The Faux-Wrap Maxi Dress: Summer's Most Flattering Style

Image placeholder title

I've always been a fan of the wrap-dress. Worn correctly, it can instantly cinch your waist and give you a flattering form. Maxi dresses, on the other hand, don't necessarily look good on every shape and every body. But, then again, they're so comfortable and so effortless and so necessary on hot, humid days--what's a girl to do?

Enter the wrap maxi dress, my favorite style of the season. The one I'm wearing is actually a faux maxi, but it still does the job and gives me a cute waist (if I do say so myself!). It can be dressed up with heels, dressed down with flip-flops, accessorized with bling, or kept simple with an open neckline--which is how I've opted to wear it here. It's such a versatile look for summer and as universally flattering as a dress can possibly get.

I've rounded up a few of my favorite real and faux wrap maxi dress styles for my, I mean, your shopping pleasure. Get one, get 'em all. They're pretty much guaranteed to look good. I plan on purchasing #allthewrapmaxis--because summer is all about effortless style. And this look is as easy, breezy, and chic.
