Silk Blend Wrap Dresses
Aside from being a beautiful fabric, silk is strong, resistant to stains and very soft and easy to wear. When mixed with other natural fibres, silk is breathable. Silk-blended fabric is perfect for the wrap design because it is hypoallergenic, can absorb moisture without feeling wet and has a slight natural stretch. For a fabric that will be worn close to your body, these features become even more important. Fabrics that blend cotton with silk retain the practical features and are also more affordable.Wrap Dresses
Wrap dresses are among the most flattering styles of women’s dresses with a style to suit every body shape. With careful selection of style and fabric, this style can be dressed up or down no matter the occasion.Wrap Dress Design
Wrap dresses are wrapped across the front of the body and normally fixed at the side with a tie, button or similar fastening. Faux wrap dresses are made to resemble the wrapped style, but are sewn closed. Designer Diane Von Furstenberg helped to popularise the design, showing wrap dresses with almost exclusively knee length skirts and long sleeves. There are many more choices these days. Designs range from short, sexy party dresses and maxi dresses, to office-appropriate knee-length options.Choosing a Wrap Dress
Wrap dresses look fantastic on almost any body shape, as they can be pulled tight or left loose to complement each figure. Wrap dresses can be adjusted to cover or reveal cleavage, and can go from a job interview to a date night with just a change of accessories. The most important considerations are length, print and fabric choice. For a versatile dress, a plain colour in a sturdy fabric that falls to just below the knee will suit most occasions. Maxi-length wrap dresses are summery and dramatic, and a print can make them stand out even more. Mini-length wrap dresses can be chosen in an eye-catching fabric and worn as a party or occasion dress.How to Wear Your Wrap Dress
If you are concerned about showing too much skin, a camisole that is matched to an accent colour on the dress is a simple but beautiful way to cover up. A pair of heels and some statement jewellery makes your wrap dress perfect for occasions. Make sure that your dress fits you well, especially across the bust.
