I have this terrible weak spot for wrap dresses. They are comfortable, forgiving and hide a multitude of sins. God bless Diane Von Furstenberg for having elevated them to cult status with her pioneering wrap dress brought into the high fashion scene way back in 1974. While I don’t have a DVF wrap dress yet (someday, someday, is the Universe listening in, with ear wax cleaned out? ), I do have a couple of others that I keep going back to over and over.
A different kind of wrap dress, this chocolate and rust version from Label by Ritu Kumar was perhaps one of the most comfortable dresses I’ve ever worn. I teamed it with a grey camisole, for modesty, because, erm, well. My shoes are a pair of trusted old really ugly but very comfortable chocolate block heels which I wore over and over till they finally collapsed on me mid event, I forget which brand though. Teamed this with a simple silver ethnic choker and red lips. Works?
And yes, I was chatting with the gorgeous Tisca Chopra at this BackToTheFront Career Konneckt event a couple of years ago. Isn’t she absolutely lovely?
