Whenever I have a special event, my go-to designer is Diane von Furstenberg. I have been a HUGE DVF fan for years! I know that I can run to the store, grab one of her dresses, and it will look simply chic and perfect for any occasion. You will radiate with confidence when wearing any of her dresses!
The most iconic DVF style is her wrap dress. This famous dress has been around for over 40 years and has been worn by the most influential women across the world. I just recently returned from a trip to New York City, and I have to tell you that I packed not 1 but 2 dresses for this trip, both being wrap dresses. This is the perfect travel dress! You simply pack it in your suitcase and throw it on once you arrive at your destination. You will look instantly flawless, elegant, and sexy!
The silk jersey knit dress can be worn for almost any event from lunch with your girlfriends, to work, or a romantic date night with your honey. You can wear it with a simple stiletto for a classic look, dress it up with a strappy heel, or pair it with your favorite OTK boot in the winter! So many options to wear this classic dress with!
The best book I read this summer was Diane’s memoir, “The Woman I Wanted to Be.” She talks about her life growing up as a young woman, starting a business, and the evolution of the iconic wrap dress. The wrap dress was created in the 70’s when DVF was working for Angelo Ferretti in Italy. Diane then moved to New York and met with Vogue editor, Diana Vreeland, who proclaimed the wrap dress to be “Absolutely Smashing.” From there, the wrap dress was put on the map. Her
clothes have been worn by some of the most famous women from Michelle Obama, Madonna, to Catherine, Duchess Of Cambridge.
DVF’s mantra is, “Love is life is love.” So live your life and love yourself by wearing something fabulous! That’s a wrap!
