How to Wear Fall's Gorgeous Fit-and-Flare Silhouette

View in slideshow

Burberry, Marchesa, and Stella McCartney showed fit-and-flare silhouettes all over their Fall runways and we can't wait to try out the silhouette for ourselves. Whether you prefer an all-out ladylike stance à la Marchesa or Stella McCartney's sportier spirit, it's all about choosing the right fit-and-flare shape for your body. Make sure the "fitted" part of the skirt or dress isn't too tight across your hips or thighs (your skirt will ride up and walking will become a problem) and always make sure to pair heels with this look to elongate your figure. Read below for a few more style pointers, then click the slideshow to shop our editors' picks.

  • Since fit-and-flare silhouettes veer on the feminine side of the style meter, temper the look with sleek pointy-toe pumps or patent ankle boots for a sleek Fall ensemble.
  • Want an extra smooth and seamless look? Wear Spanx underneath more body-con silhouettes for an overall slimming effect.
  • We love the idea of pairing a fit-and-flared miniskirt with a cozy turtleneck, tights, and textural vest once the temperature drops.
