Hi, Today I am wearing a 1970s style H&M crepe wraparound dress.
The wrap dress has been around for decades and snowballed into popularity in the 1970s when Diane Von Furstenberg launched a collection of her own wrap dresses. This was often thought of the invention of the wrap dress, as her style of long sleeves knee length figure flattering wraps are the way we see them today, but there were elements of the wrap dress seen in fashion as early as the 1930s.
I have always loved Diane Von Furstenberg. I love the femininity of her dresses and how they enhance a woman’s figure in such an elegant and chic way. She also seems like a really lovely person with a great and positive outlook on life. Her dresses are stunning and I always have lust after them so I’m so pleased that 1970s fashion has made a comeback and that the wrap is back, although it’s always been a classic in my opinion.
It is always a good idea to have a classic wrap dress in your wardrobe. The wrap has many figure flattering features which is why it’s such a popular and classic choice. The v neck is thought to elongate the neck. The wrap waist naturally cinches the waist to create an hourglass silhouette. The lines and cut are designed to naturally flatter and enhance curves. The wrap dress is a lady like look that celebs love. You see many celebrities wearing them including and our lovely Princess Kate The Dutchess of Cambridge who wears the classic wrap dress a lot, and always looks so picture perfect, and Kim Kardashian who uses the wrap to enhance her gorgeous curves are just some examples.
I found this printed crepe wraparound dress in the H&M new 1970s collection. The collection is faced by Lara Stone and has some great pieces. The dress gives off the perfect 70s vibe in a feminine way and I love the print. It’s such nice colours for autumn. It is such a great price for the quality of the material and dress, and I’m really pleased to have it as part of my autumn wardrobe.
