Swingy Fit & Flare Midi Dresses: 4 Reasons To Love Them!

1. Fit and Flare Midi Dresses are Waist Defining 

The fit and flare silhouette is super flattering, especially after 40 for a couple of reasons. With middle age comes with middle age spread, which often means a thicker waist, wider hips, and a heavier bottom.

This type of dress camouflages and corrects those problems by nipping in at the waist and softly flaring over the hips. The result is a smaller looking waist which is more youthful, plus a great way to downplay a bottom-heavy figure.

This gorgeous green satin fit and flare midi dress with the knotted front and asymmetrical neckline will make you look like a knock-out. Accent with Cinderella type slippers and a sleek black clutch. This outfit would be perfect for holiday time.

2. They’re a Flattering Length

How many times have you seen a dress you loved and wanted to buy only to realize it felt just too short for your age? Thank goodness we now have this new option. Fit and flare midi dresses range from hitting just below the end of the knee to a few inches below the knee.

It’s a more modest length than we’re used to and is actually very flattering. You can still show off your legs with a sexy pair of heels, or a pair of pretty flats works really well too.

This stunning pink velvet fit and flare midi takes your breath away. See the beautiful length? And I love the delicate line of faux buttons up and down the front and the glamorous pleated collar. This is one dress, I’d enjoy even if I just hung it in my closet (LOL!). It’s pure Hollywood.

 

 

3. Fit and Flare Midis are Ultra Feminine

This graceful style of dress has a 50’s inspired vibe that is ultrafeminine and romantic too. You can’t help but feel pretty in such a swingy full skirt. This pretty blue fit and flare midi is a little more casual and breezy than some.  The sweet tie neckline gives it a European feel. Can’t you just imagine wearing this dress in Paris and strolling through the local market? It would make a great travel dress.

4. They’re the Ideal Special Occasion Dress 

Got a cocktail party to attend? How about a wedding or a special dinner date? A fit and flare maxi is the perfect style of dress for a special event. It’s dressy and ladylike, but a little flirty too. Imagine how pretty you would look making your entrance in a swingy dress, or how you’d feel on the dance spinning around.

This sophisticated, purple fit and flare midi dress is a little dramatic than some of the fit, and flare dresses we have been looking at, but equally as lovely. Wear it with a classy chain bag and some edgy animal print heels to spice things up and look modern. This is so much prettier than a little black dress but just as classic and appropriate.

Will you be buying a fit and flare midi dress this fall. How about around holiday time?
