The Wrap Blouse Trend: Your Ultimate Guide

I'm all tied up in this seasons wrap blouse trend!

Although the tie around top was previously associated with grannies, dated 70s trends and those with a DVF fetish, the new take on the wrap blouse is chic, feminine and flattering for all body types.

Read on for the wrap blouses that have me wrapped around this trends metaphorical manicured finger, and how you can rock them!

The Ruffled Wrap Blouse

 When Little Miss Moffat met Debbie Harry and went to New York Fashion Week....

Ladies, I have a confession to make: this Zaful wrap blouse, is actually supposed to be a dress. Mind blown.

Although I may be 5ft 7, this 'dress' would fail to live up to its genre on anyone over 5ft. Although I was disappointed that this piece wasn't a dead ringer for the stunning Realisation Par star print dress, I'm still loving it as a wrap blouse.

In some sort of New-York fashion week-inspired daze (oh to have a Portkey to NYC)..., I teamed it with my trusty ripped boyfriend jeans, heeled loafers and baker boy hat. As for the sunglasses, Jake refers to them as my 'mad scientist' glasses but I think that they are giving all the right retro vibes.

If you are looking to fake a slimmer waist, the wrap blouse trend was made for you! This baby pulls you in in all the right places and even gives your...ahem..tatas a cheeky lift.

Those pear shaped ladies who wish to enhance their bust and balance out their figure should opt for a piece with ruffled edges.

As for me, this star print wrap blouse has the cutest modern nautical and Americana vibes. I adore the way the ruffles enhance my bust and balance out my bottom heavy figure.

Cheers to a long term love affair between the wrap top and my wardrobe!
