Pret Reporteur: That’s A Wrap

November 4, 2013 • Magazine, Pret Reporteur


It never fails, despite how many articles of clothing sit in our closets, we inevitably find ourselves with nothing to wear at the worst time. In these moments of panic, it’s so easy for us to forget the one frock that can solve all our dilemmas. The wrap dress has been a quintessential part of a woman’s wardrobe since Diane von Furstenberg introduced it to the world. The elegantly casual dress is fit for any occasion, from an important meeting in the boardroom, to a dinner party. Thus, it should be your go-to attire when you find yourself short of outfits.

Of course, the wrap dress has undergone many makeovers since its 70’s debut. The silhouette and construction remains the same, but it has been modernized in fabrics of tweed and silk, embellished with leather trimmings, and its hemline raised and lowered. Don’t believe us? Here are six wrap dresses that prove just how versatile a wrap dress can be.

1. Diane von Furstenberg Wrap Dress – Freddie Snake-Print, $475
