wrap it up!
reason #1. creates/highlights instant waist line
i don’t know about you but my eye goes right to Kim’s tiny waist with this wrap dress!
reason #2. creates hourglass figure
so you and i both know that Gweneth is not known for a curvacious body. but this wrap dress gives her the perfect illusion of an hourglass figure.
reason #3. beautiful v- neckline
opening up the decolletage area (especially in a v-shape) instantly creates a slimming effect by leading the eye vertically down our body instead of across.
how incredible does Rihanna look in this hot v-neck wrap?!
as amazing as wrap dresses are, there are some things you should look out for, to look your absolute best in them!
things to beware of:
- heavy fabric/hem length – what a difference fabric can make. above, you saw Kim wearing a light weight wrap dress looking sleek + slim, but this crushed velvet number adds a lot of weight to her frame… no bueno!
i would have also gone with a shorter hemline for her here. the hemline of this dress creates a dowdy feel.
- too baggy fit – the number 1 rule in style applies just as heavily to wrap dresses as it does with everything else. if you have excess fabric draping off your body, you look bigger. period.
my pregnant friend Jenny, also wanted me to add that wrap dresses are a great, comfy staple when pregnant also.
talk about versatility!
got any wrap dresses in your closet?
i’d love to hear your thoughts on wrapping it up, so do tell!
