Fashion Math: Is a DVF Wrap Dress Really Worth More Than Three Months of Weekly Manicures?

Whether you have an important business meeting, a job interview where first impressions are key or a hot date with a guy you really like, there’s one iconic dress that’s perfect for all occasions: a Diane von Furstenberg wrap dress. Equal parts sophisticated and sexy, the wrap dress is there whenever you need it. This graphic black and white DVF wrap dress is the perfect example of just how versatile the silhouette can be when the print is right. The price, however, may seem a little wrong at first glance. You see, this dress is $365, which is more than you’d pay for three months worth of manicures. But with a little Fashion Math, you’ll see why the dress is the better buy.

If you wear your wrap dress just once a month for the next five years, it will cost you less every time you wear it than you probably pay for lunch. And yes, you really can wear this dress for five years. Longer than that, in fact. The colors and silhouette will never go out of style and DVF dresses are such good quality you’ll be able to pass them down to your daughter. That’s certainly more lasting than those manicure that require weekly maintenance.
