Wrap dresses have been a woman’s best friend ever since DVF immortalized them! Even though I am yet to own one of Furstenburg’s iconic designs, I have several wrap dresses in my closet. They are flattering on everybody – yes EVERY-BODY. The V neckline is sexy on a wrap dress and the tie waist shows off your curves.
I’ve worn wrap dresses in a formal environment- at work, date-night or holiday dinners so when I saw Voloshin’s printed 100% cotton maxi wrap dress I knew I wanted to wear this beautiful dress. I remember when I met Amy Voloshin last fall, she had debuted her collection and I gushing over every print, design and fabric. Earthy yet feminine and so very functional, Voloshin’s spring / resort collection is for women who love spending long summer days outside. Scroll through their website and her collection will take you strolling through lavender fields, lake side picnics, Saturday brunches and Sunday mornings at the farmer’s market.
Even though I love wrap dresses just the way they are, I am not a big fan of V necklines and no matter the season, I prefer higher necklines. I simply wore the dress back to front. The tie waist made for an amazing big bow in the back – almost obi-like and let me show off a big chunky afghani style neckpiece.
This gives me a chance to wear this lovely Baja Wrap Dress the regular way, with the wrap tie in the front and have it look like a completely different outfit! It is not the first time I have worn an outfit back to front, here I wore a simple black tee V neck on my back and styled with a stone neckpiece. You can use this idea for all outfits with a V neck to change how they look. Style with big earrings or a neckpiece like I have and you’ll always have two ways to wear the same thing!
What do you think about this idea? Would you wear a wrap dress or a V neck tee the other way around?
