There are few pieces out there more versatile than the classic wrap dress. Invented by Diane von Furstenburg in 1974, wrap dresses now come in a variety of styles, patterns and silhouettes, from retro red polka dots to girlish florals.

Intended for women in the '70s who were entering the workforce and declaring their independence, the wrap dress was designed to be an easy, throw-it-on-and-go option. Since then, its accessibility has taken the dress from "Mad Men"-esque boardrooms to wine bar date nights and everywhere in between.
