When Kate Middleton chose to wear a simple yet elegant satin wrap dress for her first post-engagement press call to Prince William of Britain, she made a fashion statement.
The fact that the-princess-to-be tossed high end couture in favour of a dress from the little-known Brazilian designer Issa, struck a common chord with young fashionistas.
While international blogs are all praise for her simple look fashion stores too, are reporting major sales of wrap dresses similar to what Kate wore, not just in the UK, but globally too. Closer home, in Bollywood too, the wrap dress has been making many red carpet appearances.
Designer Alpana of Alpana Neeraj says, “It’s incredible that Kate wore a dress that can be aspirational for every fashion-loving young girl. She didn’t choose a style that is too hoity-toity and that’s the charm of it.”
If you want to sport a similar look, without being flashy, then you need to shop wisely and make sure it suits your body type.
