DVF Wrap Dress: How To Wear For Work

Diane Von Furstenberg just celebrated the 40th anniversary of the DVF wrap dress this past Friday, January 10th, 2014 with the opening of an exhibit dedicated solely to her iconic design, celebrities wearing her flattering styles, and portraits of her.  The DVF wrap dress was invented by the designer in the 1970’s and was designed to flatter a woman’s curves, while at the same time feel comfortable and look smashing. Of her dresses Diane recently said, “She made me famous. She paid for all my bills. And tonight we celebrate the wrap dress.”

I have always been intrigued by the DVF wrap dress, which is available in so many prints and colors, as it is similar in style to a lightweight woman’s robe, yet is very appropriate and stylish for the office and work environments.  The simple dress fastens around the natural waist with a matching belt, causing a cinching effect, and giving her the best curves possible.  Below, I’m wearing the New Julian Two” DVF wrap dress with a deep V-neck in black and white chain link print.  I’ve paired this 70’s inspired, psychedelic dress with black, suede, peep-toe Christian Louboutins, and accessorized with a black Charriol cable bracelet.   For work, I’ve kept this look very simple and understated by opting for classic black pumps and jewelry. Welp, I’m off to a lunch meeting at La Valencia Hotel in downtown La Jolla carrying my very special, limited edition Hugo Boss notebook!
