That’s A Wrap! These Modern Wrap Dresses Are Serious Silhouette Saviors

Sure, peplum had its time in the sun, but no matter which frock-style du jour tries to compete, the wrap dress still takes the crown for the most flattering, timeless dress out there. We owe the iconic silhouette to fashion mastermind Diane von Furstenberg (the style catapulted her into a household name nearly four decades ago). But, lucky for us, myriad designers have put their stamp on the now-classic style.
To help you pay homage to DVF (and show off those killer curves), we’re bringing you 12 updated wrap dresses — from semi-fitted faux wraps to double-layered shirtdress — that are sure to become the most versatile, feminine item in your wardrobe. Our waist-cinching picks, right this way!
