Sunday Style: Little Black Wrap Dress (Four Ways!)

I am pretty sure that most women own a little black dress. A black dress is so easy to dress up or dress down and I thought I would give you all some ideas today. I'm upping the ante and showing outfits with a wrap dress because they are fun and so figure-flattering! I found this wrap dress on the clearance rack at Old Navy probably a year or two ago. The tag said $6.99 on it so I either paid that or probably even less knowing me! 

The first look is a great look for a date night or night out. The dress itself is a blank canvas so I dressed it up with a beautiful statement necklace, polka dot tights and high heels with bows for Kohls. These shoes were a steal compared to their look alikes from a Kate Spade. I'm also carrying a bright orange clutch for a pop of color! I found this clutch at Goodwill! 



The second look is also still a bit more dressed up and how I would wear it to work. I have pearls on and a bright green bracelet. The bright green bracelet satisfies my need for some color in every outfit. The color blocked heels are Unisa that I found from Goodwill. These were such a steal and are in perfect condition! I'm carrying my favorite Phillip Lim for Target black purse. I think this look is functional and looks professional. 


Now to dress it down and get casual! Here's how I layered up this dress for the cold weather. I'm wearing my favorites in one outfit! The Zara plaid blanket scarf, a tassel necklace, my J Crew herringbone vest and riding boots. I'm even carrying my favorite cognac bag from Target. This outfit was warm and functional in the cold weather that we have been having. 


The last look is a casual one for when Spring finally decides to get here. I put a fun striped infinity scarf over the dress and paired it with bright blue shoes from JCrew Factory. I'm also carrying my favorite Phillip Lim for Target tote. This tote is awesome for work or play because it's so large, you can literally put everything in it! This is a great and easy fun look for someone on the go! 





There you have it! A few ideas of how to wear a figure- friendly wrap dress! Wrap dresses are literally great for every body type because of the waist-defining style. A wrap dress can be worn dressed up or dressed down and can be found in all price ranges. Do you have a wrap dress? Have you tried wearing the different ways? Will you wear it differently now? 

Happy Sunday! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

    1. Thanks so much! You're right that everyone should have a LBD or a LND- little navy dress. That's for another post though!
