Fit-and-flare dresses are super popular this year and for good reason — they’re incredibly flattering and very versatile. I own a couple dresses in this shape, one of which is sleeveless, and I’ve found it to be the most versatile. You can wear things over it and under it, and if it’s a ponte-knit then it’s easily dressed up or dressed down.
Pick one up this spring … you’ll find it will become your go-to dress for picnics, parties, church, and even lounging!

For a dressier look, try a monochromatic look with a turtleneck and tights underneath. Add some heels and a stack of sparkly bracelets or necklaces and some red lips to complete the dressy look.
