From Brunch To Birthday Parties, The Wrap Dress Has You Covered (Literally!)
Ok, first off let me say that wrap dresses look good on ALL women, they just do – but they do a little more for curvy women by enhancing and contouring the silhouettes of our bodies. Women love nothing more than that Marilyn Monroe feeling you get when you get that fit-to-flare look that comes from accentuating a girls waist.
That being said, Sonia and I have attended everything from Brunch to Birthday parties in wrap dresses. Most recently we decided to go for a little matchy-matchy look with these floral wrap dresses by Yumi Kim and Lilly Pulitzer to celebrate the 1st birthday of our niece, Sofie.
These designers created very similar one shoulder ruffled wrap dresses that were super fun to wear and photograph. You can see that when it comes to a wrap dresses – YOU wear the dress, not the other way around. These both have a midi length on us that is great for showing off a fabulous sandal or stiletto. These prints and fabrics made for the perfect outfit for a daytime event.
The colors of the flowers combined with the delicacy of the chiffon and the shoulder cut outs made these romantic and extra feminine we got so many compliments!
Tips And Tricks
We are not new to wrap dresses (hello DVF!) but we are new to these brands which made them even more special. The beauty of a wrap dress is you can go for any which look! Some wrap dresses can be super sexy. If that’s the look you’re going for some boob tape will be your best friend! In other instances if there is a deep neckline (and/or you tend to shy away from cleavage), a bandeau can be your best friend… it gives just the perfect amount of coverage. Finally if you are more conservative then you can put a full tank underneath for full coverage in the event that the neckline opens slightly while sitting. One hack I’ve recently been seeing on many wrap dresses is a snap button to keep the neckline in place. If the wrap dress you absolutely love doesn’t have this, it’s a fairly easy addition to put on yourself! Happy wrapping!
