You don't have to be a runway model to wear the wrap dress. Its shape and construction is very figure-friendly.

Diane Von Furstenberg didn't invent the wrap dress, but she made it oh-so-right -- for all of us. During the 1970s, she pushed this figure-flattering (no matter what the state of our figures) design out of the realm of sportswear and into that of timeless silhouette. In fact, the wrap has been known to add curves where there are none and to hide inches where there are a few too many. What's not to love?

The wrap dress is a wardrobe staple today. Wear it to work by slipping on a tailored jacket and modest pumps or to dinner by swapping buttoned-up accessories for a flirty shrug and high heels. And that's a wrap!
