The LWD: your festive season essential (sorry LBD!)


This Christmas it is all about the wrap dress. With a subtle nod to the 70s trend (Diane Von Furstenburg's original and iconic wrap dresses remain a 70s design classic, albeit it one out of budget for most of us). Popularised by everyone from Kate Middleton to Alexa Chung, the LWD (little wrap dress) is having a renaissance this festive season.


As Vogue says, “The look is versatile, and can go from the office to cocktail hour with a few simple styling tricks… Plus the waist cinching silhouette means that there’s a wrap dress out there to flatter just about every shape.”

And since those folk at Kettlewell are nothing if not helpful, they have not just one, but two wrap dresses to see you through every occasion this Christmas. So how should you be styling yours?

And if the Summer colours we’ve shown don’t match your personal palette, just mix it up! Try some of my favourite Christmas colour combinations:
