Dress Obsessed:
The Fit-And-Flare

Endlessly versatile, incredibly comfortable and flattering on every figure, the fit-and-flare is the dress we’re living in this spring. With a fitted upper body that nips in at the waist and then lets loose, the fit-and-flare dress looks just as good with pockets as without, comes in every sleeve type and length imaginable and can be worn everywhere, for every occasion. Our women’s style guru, Lexi Clayburn, shares her favorite ways to wear our fit-and-flare dresses this spring.

Rough It Up

A leather jacket gives a fresh edge to this feminine shape.
Complete the tomboy vibe with simple sneakers and you’re ready to run
all the errands and go against the current at the same time.

Work It Out

Layer an oxford shirt underneath a sleeveless fit-and-flare for a look that
makes this genius dress even smarter. Finish the look with borrowed-from-the-boys
loafers for an outfit that beats the boardroom stalwarts.

Spin It Around

The free-flowing skirt of a fit-and-flare perfectly lends itself to dance-floor
spins, which should be taken liberally at every party this spring. Slip on a pair of
block-heel sandals and some serious sparklers and go wherever the night takes you.


Wherever you’re going this spring, the fit-and-flare is sure to be a perfect fit. Find the fit-and-flare for you.
