The wrap dress has frequently been hailed as the most flattering style for all body types, so it’s no wonder they’re everywhere this summer! Whether you prefer a pencil fit or flowing ruffles, long sleeves or spaghetti straps, mini skirts or maxi lengths, there’s guaranteed to be a wrap dress for you. Suitable for both the office and the dancefloor, the wrap dress is the ultimate versatile item, with a tie waist that makes any figure look gorgeous. Whatever your style and budget, I’ve got you covered with today’s post. Let’s dive into my top 5 wrap dresses to see you through summer, starting with the little number that made waves on my YouTube channel.

Though I would never usually opt for something as dainty as this polkadot ruffle wrap dress from PrettyLittleThing, something about that daring neckline drew me in, and I fell in love. It’s the perfect sexy little number for summer, thanks to its feminine pink hues and mini cut. Not one that you’ll be able to add to your transitional wardrobe, but at £25, does it matter?!
If you are after something which is a little less trend led and a little more timeless, then a classic LBD isn’t going out of fashion any time soon. I absolutely adore this velvet long sleeved wrap dress from Zara, because not only would it be ideal for a girl’s night out in cool September, but it would make the ideal Christmas party dress. The velvet adds a very welcome gothic touch, too!
FOXIEDOX AT ASOS
The colour of the season is mustard yellow. Even better if it’s plastered with florals! That’s why this floral cold shoulder wrap dress by Foxiedox at ASOS is looking very appealing right now. It’s a little on the pricey side, but that delicate lace trim and gentle ruffle hem are too good to resist. Another one for the transitional wardrobe thanks to its warm autumnal colours!
I’m a sucker for lace, crochet or broderie, especially if it’s white! That’s why I couldn’t create this post without including this simple yet stunning broderie ruffle wrap dress from Topshop. It possesses the same plunging neckline and feminine ruffles that drew me to the PrettyLittleThing dress, but flared sleeves and a longer length make this a better pick for those who prefer a little more coverage.
Finally, the floaty bohemian midi dress has been popular for years, usually making a reappearance around festival season. However, they’re also the perfect transitional item when dressed up with a slouchy sweater, chunky boots and a light utility jacket. In the mean time, wear this floral midi wrap dress from Nasty Gal with a wide brimmed straw hat and embrace the last of the British summer!
