The Famous Wrap Dress
There are a few styles of clothing that every woman should have in her wardrobe from season to season. While it is important to update your wardrobe by adding a few on-trend pieces to your closet each year, the fact is that trends come and go. If you invest in a few well-made, classic and timeless basics, you will have a solid wardrobe foundation filled with go-to pieces you can always reach for; these pieces will work with your transitional, seasonal and trendy pieces effortlessly. The Womens Clothes Leonard Street is a style that flatters every woman’s figure and can be worn year round.
A wrap dress features a surplice neckline and an empire waist that flatters all women. It will typically have a fit-and-flare silhouette and sometimes have a tie belt or feature a stitched mock wrap style. The empire-waist stitching falls right below the bust, giving women the illusion of a small waist. The surplice neckline draws the eye and focus up to a woman’s neck and face.
A wrap dress can come in a multitude of fabric blends and sleeve lengths. A stretchy and slinky wrap dress is ideal for the warmer months, and a ponte-knit wrap dress is a a great choice for winter. In the warm months of summer, you can pair a wrap dress with some fun espadrille wedges or flat sandals and a statement-making necklace. As the weather cools, wrap dresses can be layered under long duster cardigans and paired with tall-shaft boots and warm blanket scarves.
Wrap dresses are also ideal for business-casual office environments. They look smart, sophisticated and professional when paired with a cardigan, some pumps and some subtle jewelry. If your office has more of strict dress code, wrap dresses can also be layered over a silk shell and worn under a blazer for a polished look.
