The Must-Have, Go-to Dress of All Time

It flatters every body shape and is appropriate at every age. It is perfect for any season and nearly every occasion—you can easily glam it up, or funk it down.

The classic black wrap dress and its various versions (mock wrap, crossover, ruched, empire-waisted, etc...) is a foundation piece for absolutely every wardrobe.

Proving its value as the go-to dress, just about every label and designer offer a version of this classic silhouette, making finding one in your price point easy. 

Julian Wrap Dress at for $298US

It would be criminal of me to open this segment with anyone other than The Queen of the Wrap Dress—Miss Diane Von Furstenberg. 

Every woman should own at least one DVF wrap, so this is a perfect place to start. And this little cutie is currently available in the DVF online boutique.

Here is a little charmer I couldn't pass up, great price and is available in diverse colors and styles (short, mid or long sleeve, collarless, various colors). The perfect wardrobe basic:

A great bargain from Lands End for $69.50US

A beautiful high-end silk and gauze version for those with designer tastes and a budget to match:

And if you already have your collection of black wrap dresses or are simply tired of black (how? HOW is that possible?)—I'm loving the next best thingcharcoal
Just delicious.
