In fashion, it’s usually the combination of functionality and style that elevates an item to cult status––and the wrap dress is no exception. In the words of the designer who pioneered the style, Diane von Furstenberg: “It's a dress that's both proper and seductive...practical and sexy. It just has everything.”

Whether or not the wrap dress deserves to be described as “timeless” is really not up for discussion. Furstenberg started selling her figure-hugging boldly printed wrap dresses in the 70s and, to this day, they are some of the most coveted dress styles by women around the globe. A wrap dress is easy to slip into and take off and the design works both for casual events as well as formal functions. It’s comfortable, stylish, and flattering on any body type. It really does have everything. And just like the LBD, the wrap dress has become a staple in women’s closets.

So, it’s not surprising that other designers have embraced Furstenberg’s signature silhouette, creating their own versions of it season after season. Now allow us to prove that there is a wrap dress suitable for any occasion with this curated list of the chicest dresses to wear this spring.
