Boy do I love the wrap dress. Every time I wear a wrap dress, I admire both its elegance and how easy it is to wear. It’s a simple design that flatters a curvy body wonderfully. I found a few dresses that will look marvelous in the winter months and great for your “fat” day. I wear my wrap dress when I don’t feel as fit as usual. I always feel it is a forgiving, charming, and flirty dress.
My first feature is a lovely pepper green dress from Venus. This is an affordable and very festive wrap dress that you can wear year round, and you will definitely get a lot of mileage from it during the holiday season. Dress it up or down. Either way you will feel confident wearing it.

I love the old school Versace chain prints and the Roberto Cavalli look. Therefore, I also love the original wrap dress, madam Diane von Furstenberg’s chain red wrap dress. Its sexy print and color give it an ultra-sultry look that works perfectly for a sizzling cocktail party. This dress is electrifying. You should wear simple, bold gold pieces with this dress. Avoid anything too complicated looking.

Next up is a gorgeous color combination wrap dress. The deep blue combination is gorgeous and striking. This dress does not need accessories. You can pair this dress with booties for an extra fashion statement.

And now, a cascading, sophisticated wrap dress. I absolutely adore this dress, but I would avoid this dress if you are on the shorter side or if you are tall but have short legs. You must be on the taller side to show off its distinct style. If you are tall but not curvy, then you should definitely try this dress.

Finally, this last feature is a wrap dress that I can actually wear to a work function! I find it difficult to keep “my girls” fully tucked in, so I cannot wear most wrap dresses to work functions. However, this faux draped wrap dress makes it possible for me to go into the office in style. The dress covers my assets and keeps them a well kept secret.
