This is the word I have picked for today’s post. Being Spanish and having lived so many years overseas I end up having a “Spanglish” as mother tongue and a lack of the appropiate word sometime.. what I studied has nothing to do with fashion and so this is a great way to learn and share, in case you are in the same situation as me.
Ok, back our our fashionese Dictionary. “Fit and Flare” is an adjective used to describe garments that are close fitting at the top and flare out towards the hem. Examples include the “fit and flare skirt” or the “fit and flare dress”.
I have a skirt I absolutely adore that is of this kind. This skirt has been part of my staples since my Jamaican times because it is super comfy, covers your legs and in my case, I have the feeling it would protect me from the mosquito bites without being thick trousers. On top of all this, they look great as this siluette is very feminine. They come back in fashion from time to time and I always buy 1 or 2..
Do you have some fit and flare garment that you love and would want to share? We will add it to the visual Fashionese Dictionary on the Facebook Fan page of the blog!!. Please send your look to firstname.lastname@example.org or to the blog’s facebook page, the twitter or the instagram.
I leave you with the pics of a look I put together with my black fit and flare skirt. These pics we took after a lunch with some friends at Little Bangkok, a cute nice thai restaurant in JLT. Disregard the belly, the food was too good not to eat it all! Lol.
