While there are many things that radiate a feminine vibe, there are few that are as flattering as a flared dress—and luckily for you, the flared dress is having a pretty major moment in the spotlight right now. In today’s Trend Report, we are going to look at who is wearing this flirty look—like Taylor Swift and Emmy Rossum, to name just two—how they’re wearing it, plus how you can make this look your own. So what are you waiting for? Click inside to discover all the need-to-know details on the flared dress trend.
Who is trying this trend?
All four of today’s muses are known for their feminine sense of style, so it makes perfect sense that they are leading the way when it comes to the flared dress trend. They are: actress Emmy Rossum, actress Dianna Agron, actress Lucy Hale, and singer Taylor Swift.
How are they styling it?
There are a myriad of ways to style your flared dress, but there is one key item that all four of today’s muses have in common: a girly shoe. For instance, Emmy opted for a flat, strappy sandal, while Dianna opted for a sophisticated pump. Lucy stayed true to her youthful looks by wearing her flared dress with a chunky platform heel, while Taylor stayed equally true to her girly looks by pairing her dress with a low peep-toed sandal. Another thing that all four of our muses have in common is a minimalist vibe. Instead of loading up on accessories, all four have opted to let their dress take the spotlight and added just shoes and a bag. In fact, the main point of difference between the four is simply the prints and colors they have chosen—and this is where you can make the look your own, by picking a print or color palette that suits you. And on that note…
