You wouldn’t believe there could be so much excitement about a new proportion and a longer length skirt. Designers have been pushing a new silhouette for several seasons and now it has come to pass.
First there were nostalgic shapes from Marc Jacobs for Louis Vuitton some seasons ago when he channelled the styles worn by Princess Grace of Monaco. These have now morphed into modern wearable fit and flare day to evening dresses and skirts in jersey and crepe. This is the most divinely feminine form for all girls with a hint of a waist. It also disguises a slightly heavy thigh. Well, it is important to be honest about our best and worst bits.
The gently fuller skirt has a lovely 'swish' and can be worn with trendy flats or sporty plimsolls, as well as the ubiquitous kitten heel. Team with a flattering cropped cardigan, if required. This bold dress shape looks so new and sexy.
Under accessorise this look; nothing is less cool than trying too hard. Add perhaps a plain belt, a neat clutch bag and gold hoop earrings. Simple and modern is the way to go.
