Wrap Dressing

When it comes to the most versatile summer dresses, there’s one style that has it wrapped up. Literally. The first image that springs to mind when thinking of the wrap dress is the iconic DVF wrap jersey style. But this summer we’re rediscovering the wrap in a more feminine, floaty and, most surprisingly for us, floral way.

We love how this style can work over jeans, worn open as a kimono or solo. It’s brilliantly bump and breastfeeding friendly, and also more forgiving than a fitted dress allowing a bit of leeway if you’ve overindulged on the rose summer lunches. Plus, you don’t have to pack it away once the summer has ended, just layer up a polo neck and boots and hey presto, winter wrap dressing sorted. It’s fast becoming the hardest working dress in our wardrobes. Here’s how we’re wearing ours …

  1. I love wrap dressing! It can give you different style when you take it as dress, kimino or solo. It’s amazing. You can have one cloth but have three different ways.
