9 Celebrities Show Us How To Wear Fitted Clothing With Some Flare

By: Emily Reid,

Is there any woman out there who doesn’t want a defined waist and figure-flattering look? We didn’t think so. If you have a hard time finding feminine styles and shapes, or you want to make your midsection look slimmer, this is the perfect dress for you. A fit and flare dress does exactly that--fits you tightly on the top half, and flares out at the skirt.

Fit and flare dresses are great for any woman since they accommodate for all sizes and shapes. They work well on any age so you can rock one in your 20’s or your 80’s. This silhouette never goes out of style and even fashion icons like Audrey Hepburn used to sport this style.

The full skirt covers hides hips, while the fitted bodice accents your smaller midsection. Find a style you like, either a higher hemline to show off your legs, a patterned all-over fabric which keeps the eyes moving and doesn't highlight any particular feature, or a lovely V-neck to accent your bust. Here are 9 celebs showing us how to wear the fit and flare look in the gallery below.
