Just me, or does the idea of fashion forces Gwenyth Paltrow and Victoria Beckham combining powers make you giddy? It happened recently when GP donned a VB design at an event in LA. The look not only caught my eye because of Gwyneth’s usually impeccable style, but also because her neon purple frock is a vivid example of one of this season’s hottest silhouette: fit and flare dresses.
With defined waists and voluminous skirts, fit and flare dresses look good on almost every shape and are perfect for Summer. Their flared skirts are essentially aggrandized A-line skirts, capable of both hiding curves if you’ve got ’em and creating them if you don’t. GP’s frock is just the right amount of bright and the right amount of flare, though I’m not an enamored of the $2000 price tag (and that’s just the dress!). Fear not Foxes, with a little clever shopping, you can snag her fun, flirty look for under $150.
