An ode to the best maxi wrap dress

the perfect maxi dress

There are two things I know for sure. First, every woman needs a black maxi dress. And two, a wrap dress is flattering on every body type. So when I say this is the perfect maxi + wrap dress, I am pretty confident you’ll think so too. It’s lightweight jersey knit, with three-quarter length sleeves and simple sash to tie it all together. Plus it’s under $100!

I have now worn this dress to two weddings, and a night out with Mau. I swear it makes me look at least 10 lbs lighter, as well as at least a couple of inches taller, though I did have to have the dress hemmed, but I am 5’2. It’s so rare that you can find a dress that makes you feel good, while also feeling comfortable. all. night.long. that I had to share!

I love the drama of this black maxi, so I kept it minimal with simple drop earrings and  a vintage bag I found many moons ago in a Philly thrift shop, as well as my  Charlotte ankle strap heels .

While I do think this dress is extremely versatile. It’s the kind of dress you can pull out of your closet all year around, or five years from now and it will still be timelessly beautiful and flattering.

It would work for a summer day wedding or a winter evening event, like a Christmas party, though it felt a little too dressy for just a night out, so I decided to try a new trend…

What do you guys think of pairing dresses with pants? I have to admit I wasn’t a huge fan of this recent trend. But, once I tried it with jeans, it kind of worked? Would you guys try this?
