If you’ve been following my Wednesday Wishlist tradition for a month of Sundays then you’ll know by now that each week highlights the latest craze to hit both the blogosphere and the everyday high street; and if you pay closer attention you’ll know I never skimp when it comes to including my favourite picks as I go on an extensive online shopping hunt. This week’s focus is wrap dresses, of all kinds. Florals, ruffles, stripes, stars polka dots, long, short, probably too short for the bum conscious like me – you name it, I’ve got your back.
I’m sure you’re all familiar with what I’m talking about when I mention the fact these are almost all Realisation Par dupes; the luxury clothing line that surrounds Instagram as worn by those girl bosses who show how to work the attire that’s soared to cult status. I thought I’d grown out of pretty dresses a long time ago but this social media trend sucked me back in at full speed. They’re cutesy and feminine but classy and chic and all have that one specific charm – the tie over bow side, cliched at the waist for that extra defining leg; meaning whatever your frame it’s bound to be super flattering. I’m in love with pretty much every single one of these pieces, even the maxis and midis which I usually wouldn’t reach out for. I think as the weather forecast starts to pick up again my desire to hold a timeless dress to whip out for an easy, effortless delve into personal style is strong. They’re perfect for the summer, they’re perfect with heels, perfect with converse, perfect if you want to bring it out again in 5 years time, and I can’t get enough!
There’s 30 lust-worthy, affordable dresses for you to pine over and all identical to one you’d find on the original site. Just make sure people don’t check the label and you’ll be fine. In fact, more than fine. A walking, talking, sassy It Girl. You’re welcome.
