Thanks to Diane von Furstenberg the wrap dress has become a style icon. I mean no disrespect to DVF but the darling wrap dress becomes more like saran wrap gone awry on many of us.
No matter how loosely you wrap the little bugger it has no qualms about outing your rolls of padding. And who hasn’t revealed more than a comfortable share of cleavage while leaning in for a better angle at something?
Then there is the chance that your wrap ties get caught on a conference room chair as you stand up from the chair and, well, unwrap. (Now, I’ll admit that is a one in a million debacle and having been that “one” I can assure you that your chances of having this happen to you are now greatly diminished!)
But still that classic wrap has some great things going for it — those coveted long or 3/4 sleeves; the generous hem length; and the easy peasy throw it on and look “done” silhouette.
Yes, well, one indulgent sushi takeout dinner later and I am desperate for a wrap dress alternative that doesn’t put my sodium intake center stage.
