【Shopping Guide: Wrap Dress】

Wrap dress, the new goddess dress, is everywhere this summer. If you are not so sure how to rock it with your body type, I am going to help you with this one in this article.


For petite girls, short sleeves mini or maxi would be suitable, depending on your style. Short sleeves creates an extension to your arms and shifts the attention to other parts of your body, so you look slimmer.


On the other hand, maxi covers the heels you wear and extend your legs. The only kind that you should avoid is irregular midi - shorter in front and longer at the back. This will no doubt make you look shorter than you already are.

Most wrap dresses are made of polyester so they look weightless on your body. Silk and satin are even more comfortable but they move around quite a lot so it all depends on how you like it.

Other materials like linen and shirt are prone to creases and does not move around as much. I believe velvet and suede are the last thing you want to put on under 30 degree.

What to wear underneath


Yes, it is nipple cover. It is way more natural than nude bra and surely no one wants to stick a nude bra under the bright summer sun. Where to get one? H&M, Missguided, Asos, Cotton On or your desired lingerie shop.


How to style them

To stay true to the vacation style, flat sandals are always a good choice. Otherwise, wedged sandals, converse, ankle-striped heels are other possible options. If you wear single colour wrap dress, styling it with chained necklace and bracelets can surely add the glam. If you wear floral or patterned one then let the dress tell the story.
