Within the past few months, I’ve been paying more attention to the clothes and shoes that make me feel good. Which silhouettes flatter my body type? Which shoes make me stand taller? I’ve realized there are some pieces that never feel quite right on me (and tend to sit in my closet until I’m ready to face the facts…) and other items that make me feel like the best possible version of myself. One of those magically transformative pieces? The fit and flare dress. I’d like to collect one in every color, fabrication, and pattern under the sun. They make me feel girly, slender, and more confident than anything that clings to my hips or legs. This patterned dress from Nordstrom is one of my newly acquired favorites…
Clove honeycomb pattern fit and flare sweater dress // Ray-Ban sunglasses // Tom Ford Flamingo lipstick // Essie Fiesta nail polish // Alice + Olivia heels (available here in black, similar navy styles here)
This is actually a heavier knit than I expected, which makes it a perfect little sweater dress for fall. And I love the hexagon print — smaller on top to slim the waist and bigger at the bottom as it flares out. Shop more of my favorite fit and flare dresses from Nordstrom here:
