Invented in the 1970s, the wrap dress is a classic dress that refuses to go out of style. One half of the dress is wrapped over the other side, creating a front closure. So you don’t have a wardrobe malfunction walking down the streets, basically. The front is attached with a tie, which wraps around the waist of the dress. The tie emphasizes your waist in the best way, making the wrap dress one of the most flattering dresses you can buy. A true wrap dress can be put on like a robe, instead of pulled over your head. The faux wrap dress, which needs to be slipped over your head, still counts though. 

We found the best wrap dresses for you. What’s so great about these garments is that they can be dressed up and down. You can wear them to weddings, work, dates, friend hangs, vacations and on lazy Sundays. We’ve found two flirty options that have high slits, which emphasize your legs, while our first pick is best for those meetings with your boss.
