New Proportions

SILK SHIRT £165
MIRACLE FLARED SKIRT £99

 

I promise no one is going to try to stop you wearing trousers or chic knee length dresses but the early adopters are already in their longer length skirts and culottes. So, its time to give this new proportion a go. A flared, full and A line cut works wonders for suggesting a wasp waist. The combination of a tucked in sweater or shirt looks just right.

I am usually not that keen on retro but I have just seen the 70s film Klute with the delicious Jane Fonda wearing the greatest mid calf skirts and skinny rib tops and this made me pine for a long skirt.

I suggest wearing them with flat boots now and later with flat pumps or high heels. Winser London has a soft wide pair of culottes arriving in March and a cotton poplin longer length full skirt.
