CULT BUY: The wrap dress you can feel good about buying.

It’s rare to find a dress so honourable and dependable, you could pull it straight off the hanger and put it onto your body without even so much as a glance in the mirror.

But when you do, you hold on tight – and buy up in every colour, naturally.

The wrap dress is one such garment, and there’s a good chance you’ve never met one that didn’t love you back.

Accentuating all the right bits, the magical wrap dress silhouette has a knack for making pretty much every woman feel like a solid 10.

As if the humble wrap dress hasn’t got enough on its plate, one particular design is now helping to make the world a better place for women and girls.

Named after Channel Nine TV presenter and media personality, Shelly Horton, ‘The Shelly’ tribute dress will flatter your lovely bum while raising much-needed funds for disadvantaged women and children.

Listen: Mia Freedman talks to Maggie Alderson about fashion for women over 40. Post continues after audio. 

Designed and made in Australia, the Leina Broughton dress comes in two shades – navy and ‘red oriental’ – and both knee and maxi length options ($249 and $279 respectively).

You can dress it up with heels, down with sneakers or flats, even cosy it up with tights, boots and a leather jacket in the cooler months. Hell, throw it on over your cossie at the beach while you’re at it too.

Best of all, $25 from every dress sale will go to Quota, an not-for-profit organisation based in Coolum, QLD that supports charities in their local community.

Raising funds for charities such as the Hear & Say Centre, St Vincent de Paul Society, Salvation Army Emergency Accommodation and Coolum Meals on Wheels (just to name a few), Quota has been a part of Shelly’s life for as long as she can remember – her mum, Lindy has been volunteering with Quota for over 26 years.
