Extended Style Notes

Topshop Petite Striped V-Neck Wrap Dress – Size 6P

What I loved…

  • Deep V-neck - As a pear-shaped gal with a small chest, I love this trend because it accentuates what I do have. I featured this trend in my Spring Trend Guide and decided to feature it again since I saw it continuing on the Fall runways. For my Spring guide, I interpreted this trend very casually so this time wanted to show a dressed up version.
  • Midi Length – I love that this wrap dress is slightly longer, which makes it a nice transitional length for fall. (Center front from waist =25’’)
  • Stripes - I love the striped fabric of this dress because it looks very menswear-inspired. The combination of the feminine wrap silhouette and menswear fabric makes this dress unique and unexpected.

 What could be better…

  • Little breezy – The wrap skirt portion of the dress doesn’t extend very far so if you have wider hips (40’’+) like me, I would recommend wearing a slip underneath.

 

Garment measurements:

Center front (from waist) = 25''

Waist = 29''

Bust = 33''
