a dress, but it’s the perfect alternative if you want to keep the wrap silhouette while making the look a little more utilitarian. This knit jumpsuit exudes a boss babe vibe for a chic and stylish office-appropriate look. Paired with sneakers, this could also be a go-to outfit for casual settings where you still want to look sharp.
10. Floral Mini
Surprise! This floral wrap dress is actually a romper in disguise, making it another great alternative if dresses just aren’t quite your thing. Rompers are great for giving you the freedom to move in ways dresses and skirts restrict. We love this look for a picnic in the park or other outdoor gathering. You get the look of a mini dress, but you can be totally comfortable sitting on the ground or even turning a cartwheel. This look is best paired with some flat sandals and minimal accessories.
We hope this rundown of wrap dresses has given you inspiration for finding the perfect dress (or two) for the upcoming season! Find these and other great wholesale dresses only at Lush Clothing.
