WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF FIT AND FLARE DRESSES?
Well, that depends on what era of fashion you feel like channeling today:
50’s Fit And Flare Dresses: Rockabilly style began influencing fashion in the 1950’s, and this is the era when swing dresses, fit-and-flare dresses, and sleeveless midi dresses first made their debut! (Think Marilyn in her timeless, white halter-top dress). Fit-and-flare dresses with tie-neck collars became a fashion must-have, and don’t forget the prints! Polka-dot fit-and-flare dresses, plaid fit-and-flare dresses, and deep emerald green fit-and-flare dresses have been stealing hearts ever since.
60’s Fit And Flare Dresses: In the 1960’s, all manners of fit-and-flare mini dresses became mainstream! Fit-and-flare dresses with Peter Pan collars, sleeveless fit-and-flare dresses, belted fit-and-flare dresses, and FINALLY fit-and-flare dresses with pockets! Bold floral print fit-and-flare dresses, leopard print fit-and-flare dresses, and colorblock fit-and-flare dresses are still fashion hallmarks of this iconic era.
70’s Fit And Flare Dresses: Fit-and-flare dresses with bold geometric prints can be traced back to the 1970s fashion era. Pinafore dresses made a comeback in the 70’s, and the disco era made way for sequin fit-and-flare dresses and velvet fit-and-flare dresses.
