I remember first falling in love with the wrap dress whilst watching The City, a reality TV show which was a spin-off of The Hills. Set in New York, it followed the lives of professional women working at Diane von Fürstenberg. It was also the same time I fell in love with Olivia Palermo (who stared in the show) and her impeccable style both in and out of work.
I was 18 and had just started my first ever job in London straight out of college. Notepad and pen in hand, I would watch the show after work each week and jot down outfit inspiration as the fabulous women strutted around the office. I absolutely adored how put together the women were and how each day in the office for them was like a catwalk show.
My obsession with Diane von Fürstenberg and her iconic wrap dresses grew and grew from then onwards onwards, and 10 years later I’m still dreaming about the day I have a DVF wrap dress hanging in my closet! Luckily for me, there are a ton of other variations of the classic dress to keep me occupied until that moment arrives!
The wrap dress was designed to make women feel fabulous, fierce and confident, which is exactly how I feel when I put one on. For me, it’s the piece of clothing I instantly go to when I want to feel my best.
This particular number comes in two colours, the green which I’m wearing here and a pale pink option too which I obviously couldn’t resist buying too!
Worn with a pair of metallic block heels which complimented the green and pink detailing. I also have the shoes in nude, which I’ve practically worn to death already this year. I’ve linked all options below!
