That’s a wrap!

Evie wearing the classic wrap dress styled for Canberra's winter
The classic wrap dress has been around for years. The style rose to popularity in the 1970s with when Diane Von Furstenberg introduced us to stretchy fabric with bold and bright patterns.

What makes this style a great wardrobe investment is that it will flatter most shapes. A good wrap dress will create an illusion of a smaller waist and balance the bust line. They tend to also skim the hips which is ultra flattering and sliming.

My muse for the wrap dress was our girl Evie. For this styling challenge I wanted to illustrate how to style a ‘spring dress’ for winter.

As you know Evie tends to stick to monochromatic tones and plain fabrics, but I wanted to challenge her a little on this one. Instead of plain fabrics I opted to put her in this black and white polkadot wrap dress from Forcast clothing.

The dress was on sale (amazing), but let’s face it, Canberra is way too cold to be out there gallivanting in just a dress. Thus, I opted to layer it with a fitted skivvy and had her wear it with boots.

To add some further style elements I added a felt tan hat (which looked great with Evie’s skin tone and newly died hair) and drapped my fav faux leather jacket on her shoulders.

Overall, I love the look that I achieved on Evie. It is feminine and versatile. You could easily take this into spring by ditching the skivvy and boots, and opt for some killer heels.

I think Evie looked amazing what do you think?
