Here Are 7 Reasons to Love Wrap-Style Dresses
Posted: Aug 06 2016 by Lookbook Store
Clothing styles come and go. Over the years, we’ve seen a lot of styles that have made huge comebacks. Flared jeans, for example, are making waves in the fashion world again. Similarly, off-shoulders, crop tops, high-waist bottoms and halter styles, among many others, are also becoming a hot thing again.
But then, there are clothing styles that have always been there. One of them is the wrap-style dress. From maxis to minis, this type of clothing has never really went out of style. This is why it is loved by many women and fashion designers alike. In fact, prominent personalities, like the Duchess of Cambridge, the first lady of the United States and many more celebrities, can be seen sporting this dress type on various occasions.
But what really makes wrap dresses iconic? Here are seven reasons why they are quite popular for several generations now:
Ensures the perfect fit
Whether a size 0 or size 24, a wrap dress will still fit perfectly and give the illusion of a smaller waistline, thanks to its defined waistband and bow knot detailing. This means that any woman, regardless of size and shape can rock a wrap-style frock anytime, anywhere, be it for date night, clubbing or a social event.
For a romantic date with your beau…
For partying with your friends…
For social gatherings…
Creates a curvier silhouette
What a lot of women love about wrap dresses is that they can disguise the areas that they want hidden, especially the midsection. Bulges can be concealed with a wrap-style frock, especially when you choose the right print or style. Aside from that, these types of dresses can provide the illusion of a more defined waistline. This gives any woman a curvier, sexier silhouette.
You can dress up wrap dresses or pare them back, depending on what you wear them with. A wrap mini can be worn as a top with jeans and strappy sandals for a casual chic look. You can wear them with any footwear, too, be it heels, boots or even sneakers. Wrap-style wonders can also be used for the office, at a party, for a dinner date, at a wedding or at the mall. In fact, there’s not too many places where you can’t don these classic pieces.
Whether it’s winter, summer, spring or fall, these timeless pieces can be your go-to outfit. On a chilly day, pair a wrap-style number with knee-high boots and a coat to keep you warm and cozy while out and about. In summer, opt for a sleeveless wrap dress that’s short enough to keep you cool and ready to beat the heat. So, no matter the season, you’ll always find something that will suit the weather and of course, your taste.

If you’ve always shied away from wrap dresses because you think they’re so complicated to wear, here’s a how-to guide to help make life easier.
- Loose the knot of the dress to untie it.
- Wear the wrap dress one sleeve at a time. Then, allow it to hang freely.
- Look for the slit on the side seam, which can be located on the left or right, depending on how the dress was designed. But usually, this can be found on the right side of the frock.
- Pull the tie firmly but gently on the left side of the dress. Once you have the tie in your hand, insert its end into the side slit of the wrap dress and pull it.
- Place the right side of the dress over the left while holding the tie closest to you in your left hand.
- With your right hand, grab the right tie and insert it through the slit.
- Tie the knot by crossing the ribbon at the center of your back holding it firmly so as not to drop it.
- Pull the ties to the front of the dress tying the free ends in a bow know at front or side, depending on your preference.
