Shape-ism

30 Aug

There’s a new silhouette in town. Remember in the 90s when pant rises skimmed dangerously low, barely covering the essentials, as shirts remained at their usual length, baring a less than appropriate amount of midriff? We recovered in the last decade by pushing the waistline way up high to the thinnest part of your body. But recently the waistlines are dropping again (however let’s remember – NO MORE MIDRIFFS), much like they were in the flapper days of the 20s, bringing about a new and intriguing feminine silhouette. This look from Valentino is a mild example.

What this means for us: Don’t be afraid to experiment with different waistlines. When the line is lower in a dress, however, the fit should be looser. It’s a comfortable and flattering look for most women.
