When I think of Diane Von Furstenberg, the second thing that immediately comes to mind are exquisite wrap dresses. Thanks to Diane, the wrap dress became extremely popular in the mid 70’s. Over four decades later, and it’s still an all time favorite style of women across the globe. This particular wrap dress with it’s gingham print and green floral pattern is one of my favorite DVF wrap dresses of all time. I absolutely love the contrast between the clashing prints and colors. I feel this color palette is a bit masculine but is beautifully juxtaposed by the ultra feminine wrap style and the singular side ruffle detail. This dress not only moves beautifully, it also has a fluidity to it despite the clash of prints and colors; that is the genius of Diane Von Furstenberg.
Wrap dresses are quite versatile and definitely a wardrobe staple. They can easily be dressed down with sandals for casual outings or dressed up with closed-toe pumps for a more conservative and elegant occasion. Jersey fabric is the most flattering to this dress style. It creates wonderful movement and is flattering on every body type. Patterned wrap dresses are really fun to accessorize.

P.s. DFV dresses run a whole size small in my opinion. I’ve always ordered a size up for the perfect fit. I’m normally a 10 but I’m wearing a 12 in this dress.
