Dress of the Day: DVF Linda wrap dress
Diane Von Furstenberg Linda silk jersey wrap dress £162.49 >>>
The Diane Von Furstenberg wrap dress is a little piece of fashion history. When she first started putting out her luxurious, easy-to-wear dresses in the 1970s, we doubt the designer (now president of the CFDA) knew just how popular the style would be. Some forty years later, the classic long-sleeved, v-necked dress is still available as part of Von Furstenberg's fashion empire, and is copied widely across the entire fashion industry.
So if you love fashion, having a DVF wrap dress in your wardrobe is a no-brainer (I almost sold mine once but had a change of heart at the last minute). This blue version is a bit of a cooler take on the style, with a sheer panel with spots that gives it a youthful edge. Plus it's half price at the Outnet, making it a great bargain.
It's when you put a DVF wrap dress on that you realise why it has such lasting success. The heavy silk-jersey drapes beautifully, never clings where you don't want it to, and won't show every lump and bump of your underwear (provided you wear the right stuff). it's the little details in the cut and fabric that make the original a cut above the cheap department store copies. If you've got the cash to splash, invest in this dress and you won't be disappointed!
