White fitted and flare dresses provide the ideal combination of elegance and texture, perfect for formal events like work. Team them with tailored blazers or bolero jackets for added formality on special occasions like prom.
Fit and flare silhouettes can be flattering for women of any body type. The fitted bodice emphasizes your waistline, while the flared skirt adds movement and grace to hips and thighs.
What is a fit and flare dress?
Fit and flare dresses are an attractive style of wedding gown that fits closely at the bodice before flaring out at the bottom, creating an eye-catching and feminine silhouette that flatters every body type. Similar to trumpet and mermaid silhouettes, fit and flare dresses help flatter and slim the body shape of their wearers.
Fit and flare dresses are an excellent option for women with pear, hourglass, or apple-shaped bodies as they emphasize their waistline and create harmony between hips and thighs. Furthermore, their fitted bodice works to camouflage an undisciplined midsection or an unflattering stomach when worn cinched at the most minor point of your waistline.
Fit and flare dresses can be combined with different shoes and accessories to create an outfit suitable for any event or occasion. Casual daytime outings call for comfortable flats or sandals, while formal or dressy occasions call for heeled pumps or wedges to elevate your look and add height and volume to your body frame.
One of the most frequently asked questions at WONA Bridal Shop is how to differentiate between fit-and-flare, trumpet, and mermaid wedding dresses. All three styles offer figure-hugging silhouettes suitable for most body types, the main distinction being that fit-and-flare styles start their flare higher up on the bodice, while trumpet and mermaid gowns feature more noticeable flare at either the thigh or knee area.
Does a fit and flare dress hide a tummy?
Fit and flare dresses provide a flattering silhouette for women with any body type – straight or curvier. Their distinctive fitted bodice emphasizes your waist while their flared skirt skims over your lower body to create a feminine and graceful figure, making you feel confident and chic in no time! Additionally, this dress style can be worn effortlessly from casual outings to formal events!
Finding an effective fit and flare dress to conceal your tummy can be done through various strategies, such as selecting the appropriate fabric, silhouette, and accessories. Light and breathable fabrics should be selected so as to be comfortable during wear; choose flowy silhouettes in order to give an illusion of a slimmer figure; waist placement matters too: too high can make you appear pregnant while placing it just above your natural waist can provide a longer leaner silhouette.
Trapeze dresses are an effective way of concealing tummies because they help elongate and add volume to hip areas. Petite frames may find this style especially helpful since it doesn’t cling to their bodies like some styles may do; for taller frames, consider considering midi trapeze dresses instead, with belts or shrugs adding even more volume to your look.
What top to wear with flares?
Flare jeans pair perfectly with higher tops that draw attention to your decolletage, creating the illusion that you appear taller. If crop tops don’t do it for you, try a form-fitting tank top instead with snug-fitting underwire cups that sit snugly at your bust line; alternatively, a one-shoulder neckline works to elongate arms further still.
Flare jeans look especially great paired with a fitted satin coat. The luxurious texture contrasts beautifully against denim’s ruggedness and casual charm, making this ensemble suitable for more dressy events – brunch with friends or business meetings, perhaps?
Wide-leg pants make an eye-catching combination with fitted jackets. The long coat creates an elongated silhouette while adding visual interest through its striking color contrast.
Combining dark flare jeans with a trendy blazer and timeless white heels is also an easy way to elevate them for everyday errands or going out for casual dinner dates with friends.
For an on-trend and modern look, pair high-waisted flare jeans with a cropped blazer in pastel or black shades, completing it with matching pumps or strappy heels to complete this stylish ensemble for a night out with friends.
What shoes to wear with flares?
Add sophistication and create the illusion of longer legs with heels! Choose a heel height that best matches your taste and proportions of jeans; low kitten heels work particularly well when worn with flare jeans, while higher stiletto heels create a more elegant appearance. When your jeans feature shorter hems, pointed pumps may help prevent them from dragging along the ground while giving a peek-a-boo effect that adds sophistication.
Sneakers provide a casual yet comfortable alternative that works well with almost any flare jeans outfit. Choose neutral-toned sneakers for timeless classic style or bolder colors for bolder statements. When pairing sneakers with flare jeans, be sure to hem them just above your shoes to prevent getting caught.
Pair your flare jeans with ankle boots in dark wash or black shades for an edgy and stylish look. Add an urban chic vibe with a fitted or oversized leather moto jacket, then complete the ensemble with either a fitted turtleneck top tucked fully or partially into jeans, as well as some chic Marc Fisher-styled strappy booties, or tall heeled sandals with sophistication, stretch (read comfort) and stability such as these Marc Fisher sandals that provide elegance, stretch (read comfort), and stability – these pieces complete your ensemble perfectly!
