    You may have heard us claim time and time again that we’re not the sort of ladies who like club-ready, body-con dresses. But, if there’s one thing that the fashion world — and its many trailblazers — have taught us, it’s never to say never. Especially when a brand like Proenza Schouler changes the game and reimagines styles we may have once deemed “so not us.” Behold: Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez’s version of the bandage dress.

    This new generation of bandage numbers hug the body in a more subtle way, with fabric wrapped over flowing, midi-length frocks and high-slit skirts in contrasting colors and patterns. The strips of material create long lines across the shoulders and down the leg, with a less body-hugging silhouette underneath. They're slim-fit and figure-flattering, but not binding — in other words, these dresses move when you move.

    For those who like to show a bit more skin, other similar styles paired the same enveloping design with wide-fishnet tights (or nothing at all) underneath. The looks are a cool mashup of dress shapes that's sexy, daring, and certainly doesn't scream “It’s girls’ night! Pass me a vodka cran!” Check out the new, more sophisticated way to wear a bandage dress, ahead.
