When you purchased your wrap skirt, you may have only envisioned wearing it as a skirt. However, a lengthy wrap skirt can also double as a wrap dress. Transforming your skirt into a dress does not take any special skill or tools. In fact, it is so simple that you can wear your wrap as a skirt and change it into a dress while on the go. With a little creativity, your wrap skirt will become one of the most versatile pieces in your closet.


Shoulder Tie

Hold the skirt by its two top corners. Drape the skirt over the left or right side of your body, so that it covers one side of your torso.

Hold the two corners on the opposite side of your body, near your armpits. Switch each corner to the opposite hand.

Pull the corners under your arm, so they cross at your armpit. Pull the corners threw the arm and up to your shoulder. Knot the corners at the top of your shoulder.

Neck Tie

Hold the skirt by the two top corners. Drape it behind your back, so it covers your middle to lower back, buttocks and the back of your legs. Your upper back and shoulders will remain bare.

Pull the two corners up the sides of your torso, under your armpits and to the front of your chest. This action will pull the skirt in, so it covers the front of your body.

Switch each corner to the opposite hand, so they cross at your chest. Pull the corners up and tie the skirt behind your neck.

Chest Tie

Hold the skirt by its two top corners. Pull it behind your back, so it hangs down your back, buttocks and the back of your legs.

Pull the two corners under your armpits and to the front of your chest. This action will pull the skirt in, so it covers the front of your body.

Tie the corners in the middle of your chest above your breasts. Alternatively, pull both corners to the left or right side of your breasts and tie them there to create a side tie. This style will expose one thigh more than the other.

Tips

  • Tie your dress tightly to avoid any accidents.

  • Wear a light slip dress underneath to protect against accidental exposure.
