I am always one of those people who avoids wrap dresses because they present a wardrobe issue for me. If you have any kind of curves, the top will inevitably not offer enough coverage. Guess what? I have just solved that problem.
Reformation just opened their store in Dallas and they sent me this beautiful red wrap dress. At first I thought I might not be able to wear it because wrap dresses present a wardrobe issue for me. No matter who the designer is, the top “wrap” will not cover my cleavage. Even when it has a hook and eye at the top it just looks awkward on me. Normally, I would avoid this type of dress but I’ve just solved that problem with one simple addition. I wear a tank underneath. So now it doesn’t matter if I have full coverage or not. I just saw another way to wear a wrap dress, especially if it is a maxi dress. Consider wearing it open as a jacket. Wear a skinny jean/black jean underneath with a fitted tee and the dress on top. So stylish.
A little bit about Reformation: Created in 2009 by Yael Aflalo, they design and manufacture the majority of their limited-edition collections in our factory headquarters in downtown Los Angeles. All other garments are produced by responsible manufacturing partners here in the U.S. or abroad using sustainable methods and materials. They source sustainable fabrics and vintage garments while incorporating better practices throughout their supply chain to make beautiful styles at a fraction of the environmental impact of conventional fashion. It is their mission to lead and inspire a sustainable way to be fashionable. Basically, you can feel good about their clothes. The Dallas boutique is located at 2815 N. Henderson.
Because I have solved the wrap dress wardrobe issue, I am linking you to several that I really like. It’s such a great fall transition piece.
Happy Columbus Day! xoxo- Tanya
