A fail-safe outfit that works for virtually any occasion, a wrap dress is a wardrobe must-have. And the best wrap dresses offer stylish versatility and adjustability. There is, however, quite a bit of range among them. Of course, designer Diane Von Furstenberg is famous for the iconic original but you can also find more affordable options that are perfect for channeling that effortlessly polished look. You’ll also find plenty of casual wrap dresses for everyday and trend-driven versions that feel just right for nights out.

The most classic form of the wrap dress features clean lines with a crossover bodice and a sash tie belt. Thus, most of the picks below will be true wrap dresses with a belt that threads through the waist, but a faux wrap — sometimes called a surplice — offers a similar look if you don’t want to fiddle with ties (or risk showing more skin than intended).

A wrap dress with a knee-length hem and longer sleeves can be worn to the office, a business dinner, or a more formal ceremony. Look for Tencel twill and wrinkle-free jersey — especially great if you travel — with menswear inspiration like shirt collar lapels or a sheath-style top to bring home that boss energy. More casual iterations are often sleeveless, and they usually come in cotton or rayon for breezy ease (plus you have leeway to play with your prints like florals and polka dots). And formal wrap dresses abound in luxe fabrics like lace and velvet and in floor-length styles that beg for a dinner or wedding invite.

Ahead, nearly two dozen of the best wrap dresses for every event on your calendar.


The Quintessential Wrap Dress

A wrap dress in its most classic form, Lark & Ro’s version is an Amazon fashion favorite. Long sleeves and a curving knee-length tulip hem are appropriate virtually anywhere, while extra gathers at the waist emphasize the style’s signature shape. It features a simple tie closure but inside is a hidden button for an additional layer of security. Shoppers also praised the wrinkle-free jersey fabric for looking just as fresh coming out of a suitcase as it does going in. “I usually wear designer dresses, but got sick of the prices. I promise, this dress is just as good,” one shopper raved.

I received so many compliments on it and everyone was surprised when I said it was from amazon!!” It has all the hallmarks of a graceful wrap in evening-ready satin with tonal leopard print and lantern sleeves. Dress it down with chic flats or take it out for cocktails in your highest heels — the high-low hem works equally well for both.

A Chic Little Black Wrap Dress With Pockets

Downtown fashion-girl style gets crossed with inspiration from the corner office in The Drop’s wrap shirt dress with French cuffs and a peaked lapel collar. Subtle shoulder pads sharpen up its silhouette like a blazer, and the fluid Tencel twill has a satin sheen and thick drape that feels more expensive than it is. “I love it. A tad short and I'm short (5'2"), but I could also see wearing this in the Fall with faux leather leggings and heels,” one shopper noted. “I love the wrap style and the fun sleeves. Definitely a winner!” (Reviewers also echoed the recommendation to try it out as a sophisticated tunic top over pants or leggings.)

Such quality fabric too. It is thick and heavy and just flows off the top of my hips,” one shopper gushed. “The top is fitted really nicely and you can even adjust the amount of cleavage you want displayed due to the nice elasticity of the fabric up top.”

The Faux Wrap Sweater Dress That’s Made For Date Nights

A sweater dress beloved by Amazon shoppers, this little number has a solid skirt with a batwing wrap bodice that’s drapey without being overly daring. The slouchy wrap is discreetly anchored across that back with a matching knit band. Let it slip off one shoulder if you want, or wear the whole thing as an off-the-shoulder number for date nights. There are no belt loops to hold onto that sash, so just keep that in mind when washing. Regardless, the knit is soft and heavy with a silken finish thanks to a choice blend of polyester with viscose. “This is one of those finds that will restore your faith after a bunch of bad choices,” one reviewer raved. “It runs true to size, thick, well cut, fits the body nicely [...] Dress it up with heels, or down with leggings and boots, works both ways.”

I couldn’t be happier.” If this pick scores high points with you, you’ll probably also like the brand’s long-sleeved wrap dress in the same fabric.

A Sleek Faux Wrap Dress In The Best Patterns

Pattern-lovers, take note: tie-dye, leopard, and a bouquet of florals are just some of the colorways you can snag this faux wrap dress in.

In a rayon and spandex blend, it feels ultra-stretchy and delightfully soft no matter how you wear it. “This is one of my staple work dresses. I wear it with a camisole. It's light enough for summer, but pairs well with tights and a cropped cardigan in cooler temperatures,” a reviewer commented. “It washes and dries well on normal settings, no bleeding, fading, shrinking, pulling, or wrinkling (so far). An all around winner.”

A DVF-Worthy Collared Wrap Dress

Excellent material quality, durable, does not wrinkle, looks expensive and fits very well,” a reviewer praised.

To maintain its freshly-pressed finish, it’s made from the same great wrinkle-resistant jersey as Lark & Ro’s other bestselling wrap dresses. (One reviewer wadded it up in their carry-on and was shook when it came out crease-free.) “This would be a great dress to wear to work and then out after. You can tell by the quality of the fabric that it will wash and wear well,” another shopper observed. If you already have lots of traditional wrap dresses, this is a good one to branch out with.

The luxe jewel-toned fabric is decidedly thick and warm with plenty of stretch, making it a good choice for events that could last well into the night. You can purchase the velvet dress with short or long sleeves depending on what you think you’ll need. “So soft, luxurious and doesn’t feel cheap. It looks very well made. Overall very happy,” one buyer commented.

A Faux Wrap Dress With Girls-Night-Out Energy

This fashionable twist on the wrap dress was made for painting the town. The asymmetrical wrap skirt and plunge neckline are stylish and a little bit sexy — plus, there are options for sleeveless styles that look just as fierce. The front of the dress is double-lined by nature and its thick polyester knit boasts plenty of stretch. “I can’t say enough good things about it. It’s super soft and stretchy but not thin and flimsy. The size and fit are perfect,” one shopper wrote. “I’ve lost track of how many compliments I’ve gotten while wearing it and its now my go-to LBD for everything. I may need to buy another just to have as back up.”

This one is made from a rayon-based jersey that’s buttery-soft and drapes like a dream. “Makes me feel like a femme fatale on an honest day,” one shopper declared. “It has a nice (but not overdone) vintage cut, the fabric does actually drape well, and it is comfortable.”

This Faux Wrap Sweater Dress With A Pleated Skirt

This gorgeous wrap sweater dress looks department-store luxe, and its versatile style works for so many occasions.

A Belted Shirt Dress For The Look Of Wrap With A Little More Security

Sweetly sophisticated in high-shine satin with the same classic genetics that a wrap dress features, this belted shirt dress is an expensive-looking find you can’t score anywhere else — plus, since it buttons down the front, you don’t have to worry about any wardrobe malfunctions. The bodice is dramatically tailored at the waist over a flaring pleated skirt, which hides a pair of *pockets* that are always going to be convenient. The puffed elbow sleeves and sash tie waist would look at home behind a desk, but the luminous fabric means it’s a natural at dressy events, too.

Also Worth Considering: This Stunning Satin Slip Dress With A Drawstring Hem

Given that half the appeal of a wrap dress is its beautiful lines with complete adjustability, you might want to consider this trendy drawstring slip dress as well.

Easily passes for a much more expensive dress. Worth the purchase,” one fan praised.
