Mix the richness of brown with the figure-friendly elements of a wrap dress and you've got a winning style combo. Dress it down for day with simple accessories and conservative shoes or jazz it up at night with bold jewelry and sexy, strappy sandals. There are so many ways to wear a wrap dress and versatile brown is just begging for color shots, so be daring and have fun with it!
Work it for work in a brown wrap dress that skims along your contours without boasting too snug a fit. Wear a brown wrap dress that hits around the knee with a fuller skirt for optimal professionalism, and throw on a cami underneath so the office isn't distracted by the cleavage that comes along with this dress type. Pair it with red peep toe pumps and red beaded jewelry for added color. Feeling a bit bold? Try a pair of printed pumps, such as geometric patterns or a reptile skin, to really stand out in the break room.
There is something so nonrestrictive about a wrap dress; no girdles to worry about, no sucking it in for a pair of skinnies. Because of the style of the dress, you can be free to be chic and comfortable. Throw on a brown wrap dress with some neutral toned wedge sandals for an afternoon of window shopping. Accessorize with simple gold and top the look off with a floppy straw hat for a casually fabulous look.
Out On the Town
Brown might not be your go-to color when it's time to step out, but you might want to change your thinking on that. Brown is rich, sultry and downright sophisticated, and you can show off all three of those qualities -- plus the finer points of your figure -- with a wrap dress. Toss out the cami and give your cleavage some air. Strappy sandals -- try gold for something sassy and different -- are a sexy addition to your outfit. Potential jewelry options include layered gold chains, chunky turquoise or multi-colored strands of beads. At night, remember, the bigger your jewelry, the better.
A wrap dress generally hugs the contours of your body around your bust and then flares out a bit lower down, which hides figures flaws. Be sure to get the right fit; too tight and all of your goods are on display; too loose and you are swimming in your dress. Change it up with tank wraps, long-sleeved styles or mini wrap-dresses. Choose according to occasion; remember, it's best to be appropriate and stylish, versus just one or the other.
