As the little sister of the peplum trend and the drop-waist dress trend, the fit-and-flare skirt has big shoes to fill. Most notably displayed at Chanel's Haute Couture F/W '13 runway show, this skirt been turning heads recently in the fashion world.

The fit-and-flare shape is characterized by a fitted top portion and a lower seam at which point the skirt flares out from the body. This silhouette can be dramatic or subtle depending on the size and cut of the lower ruffle. Consider pairing it with a top that hugs the body to allow the voluminous skirt to take center stage. Layer a tailored jacket or sweater on top for a fall-appropriate look.
