How to Wear a Wrap Dress | Lindy Bop

New styles, new prints! Do you hear that? It’s the new style klaxon, and boy do we have lots of new wrap dress styles for you! Buckle in, we’re going to go down memory lane to look back over the history of the wrap dress and decode the inevitable questions of “How to wear a wrap dress?” and “How to tie a wrap dress?”

The wrap dress has been around for many decades; however, one designer, in particular, secured it as a staple, star style in the history books from 1974. Spiking in popularity during the ‘70s & ’80s, appearing on many an Ad and selling over a million wrap dresses in the first year alone is iconic Belgian designer Diane Von Furstenberg.

We love wrap dress styles for many reasons! A silhouette of a wrap design fits every body perfectly, the ultimate size inclusive dress. Wear loose or tie tightly in a bow, wrap dress styles allow you to self-tie, nip in your waist and create the perfect shape and fit. The V-shape neckline is a union of sexy, but not too revealing and doubles up as ideal for breastfeeding.
