I truly appreciate a great fit and flare dress. With my body shape, which leans towards pear-like, I sometimes find it hard to find dresses that can handle all of this (snaps twice). I used to lean to away from fit and flare dresses because I was under this weird assumption that fit and flare dresses would only make me look bottom heavy. But then I decided to try one on and, to my surprise, it was extremely flattering! Fit and flare dresses work to accentuate the waist, often times helping to actually create a waist (which is why it work great for my body shape), while working to create a great A-line shape at the bottom. I haven't seen anyone who couldn't pull off a fit and flare dress - it is quite literally the universal dress. In addition, they are very versatile, allowing you to style them however you like, including adding a button up blows underneath it or a skinny belt with stockings for a more fall appropriate look.
