Let the shape of your dress make the statement, and go for a minimalist style - you can skip ruffles and busy details - choose simple tank-style dresses in monochrome, your favourite new bright colour this season, or even a fun print. And the skirt can be long or short, or anything in between. You might think a flared skirt should start at the waist, but drop-waist flares are becoming increasingly popular this season, especially for daytime.
For the office, a simple tank dress should probably be worn with a little item jacket and elegant pumps, but for the evenings, kick off those heels, add some strappy sandals and sparkling accessories. Flats have also made a big comeback, you can wear your fav gladiators, or a new season ballerina for an extra feminine touch.
Reese Witherspoon looked terrific just before she made her baby announcement, wearing this kate spade Sonja dress, and Emma Watson walked the red carpet at the the Tribeca Film Festival looking fresh and fun in Miu Miu. Two recent examples of celebrities in the fit & flare trend!
