Mermaids flare at the knee, trumpets flare mid thigh, and fit n flares flare at the hip.

Edit : trumpets and fit n flares labels are interchangeable, however, mermaid is pretty much only at the knee.

Agree with PP (and I differentiate bw fit and flare and trumpet the way you originally said.)

Mermaids and trumpets are sexy; fit-and-flares are not

Fit n Flares are totally sexy. Just depends if you have the right body type for it. My Hayley Paige fit n flare is absolutely stunning and I cannot wait to wear it on my wedding day. 🙂
