Though it can be argued they never really went away, fit and flare dresses are an absolute necessity this spring as they’re more versatile and attention-grabbing than ever. This sweet silhouette is flattering to most as it is fitted at the narrowest part of the waist and flares out over the hips.
We love fit and flare frocks in lace and we love them in leather, we adore them in black, printed, white, bright, pastel, we love them however! Pair one with your favourite leather jacket and espadrille wedges and you have all you need for a chic date or night-out look, or take a cue from this Mark Fast runway look for a pretty day or night look in a black crocheted dress like this Reiss Naomi one.
On-trend ankle-strap heels, like these Michael Antonio pumps, are going to be another staple in your spring wardrobe and help elongate the leg for the modest hemline and skirt volume. Length is important- too long will be too covered-up, while too short can be costumey. We love the above-the-knee length. Your spring just got a bit more flirty with these feminine frocks popping up everywhere.
