Wrap dresses in every variety are perfect for your summer vacation. Here are the best wrap dresses for all occasions!

WraP DRESS

If you’re looking to refresh your wardrobe, the wrap dress is a fashion staple that never goes out of style. Even in 2022, wrap dresses are a trend that returns every season because they are so beloved. Versatility is one of the major benefits of the classic wrap dress as well as its slimming effect. Read on to discover why.

Top stylists agree that wrap dresses are universally flattering. A wrap dress makes you look slimmer by defining your waist and accentuating your bust and hips. The built-in belt draws the eye to the smallest part of your figure, while a v-neckline and a-line skirt enhances your curves. (Tip: try filling that empty space at your décolletage with your favorite necklace!)

Whether you opt for a maxi wrap dress or a midi wrap dress, they are perfect for all occasions: from a romantic date on your laid-back getaway to a Michelin-starred dinner. Feeling flirty? Go for a floral wrap dress with a youthful mini skirt or spaghetti straps, paired with some block-heel sandals. If you’re searching for an elegant outfit, wear a maxi wrap dress in a sophisticated print or a classic silk wrap dress.

Now that you’ve decided to add a new wrap dress to your closet, don’t be overwhelmed by countless choices. Here at Viva Cabana, we’ve selected beautiful options in a variety of lengths, colors, and prints for your perfect wrap dress. No matter the season, each of these styles will make you feel confident and ready to strike a pose.

HOW TO STYLE A WRAP DRESS

Do you need some inspiration on how to wear a wrap dress for different settings? Here are some ideas.

WRAP DRESSES FOR WORK

Did you know that when Diane von Furstenberg designed the wrap dress in the 1970s, she was inspired to create a more feminine version of office clothing for women? Wrap dresses are appropriate for work and will help you look super polished. Remain safe-for-work by keeping the neckline high, or layering with a tank top.

WRAP DRESSES FOR VACATION

The wrap dress is the summer vacation essential, including during long, relaxing days at the beach. Accessorize with a trendy summer hat that doubles as sun protection for your face and eyes. And don’t forget that you can use a wrap dress as a swimsuit cover up!

WRAP DRESSES FOR BRUNCH

When you have the perfect wrap dress, you don’t need to think about what to wear to weekend brunch. Just pop it on and head out the door with your favorite slide sandals on your feet. (Maybe even Gucci slides!)
