The knitted jersey wrap dress was made famous by Diane Von Furstenberg when she introduced it in 1974.  Today, there are many variations of this iconic dress.  The jersey material is flattering for many body shapes.  There are also more structured cuts for a professional look.  I have accumulated quite the collection as they can easily transition from your desk to dinner.  And the jersey dresses are easy to pack for travel!
1)  Issa wrap dress – pair the bold print with a simple jacket and neutral shoes and bag.
2)  Diane Von Furstenberg wrap dress – this is one of her many prints.  It’s a great color for Spring-Summer.
3)  Just Cavali wrap dress – this paler palette is great for the warmer days at the office or even for the Spring/Summer wedding.
4)  Michael by Michael Kors wrap dress – a casual Friday to weekend getaway look.
