I Love This Flattering Wrap Dress So Much, I've Worn It Once a Week For an Entire Year
I had been on a quest for the perfect little black dress for months, without any luck. I am a big-time shopper, so I'm not exaggerating when I say I tried on hundreds of options. Finally, on a Friday, sifting through the racks of Nordstrom, I came across this Topshop Ruffle Minidress ($55). I immediately ran into the fitting room, and even under unflattering, harsh lighting, I looked great in the piece. I loved it so much, I bought it in two colors on the spot.
That was a year ago, and I still find myself reaching for that same dress every weekend when I'm going out. So what makes it so special? For starters, it's a wrap dress, which is a universally flattering silhouette for women. I have a curvier, hourglass figure, and this dress lays in all the right places — it cinches my waist, shows off just a hint of cleavage, and covers my upper arms. It ticks off all the boxes on my checklist.

The ruffled skirt adds a bit of movement, and the button-front closure allows me to never worry about my dress flying open (let's be real — that's a legitimate worry with wrap dresses). The 100 percent polyester fabric never creases or wrinkles, even when I'm sitting down. Its versatile silhouette allows me to style the look in many ways; I have worn the dress with sneakers and a denim jacket as well as with heels and a leather jacket.
I'm telling you: this is a magical dress. Buy one for yourself before it sells out and you'll be as obsessed as I am — pinky promise.
