Insomniac Sale Picks: Fit-and-flare Dresses with Low Necklines

*In this late-night feature – which will run on Tuesday and Thursday of each week – I’ll gather up three fun items that are currently on sale online and share them with you! I would LOVE suggestions: Stylish wide-width pumps? Classic v-necked sweaters? Chandelier earrings? Petite dress slacks? What would you like to see featured?*

Christina requested a few picks for fit-and-flare dresses with low-ish necklines – ideally formal enough for a wedding guest – so here we go:


Ivy & Blue Ruched Matte Jersey Dress – was $118, now $70.80

That’s a pretty high waistline, I’ll admit, but it’s also pretty wide so it’s unlikely to balloon out in a maternity-esque fashion. With a nice, deep v-neckline this dress will be lovely with pendants and v-shaped bib necklaces. Pair with a jacket, cardigan, or wrap for cool temps. Available in this cobalt, as well as navy, pink, black, or washed red in sizes 2 – 16. Size availability varies by color. This dress has a similar shape with a textured skirt and comes in sizes 12 – 32.

AGB Belted Dress – was $70, now $47.59
with code FAVES

A great, simple shape with a pretty scoop neckline. If you don’t dig the belt, remove it and swap in another or skip it altogether. (Those little thread belt loops can be clipped right off.) A solid, sleek dress like this is perfect for fall layering, so add the sweater or jacket of your choice. Available in red or black in sizes 4 – 18, sold out in size 6. Size availability varies by color. This red dress has sleeves but a similar shape and is available in sizes 14 – 32.


Ivy & Blu Ruched Dress – was $108, now $64.80

Yep, this brand wins the prize for best versatile, low-necked fit-and-flare dresses. This one features a slightly deeper v and a slightly longer hemline than its friend above, as well as sleeveless construction. Available in black and indigo in sizes 2 – 16, sold out in size 12. Size availability varies by color. Again, sleeves on this one but otherwise similar and in sizes 12 – 32.

maroon flare dress

Lauren Ralph Lauren V-Neck Flare Dress$89.50

Not on sale, but not outrageously priced and one of the only sleeved options I came across! Love the twist-front detail at the bust line. This dress has a lovely flare but no defined waistline, which is great for some figures … does have Designated Boob Room, but in a stretchy material so hopefully not too limiting. Available in sizes 0 – 18, and also in 14W – 24W in this maroon and also cobalt.

Other not-currently-on-sale resources for fit-and-flare dresses with low-ish necklines:

  1. J.Crew Weddings – Spendy but gorgeous. This silk chiffon dress with a sweetheart neckline comes in 15 colors.
  2. eShakti – Mind your fabrics as many are the right shape but made from poplin or cotton knit. Stick to the polyesters and rayons instead.
  3. Nordstrom – Always worth checking for anything wedding-related. This purple lace dress is stunning.

    Lands End also has a bunch of these style dresses (called “cotton modal fit-and-flare”) on sale right now, and I am in love with them (I have 3; 2 patterned and 1 solid color). They are in regular, petite, and full sizes! There are a couple of sleeve options as well (sleeveless or elbow-length, currently). These wash and dry just fine and don’t wrinkle very easily, either.
