The Dress That Flatters Every Body
The fit & flare dress. It adds curves to boyish figures and accentuates waists while minimizing womanly thighs and booties. It comes with sleeves for those that need coverage and sleeveless if you prefer to show those lovely limbs. It works for both tall women and petite ones. The perfect dress style for an endless number of occasions and situations. Here are some of our top picks, from affordable to designer. Plus, how we styled one dress for work and the weekend.
1 | REISS This classic cut is available in both red and black, and will take you from a parents’ association meeting to the office to cocktails. Layer with a blazer and add pumps for a more professional vibe.
2 | Donna Karan New York The cutouts, slimming line, and tulle layer peeking out at the bottom make this dress extra special.
3 | Ted Baker The dark top paired with a floral skirt is ideal for minimizing broad shoulders and adding curves to slim hips.
4 | Cupcakes & Cashmere Everyone needs a basic Little Black Dress in their closet and this one designed by super blogger Emily Schuman is well-cut and affordable.
5 | Prabal Gurung The color-blocking in this modern dress makes it super slimming by nipping in at the waist and drawing the eye down.
6 | Ostwald Helgason This LBD with colorful flair at the bottom slims and flatters, but still makes a statement. (On Sale!)
7 | Sejour The mixed media blend in color-of-the-year marsala is totally on-trend and designed for curvy figures.
8 | Rebecca Taylor This Chanel-inspired tweed dress is ideal for the lady who lunches or working professional mom. Ladylike tweed is quite possibly our favorite fall fabric.
9 | Eloquii Another terrific choice in plus sizes, this pretty wine-colored frock with short sleeves will work for a multitude of occasions.
10 | REISS Almost but not quite off-the-shoulder, this sexy slimming dress has a youthful and classy vibe that we are embracing.
Here’s how we’re wearing this fit & flare for days at the office and weekends with our family.
