A simple wrap dress—that's all it is. But every time I've worn one particular dress from Warehouse, I've gotten compliments. I've thought a lot about why it works for me: It emphasises my small waist, it hides the bits I would rather forget about and it's flattering on the bust without making me feel exposed. It also slightly slits up the middle, has the ideal sleeve length for my petite arms and comes in a floral pattern that's not too elegant. Other than my wedding dress, I've never had so many people tell me how great I look. And now Holly Willoughby has cottoned onto this fantastic high-street brand for flattering silhouettes. The shop in question? Warehouse.
Happily, there are plenty of other dresses from Warehouse that will deliver a similarly pretty silhouette—and other girls in the Who What Wear office swear by the brand's flattering pattern-cutting. From sparkling party frocks to dresses that are ideal for a wedding, there are so many styles to choose from. Even better, you can wear them with sneakers or heels, creating so many more outfit options (meaning you can milk it for even more compliments). Below I've selected some of the best Warehouse dresses you don't want to miss out on.
