With every season change comes a desire for renewal. And when it comes to our closets, there isn’t a more exciting time for metamorphosis than Springtime! Just as the flowers and spring buds begin to bloom and blossom in the sunlight, so does our desire for color, flowery prints, and feminine dresses. In one way or another, Springtime is all about movement and freedom, about liberating the inner aspect of ourselves that just wants to dance. There’s no better closet staple to help you stand out and shine in the Springtime than a classic wrap dress. Wrap dresses are flattering for any and all body types and they can be dressed up or down for any occasion. Whether you’re attending a garden party, heading to the office, or grabbing a coffee with your friend, wrap dresses are stylish and comfortable. Here is what you should look for in the perfect Springtime wrap dress!
Opt for an A -Line Sundress
The A-line cut looks good on anyone, and it will flatter any and all body shapes. Regardless whether your body shape is more athletic or you’re an hourglass shape, the flared hemline balances an apple shape, slims heavier hips, and creates a nice silhouette.
Look for a V Neckline
A V-neckline can flatter your bust, collar, and shoulders. If you have a shorter torso, a plunging neckline can give you a lengthening effect, while also highlighting your bust.
Get a Tie Waist
An A-line wrap dress with a tie waist will accentuate your curves, offer an ultra slimming effect and help create the illusion of a smaller waist. A wrap dress offers a loose and flowy silhouette, so it can really benefit the curves, whether you want to accentuate what you have or add to it!
Add Coverage As Necessary
Wrap dresses are timeless, and give you the option to adjust sleeves and hems, regardless of your age. If you want to highlight your toned and long arms, go for a shorter sleeve or try a knee length hemline for more coverage. If you want to give an appearance of long slim legs, you can opt for shorter length hems.
Look for the Right Fabric
Whether you’re going to an event like a wedding or need a smart office look, fabric can be the key that unlocks your style. A silk wrap dress works great for fancier or classier occasions, while cotton, jersey, and knit fabric works for a more casual look. Thinner fabrics will also accentuate the body more, while heavier and bulkier materials can cover areas that don’t feel flattering.
Spice It Up With Accessories
If you want to draw more attention to the upper body, go for adding accessories like layered necklaces or scarves. You can also pair belts and jackets with a wrap dress to add more attention to the waist, or highlight your curves.
Play With Color
Wrap dresses are the perfect opportunity to add a pop of color to your wardrobe, especially during the Springtime! Whether you want to experiment with bolder colors, patterns or shapes the wrap dress offers endless options to create a more playful, romantic, and feminine weekend look.
