One of my most loved dresses from this past spring is this Auguste the Label floral wrap dress. As I mentioned in this post, one of my favorite silhouettes is the wrap dress because it’s classic, comfortable, and flattering to a range of body types. Whether it’s a maxi or mini wrap dress, I’m always on the lookout for this particular silhouette. But, it’s all about finding the right wrap for you.
My number one pet peeve is when there isn’t enough material to actually “wrap” across the bust and you’re left with a situation up top that is not what you’re looking for (my big busted girls will know what I’m talking about). On the other hand, you don’t want the wrap dress to have too much coverage where you can end up looking matronly and too “wrapped up”. It’s all about finding that happy medium, so when I came across this playful ruffled wrap dress and tried it on, I knew in a heartbeat that it was THE one. The luxurious silk mixed with the wrapped style makes this dress ultra flattering and super comfortable to wear. Club Monaco also made a similar wrap style in their previous collection with long sleeves and a black and white polka dot print, which is a classic dress to have in your wardrobe.
This carry all basket bag from Doen has been a recent obsession of mine and one of my go-to accessories. You may have noticed that this basket bag trend has been everywhere lately, and I am all for it. Not only is this bag easy to pair with basically everything, but it’s incredibly affordable, too. This Doen bag is under $30, which I think is an amazing price for such a well constructed bag.
What I love about this wrap dress is how perfect and light it is for those warm summer days. I wore this look on a trip to Westport, CT this week, when the temperature was at “burning hot,” and it managed to keep me cool. I decided to dress this look up with a mid-heeled linen wedge. These espadrilles from Mango are made in a soft beige linen, which is the perfect color to pair with all your light summer dresses. They’re also a great heel height because they offer just the right amount of lift while still being comfortable and easy to walk in. Not to mention they’re a great price! You could also take a casual approach by keeping the straw bag but swapping out the linen espadrilles for a strappy sandal.
