There isn’t a single woman in the world that a wrap dress (or wrap concept for that matter) looks bad on. As we enter transition season, we’re learning that this piece is key for comfort as the weather changes.
If you know your fashion history, you know that the famous “wrap dress” is usually connected to the legendary Diane Von Furstenbrg. While she may not have “invented it,” she definitely modernized it. According to Linen Handmade Studio, “First-ever wrap dresses were designed by Elsa Schiaparelli in the 1930s and by Claire McCardell in the 1940s. They were also popular during the Great Depression as women wore house dresses called “Hooverettes” with a similar silhouette. Later on, the design was reinvented by Diane von Furstenberg. She used colorful jersey fabric to make her long sleeve wrap dress. It became so popular that by the end of 1975 production has reached 15,000 dresses per week.”
It’s 2021, and we’re still loving the wrap design. It hugs any body just right!
Take a look at some examples I’m wearing here. This design can be seen in dresses and rompers now.
Are you thinking about wrapping up summer in these wrap examples?
