Curvy women gets the most out of this dress. But if you are already heavy on top, choose a sleeveless or something with very minimal fabric on top. Forgo ruffles or big prints or light colors on top. If you are medium built, you can get away with long sleeves or ruffles on top just make sure you wear padded bra so as not to drown your curves.

And if you travel a lot for work, wrap dresses are a must for they are crease-free and instantly gives that sophisticated, successful look.


Wrap dresses are always demure with its sash for belt. Toughen up the look with huge Raymond Weil boyfriend watch, a medium sized structured bag for further contrast, then elevate yourself with wedge, and don huge sunglasses.
