Styling up a wrap dress can be a tall order. They’re difficult to pair with belts, and they can have issues with cardigans. There are options, though, for creating wrap dress styles. Today, I wanted to show you a few cute outfits based on our Sleeveless Wrap Dress Pattern. The Wrap Dress is our featured product for this week and next. It’s on sale for all VIPs, so go head and join our mailing list to gain access to the offer.
I took these photos late in the evening, so the lighting’s a bit different from usual. My camera was also a bit poorly leveled as you may notice…
Popping a top under a sleeveless dress is always a good choice. For the first look, I paired The Wrap Dress with our Pretty Basic Jersey Top. The top’s made with snake skin print lycra, and has a double-bound neckline.
My wrap dress is made with a thick cotton jersey. It’s black, but tints toward brown. That’s why my first instinct was to choose a top with a brown print. I really like the way this outfit turned out. It’s comfortable and cute, and completely office appropriate. Snake skin shoes repeat the top’s pattern, and complete the look.
For jewelry, I chose to wear a single black bangle. I fear it might have been lonely on its own, but it does make a pretty detail!
A dab of Blue
Small touches of color brighten up any outfit. I’m most comfortable in black, but sometimes it’s nice to shake it up a bit.
Not too much, though.
For the second look, I wore a blue mesh top under the wrap dress. To even out the contrast between a light top and a heavy dress, I wore sleeves over the top. The sleeves bring a bit of warmth, and also tone down the blue top a little.
This outfit it also super-comfy, and perfect for running errands and shopping. For the photos, I decided to pair it with H&M heels I just got. I’m not that crazy about the shoes, but they’re basic, classic, and affordable. I had a bit of a shoe-related emergency, and these heels saved me.
Cute with Lace
Blouses also work well with wrap dresses. For the last stop of today’s wrap dress styles, I paired the dress up with a black lace blouse. I’ve actually done a similar look earlier, in this post. I wore that particular outfit when we went to see CMX in August, and really liked it. Today, I wanted to show you a slight variation of it.
I wore a lace blouse with ruffle sleeves under the wrap dress along with a lace petticoat. Together, they bring a lot of femininity to the look. I tied the belts to the front, and secured them with a brooch. Silver pumps and a statement ring play well with the silvery brooch, and add a bit of color the otherwise dark outfit.
This looks is really nice for parties that might be on the chilly side. A light layer under the dress gives a lot of warmth, and adding a shawl to the mix will make this look even cozier.
I hope you’ve enjoyed our Wrap Dress Styles!
Until next time.
