The Universally Flattering Dress Everyone Should Own


(Image credit: @jeannine.roxas)

Along with being timeless, versatile, and ever-changing, did you know that the wrap dress is extremely flattering? We may go as far as to say it’s one of the most flattering dress styles out there, thanks to its waist-accentuating, DIY-fit nature. What’s even better about the frock is that it’s constantly being reinvented by designers to feel new and of the moment.

So, when we recently noticed a fresh crop of wrap dresses on the market, we thought it would only be fitting to share our favorites with our readers. With the new season (finally) in full swing, there's no better time for a closet refresh, and trust us—these are nothing like what you’ve seen before or may already own. See what we mean below and shop our flattering and fashion-forward wrap dress picks.

Nicole Akhtarzad Eshaghpour
Senior Market Editor

Since starting as an intern back in 2013, Nicole Akhtarzad Eshaghpour has held several roles here at Who What Wear, and she is currently senior market editor. It was a less expected route, seeing as she was graduating from business school at USC when this all began, but it has turned out to be the best one for her. Fast-forward to 2020, and she's moved to NYC from her hometown of Beverly Hills and spends her workdays a little differently from when she was an intern starting out. Currently, she focuses on a weekly mélange of shopping content. As far as her personal style goes, she's largely drawn to classic pieces and neutral basics but will always make an exception for something colorful, printed, or bejeweled as long as it's deemed worthy enough. After all, the only thing she loves more than a good party is dressing up for one. On weekdays, she can usually be found at home eating something delicious for dinner and trying to force her husband to watch 90 Day Fiancé.
