Nordstrom's Trendiest Wrap Dresses for the Season ...

By Tracy

Diane von Furstenberg is (not entirely correctly) credited with creating the wrap dress and indeed, there are several wrap dresses from Nordstrom by this great designer, but they tend to be a bit pricey. So here are seven great wrap dresses and faux wrap dresses from Nordstrom, that won’t force you to take out a loan, and you’ll still look like a million dollars.

1 Faux Wrap Jersey Dress -by Ralph Lauren

Faux Wrap Jersey Dress -by Ralph LaurenThey’re calling the color Spring Coral, I just call it beautiful. Shades of coral and orange look terrific on blondes, so golden-haired girls should definitely give this one a try. I love a matte jersey and the ruching is so figure flattering. It’s mostly polyester, so machine wash and line dry is all that’s required. Of all the wrap dresses from Nordstrom, this is the most feminine and beautiful.

2 ’MJ’ Print Draped Jersey Dress - by Maggy London

’MJ’ Print Draped Jersey Dress - by Maggy LondonOMG this is too cute! What a terrific summer dress. I love the length of this poly/spandex dress and it’s totally work appropriate. I’d change the ankle strap shoes on the model to a nude peep toe which would elongate the look of the legs. Add some terrific jewelry, like a pair of dangly earrings since the neckline is low.

Floral Print Matte Jersey Dress - by Ralph LaurenWow! Just wow! This stunning dress by Ralph Lauren is great for cocktails and dinner at a nice restaurant. I’m crazy about a dark brown and white color combination; it’s unexpected, and a nice change from black and white. There’s so much beautiful detail on this dress, from the neckline to the Empire waist and the ruching. Just wow!

4 'Adele' Print Matte Jersey Wrap Dress - by BCBGMAXAZRIA

'Adele' Print Matte Jersey Wrap Dress - by BCBGMAXAZRIALove the tied wrap on this speckled jersey dress. This looks like such an incredibly easy dress to wear. It’s stylish and appropriate enough for a business environment, while equally desirable for an afternoon lunch. I like the unusual color pairing of blue and yellow amidst the black and white. The ¾ sleeves are always my favorite length.

5 'Mowani' Print Faux Wrap Maxi Dress - by Michael Kors

'Mowani' Print Faux Wrap Maxi Dress - by Michael KorsPlanning a getaway? Maybe a cruise? What could be better for on board ship or strolling along the streets of your idyllic vacation spot, than this gorgeous animal print maxi? I expect nothing less than this from Michael Kors. Because of the all-over print and the length, petite girls should be sure this dress doesn’t overpower them.

6 ‘Diana’ Print Faux Wrap Dress - by Plenty by Tracy Reese

‘Diana’ Print Faux Wrap Dress - by Plenty by Tracy ReeseThe deep V of the neckline is duplicated in the back and that my friends, is the essence of a super summer dress. This is a faux wrap dress, so the sash can be replaced with a great looking belt, or left off entirely. This would look great with a pair of strappy sandals.

7 Jersey Faux Wrap Dress - by Ivy & Blu

Jersey Faux Wrap Dress - by Ivy & BluPurple lovers unite! I love the swing factor, the sash that meets the end of the dress, and the great draping below the waist. I want some bling on the shoes and neck to complete this. Can’t you just see this woman walking down the street with this beautiful dress swaying as she moved? An extremely flattering fit and color.

The wrap dress is perfect for full-figured women, petite women and women with great bodies. This style will never disappear because of its universal appeal. It’s always classy and tasteful. Do you own any wrap or faux-wrap dresses? What do you think about this style?
