Seventies style celebrated the elegance of the wrap. Diane von Furstenburg launched her classic wrap dress, bohemian lasses wore long, flowy wraparound skirts to Grateful Dead shows, and my high school-aged sister lived in her Indian cotton wrap skirt when she wasn’t in her school uniform. Wraparounds are my favorite wardrobe staple. I love their versatility since they dress up and down with ease. Our rayon wrap skirts (now sold out) are a three-season favorite. Continue below to learn how to wear these skirts and some thoughts on how to style them.
How to Wear
These rayon skirts are a simple one-size-fits many design. They are essentially a large rectangle that has been gently curved towards the bottom for a more flattering drape. Each side of the top waistband has a long attached "fabric belt" for securing around your waist.
To wear, simply hold the wrap all the way extended and decide where you would like the fabric to overlap. Then determine whether the skirt opening is positioned towards the front, side, or back. Once you've positioned the wrap to your liking, continue wrapping the fabric belt around until it meets up with the other side, and tie the two ends together.
How to Style
Our wrap-around skirts are multi-dimensional. Each skirt can be styled at least three different ways - a perfect example of a “less-is-more” product. In addition, our skirt comes in its own fabric pouch with extra room for your travel essentials.
These skirts are very travel-friendly and pack small. You can wear them with a bathing suit and throw on a tee-shirt and step into a restaurant. Or, if I'm traveling from bitter cold to equatorial heat, I tuck a skirt and a blouse into my carry-on and change before landing.
I live in boots and these skirts pair perfectly with my cowboy boots. I simply add either a denim or suede jacket and finish with a wide belt.
Most of us are on the move on Saturdays and these skirts play well with sneakers and over leggings in cooler temperatures. Or with a T-shirt and sweater. Why not add some flair to errand running?
