Fit and Flare Dress
Characterized by a fitted upper body that comes down to your waistline and gets flowy and flouncy afterward, the fit-and-flare dress owes it popularity to Christian Dior when he introduced his first collection the “New Look” creation in 1947. This style is essentially a vintage one, but has served generations after generations. From Judy Garland to Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe to Julie Andrews, fit-and-flare dresses have been adored and appreciated by all. While cocktail fit-and-flares are perfect for sporting a funky, flirty appearance, wedding dresses with this design endorse a graceful getup. The main reason making it a closet staple for all is that the flared end conceals the heavy lower body for pear-shaped women and gives a fuller appearance by adding volume to slim figures.
