Summer dresses are not only a staple in our closets, allowing seamless transitions from our offices to date night, but we’ve found that some of our favorite celebrities have sporting some exciting new styles this season. We’ve spotted a silhouette that is scoring some serious face time from bloggers to silver screen regulars: the ultra-feminine, fit-and-flare silhouette.
