Good morning, Friday.
This draped, flowing dress…can you imagine the way it moves? The way it feels on skin?
Because that’s all we can do – imagine. This stunning perfection, made by Donna Karan and available at Net-A-Porter, is $3,295.
I love draped dresses in general, though. They’re flattering for absolutely every occasion: I can wear them on hot days and feel cool, on cold days with cardigans and tights (I love the already-layered look of draped dresses), when I’m feeling body-conscious and want to hide my torso from the world, and when I’m feeling positively radiant and want something striking to show myself off.
Besides, whenever I wear layered dresses I feel like a waterfall.
Warehouse Waterfall Drape Dress: £45.00 (about $72)
I might actually sell myself for this one. Indentured dress slavery. Indressery. Dravery.
This color is perfect, and the draping does everything I want it to: a slight asymmetry at the neckline, a flowing center, and a straight hemline. No jewelry necessary.
In my perfect world, casual days would also be draped days.
A little more pricey than I’d like, but $138 isn’t three thousand. This would be stunning on a willowy body type.
Dear Topshop: Please rename this dress something without the word “nude” in it, then send me one. Kay, thanks, hugs.
Calvin Klein Matte Jersey Drape Top Dress:
Calvin Klein is such a great brand. Everything I’ve ever purchased by this designer has stood the test of time in wear and style. I’m a huge fan.
Wyatt Capri Jersey Draped V-Neck Dress:
If those side panels were pockets, I could die a happy woman.
ASOS Drape Dress with Open Back: £35.00 (about $56)
Open backs that still allow me to wear a bra? Priceless. (Still, $56 for a dress like this is a steal in my book.)
