This Is Why You Need A New Wrap Dress

by on

It's been more than 40 years since Diane von Furstenberg unveiled her first wrap dress, but the designer is still being hailed ‘the most powerful woman in fashion' thanks to her most famous creation. And for good reason. Want a ready-made outfit which will always fit and always flatter, no matter how much your weight may yoyo? That will never crease? That works in the office, on the beach and after dark? Then you need a wrap dress. "It hides every secret you want to hide," as Sarah Jessica Parker, who says she "just felt flawless" when she donned her first wrap dress on the Sex and the City set, puts it. The wrap dress's V-cut neckline elongates petite and apple shaped bodies, whilst its waist tie cinches in hourglass and pear shaped figures a treat. Worried it'll emphasise your tummy? Just tie it at the back or side, rather than the front. Scroll down for our edit of this season's best wrap dresses. You're sure to find something to suit your style and your budget...
