Spring 2014, for New York retailers, is all about dresses: Fit and flare and skater dresses. The fit and flare, a hold out from the fifties, never goes out of style. It’s become more ever so slightly edgier with time, with shorter hemlines, less flare at the skirt, and more visible shoulders. However, it will forever retain its girly and feminine aura.
The skater dress, an even shorter version of the fit and flare, delves into the cutesy end of girly. And, is particularly desirous of teenage crushes.
With the right accessory, the fit and flare is versatile for any occasion, all ages and styles. Perfect for the work place, underneath a blazer and pumps, flats or boots; or with a cardigan along with sneakers or sandals for a casual outing. And most definitely, great and comfortable for girls night out and dates.
The simplicity of the dress makes it perfect for elaborate and colorful prints, as well as elegant and ornate textures and patterns.
