DRESS: Diane von Furstenberg (also here and affordable options here, here, here, here, here & here!) | COAT: Ted Baker | SHOES: SJP Collection | EARRINGS: Argento Vivo | POLISH: Essie (Vanity Fairest)
Beyond its status as an icon of pop culture, the wrap dress by Diane von Furstenberg possesses a sociological significance of considerable proportion. The dress serves as a symbol of feminism and is credited with launching a liberating style movement worldwide upon its introduction in 1974. For more than forty years, the dress has retained prominence in women’s closets as a timeless wardrobe staple… and forty years is a lot of years.
The dress has been worn by first ladies, future queens, famous musicians and film stars. You name the past, present and/or future occasion, and this puppy will be there, bringing the heat. Wear it to work? Obviously. Wear to drinks? 100%. Wear it to church? Done. Wear it in 20 years on a teleportation trip to New Guinea? I’m so glad you asked. Because if we’re not teleporting by the year 2035 I’m going to lose it.
So help me God, I’m going to teleport and I’m going to do it in a DVF wrap dress.
Bottom line: If you don’t own one, shame on you.
