In My Closet | The Midi Wrap Dress

There is nothing more universally flattering than a good wrap dress. I don’t know what it is, but they are so great on every body, especially the midi length! A classic wrap dress is such a staple wardrobe piece. Clearly, I am obsessing over white this summer. I tend to gravitate toward neutral pieces as a rule, but white is just so clean, classic and versatile! Shabby Apple has this perfection PLUS all the dresses and skirts you will ever need. Seriously, I want them ALL. If sophisticated and chic is your game, Shabby Apple has you covered!

I haven’t always been super curvy (thanks babies), so I am learning how to dress for my figure. Sometimes my mind wants to “hide” my curves behind cuts of clothing that aren’t tailored (like shift dresses). Those decisions usually wind up making me look bigger and less confident! I love that the wrap dress cinches at my natural waist to give me more of the hourglass figure. The other great thing is that it’s somewhat “adjustable” to allow for the inevitable weight fluctuation. For larger busts, a low neck gives a slimming illusion as opposed to higher necks that make your top half look larger and boxy.

This particular fabric has eyelet detail and is heavy, high quality and lined. This dress would be perfect for day or evening! I have paired it with gladiator sandals, espadrilles and wedges so far! I would love to know where you have found a great staple dress! Leave it in the comments!

    You are rockin’ these white dresses, mama!! I’m always terrified of wearing white because so many are see-through, but this one looks amazing! Plus wraps make it easier for nursing 🙂 Love!

      Yes! You’re right about nursing! Also, this fabric is so thick and modest- you would love it!
