A Classic Wrap Dress Never Goes Out of Fashion + Link Up

A Classic Wrap Dress Never Goes Out of Fashion

I love to buy new clothes (as I’m sure you know by now) but sometimes it’s good to bring out an old favourite. I’ve had this wrap dress for years, in fact I wore it before on the blog almost six years ago to the day! A classic wrap dress never goes out of fashion, and best of all, they can accomodate minor weight fluctuations.

I’m even wearing the same necklace as last time, but I’ve changed the boots and bag. These Cara London boots are much more comfortable than my other brown pair, although they are a bit lighter in colour. Because of that I matched them to this big Sara Berman bag (last seen here…also in February which is another coincidence!). It was bitterly cold yesterday when we took these photos in my lunch break, so I layered a vest under my dress.

I’ve been looking for an elegant top handle bag in dark brown vegan leather, but I just can’t find one.

I don’t often wear brown, but when I do I tend to pair it with green. The bag I wore with this dress before is a lovely chocolate brown, which matches the dress so well, but unfortunately the buckle broke. I never did manage to get it fixed, which is a shame because I bought it in Italy. I’ve been looking for an elegant top handle bag in dark brown vegan leather, but I just can’t find one. Maybe it’s not a popular shade? Never mind, I love a challenge, so I’ll continue looking.

One thing I haven’t had any problem finding is more wrap dresses. Given how easy they are to wear I’m surprised I don’t have more. Over the coming months I’ll be adding a couple more to my wardrobe 😉

Are you a fan of wrap dresses? I’d love to know what you think of this classic style. And if you know where to find good quality vegan leather bags please pass on your recommendations!

    The dress is gorgeous. I’m a big fan of wrap dresses and I’m liking the Karina dresses at the moment. They have some lovely prints

    Emma, I always love brown and green or teal! Such a great combination. And this wrap dress is beautiful. I love that you went with taupe accessories. They really brighten it up and add a little extra depth! Wonderful styling, my friend.

    I love wrap dresses, but I always have to wear a cami under them because I have a large bust and they always show too much cleavage. Someone needs to invent a wrap dress for us bigger bust ladies! 🙂 Yours looks gorgeous on you. It really flatters you. Love the colors/print.

      Thanks Amy! I know exactly what you mean! The last time I wore it I didn’t wear a cami underneath so I had to pin it.

    Oh I am a huge fan of wrap dresses! One day I want to buy a real DVF! That’s funny that you wore it six years ago too! I don’t think I would have been able to keep that dress so nice as you have for all these years. Gorgeous colours!

    I totally agree that a wrap dress is definitely a classic. I love the color and pattern on this one. It makes your hair pop!

    Looks lovely Emma, a great dress. I’ve got a couple of wrap dresses, one in neutral colours and I love wearing it. I’ll have to pop it out soon I think. x Jacqui

    Love your dress! Brown ad blue are a favorite color combination, i have it in my bedroom and bathroom 🙂 I love the wrap dress on you, so beautiful on you! i love the taupe colored bag and boots and I have been shopping my closet a bit more lately, as in between seasons and im waiting for more Spring wear. I used to buy leather bags from a company called Hayden Harnett in NYC, they kept the name and now sell Vegan bags. Hope that helps! https://haydenharnett.com/

    Beautiful dress and necklace! 🙂

    Found you on Nancy’s Fashion Style and had to come over and compliment you on the lovely wrap dress. The print is beautiful and the boots are fabulous with it. I’m a big fan of the wrap style, whether dresses, tops, whatever. So easy to wear.

    Don’t have a recommendation for a good vegan bag dealer. But I must say, the one you are wearing in the photos is stunning.
