Fit & Flare Women’s Dresses
With their structured waists and graduating skirts, fit-and-flare dresses hold a special place in every woman’s wardrobe. Our selection centers around ultra-feminine designs, with a focus on vintage-inspired necklines and delightful prints. If you’re looking to liven up your office wear, our fit-and-flare dresses are an excellent choice. They rival pencil skirts and sheath dresses with their flattering silhouettes and can be easily layered under blazers or jackets to create a formal outfit. The key is to look out for dark colors, such as deep gem tones and monochromes that pair perfectly with traditional black suiting. Plain pieces can be worn in a range of different ways throughout the working week: team with a small pendant and a bracelet watch for understated elegance or slip on a lively silk scarf and contrasting heels for a more adventurous take on formalwear.
Many of the fit-and-flare dresses in our edit pay homage to the well-dressed women of the past and are brought into the present day with impeccable craftsmanship and the finest fabrics. Channel Hollywood icons with dresses that sport full, flowing skirts that hit just below the knee. Retro-inspired necklines have the same effect: embrace styles that cut elegantly along the collar. Trend-led accessories ensure your outfit feels contemporary: pair with a box clutch and wedges for an eye-catching evening ensemble.
It’s All in the Detailing
True to the WHBM ethos, each fit-and-flare dress features delightful details for a distinguished touch. Keep an eye out for formal dresses with practical accents, such as hidden pockets at the waist. Knit linings help to create a smooth and streamlined profile, while concealed zip fastenings don’t interrupt the flow of our beautiful prints. Functional finishes aside, many of our waisted dresses have visually pleasing details that breathe life into ageless pieces. Discover mesh and lace inlays that add depth to designs, and jacquard fabrics which serve both pattern and texture. A ‘less is more’ approach with accessories allows these embellishments to be the focal point of your outfit — slip one of our fit-and-flare dresses on with nude heels and simple silver jewelry to draw attention to your look.
