Wrapped around your body:the wrap dress.
designer Diane von Fürstenberg invented a dress in the 70’s that was completely
open in the front and that was only held together by a smart kind of wrapping
technique, she surely didn’t expect the massive success that the so-called wrap
dress would soon have. It turned out to be such a pioneer of style, that it
soon became – similar to Coco Chanel’s little black dress – an absolute classic
in the wardrobe of every fashion-conscious lady. But in contrast to Chanel’s dress, which is the ultimate choice for
elegant occasions, the wrap dress is more a classic for the office and daily
life. Additionally, this dress,
which can artfully be wrapped around the body with a sewed on cotton belt, is
truly figure-flattering and hence a style-favourite for everyone who wants to
look great quickly and without a lot of fuzz.
How figure-flattering: the
Because of the wrapping
technique of this dress, there are some exciting gathers that skilfully cover
up the problem areas, especially around the tummy and the hips. Hence, wrap dresses, especially with long
sleeves or three-quarter sleeves, are very popular, especially with women,
wearing clothes bigger than size 10. In the selection of wrap
dresses by Ana Alcazar you will find all the pieces from size 6 to size
16. In addition to the classic wrap dress, which is wrapped at the hips, we
also have some more extraordinary cuts, super-long belts or dresses with a
wraparound-look with an extra belt. And also when it comes to fabrics, there’s
nothing left to be desired: Be amazed by our colourful print wrap dresses with
big flower- or ornament prints; and for a Sunday walk by the lake, the perfect
choice is a beautiful marine look with white and blue or white and red wrap
dresses made from Ajour knitwear.
Wrapped up – Wrap dresses
at Ana Alcazar.
Wrap dresses are
uncomplicated and ready to wear in daily life. Just put it on, wrap it up and feel good. There are only a couple
of styling tips that you should remember when you are wearing a wrap dress. The
result of the special wrapping technique is often a rather wide V-neck. Ladies
with a little more curves up there and all the women who follow the motto less is more are advised to just wear a
tight top underneath their wrap dress to be on the safe side.
Furthermore, classic wrap dresses are more suitable for daily life than for
special occasions like receptions or weddings. In these cases, if you don’t
want to go without the characteristic gathers, it is better to wear a fine
dress with a wraparound look (but without the actual wrapping), which you can
of course also find here in our Ana Alcazar online shop. And if you
should have any further questions concerning our pieces of clothing, sizes or
materials, you can get in touch with our service team in Munich at all times.
