Faux Wrap

A signature of the Lisa dress, this feature helps to cover the stomach, while also creating lovely definition in the waist. 


Available in two lengths, knee-length and floor-length. Knee-length versions fall right at or just above the knee, depending on your height. Floor-length versions feature a petal wrap that opens up to allow for easy movement and to show a little extra skin on the legs.


With sleeveless, feminine flounce and elbow sleeve options available, there’s a sleeve that’s suitable for any style preference. 


From ultra-soft crushed velvet to stretch knit to embroidered metallic knit, the fabrics used to make all the versions of the Lisa Dress have a certain degree of stretch. The result is a figure-flattering look and an ultra comfortable fit, giving you confidence and ease of movement.


Why are these styles good for daytime? These dresses are made with a stretch knit, so they’re comfortable to wear all day, hold you in at the right places and move with your body. Additionally, these styles create a flattering silhouette, have elbow sleeves that provide added coverage and are easy to put on in the morning and wear all day without any hassle.

Plus, the non-wrinkling nature of the fabric means these dresses are ideal for travel and for transitioning from day-to-night. You’ll look just as polished after wearing them for several hours as you did at the beginning of the day!

Why are these good for nighttime? They’re form-fitting, figure-flattering and have elbow sleeves for added coverage and warmth. They also offer an elevated look without being super fancy. The dress moves with you, enabling you to feel comfortable and confident knowing you’ll look good all night. 

It’s super easy to dress up too - just add jewelry and heels!
