The Trend Report: Fit and Flare Skirts
Chanel Haute Couture Fall 2013

On the opposite end of the spectrum, a leather flounce at the them gives a black basic skirt a little edge.

Slim-cut, straight pencil and miniskirts aren't always the most flattering option for everyone, which is why we're loving the cute fit and flare styles seen most recently on the Chanel haute couture runway earlier this month.

A fit and flare style is, like its moniker, fitted at the top and then flounces out at the bottom, usually in the form of a cute ruffle. Appropriate for a night out or a day at the office, we're fans of the fit and flare skirt -- pick one up now for a mid-summer treat, or save a leather style for later this fall.
