How to Wear a Wrap Dress and Where to Buy a Black Ladies Cocktail Dress for Business or Pleasure in Australia

Nothing makes you feel beautiful quite like slipping into a gorgeous dress. Wrap dresses are incredibly popular because they define and flatter your shape and create a beautiful line. Whether you are looking for a business wrap dress to wear to the office or a sexy wrap cocktail dress for an evening out, this is one style that works for any occasion. Here are some tips for making the most of your favourite ladies wrap dress.

Take advantage of those fine lines

Jersey wrap dresses skim your body, highlighting your curves and making you look and feel amazing. What you wear underneath counts when it comes to making the most of your dress, so put on some seam free underwear first. You could also, look for a simple, stretchy camisole if you want to keep your look professional, as some wrap dresses tend to come apart at the top.

Feel free to layer

Wrap dresses make great layering pieces and are perfect with jackets or cardigans. Try wearing a business wrap dress with a tailored jacket and some smart accessories for a day at work – or a black cocktail wrap dress with a soft cardigan and a few pieces of delicate jewellery out on a date. Wrap dresses are very versatile when it comes to accessories; try long or short necklaces or a chunky bracelet or two with a dress that has ¾-length sleeves.

Choose the right shoes

You have lots of options when it comes to picking out shoes to wear with your ladies wrap dress. Consider the style of your dress and your other accessories – for example, try layering your wrap dress with a denim jacket and knee-high leather boots for a casual look or pair your dress with bold red lipstick, sparkly earrings, and patent leather heels for an evening look. Pumps in a neutral colour make your leg look longer in the right tone; statement or strappy sandals or many different styles of boot. Consider the colour of your dress as well – try shoes in a neutral colour to complement a boldly-coloured dress or a pair of sandals that incorporates just a hint of the dress colour for great visual balance. If you’re unsure, go back to basics: pumps, ballet flats, wedges, or sandals in a neutral tone will look great with any wrap dress.
