Wrap dresses: so easy to throw on, especially on days when you just don’t feel like thinking about what you’re going to wear. We’ve picked out 10 wrap dresses — all under $100! — that will treat you right.
You might have noticed a recent trend of tons and tons of drop-waist dresses. Likely, designers wanted to tie their collections to “The Great Gatsby,” which was supposed to come out at the end of last year. The film still isn’t out, but collections featuring Gatsby-inspired clothes are all over. We love a drop waist dress because it picks up 1920s style without looking like you’re wearing a costume. Above, 10 of our faves.

This “pinafore dress” from Zara is reminding me of one of those old-timey bathing suits from the 1800s, which is reminding me of the episode of “Seinfeld” where Newman wears one of those bathing suits while yelling “Olly olly oxen free!” and cannonballing into a pool, which is a lovely memory, but not really an image I want my fashion choices to evoke. I’ll take a pass. [$90, Zara]

I fell instantly in love with this red lace dress Emma Roberts wore to a party in Beverly Hills. It’s fun, flattering, and since I’m going through a red period right now (not as menstrual as it sounds), I’m especially taken with the color. Emma’s dress is by Style Stalker and costs $189, which is practically free in celebrity money, but still about double what I usually spend on a dress. I dug up three other pretty red lace dresses for $70 or less, from size 3 to 2X. Shopping details after the jump! Keep reading »
