I’ve shied away from this silhouette thinking I am too short, but I’m reconsidering. Both Givenchy and Dries van Noten showed this look for FW13.

  • Love this look- Dries Van Noten A/W 13 captured it perfectly. Its slightly edgy, very ladylike and fresh all at the same time.

    I think this may be a way of adapting some existing skirts we all have and no longer love, combining them with cigarette pants and brogues- giving them a new lease of life!!!!!

  • Sorry-always looks to me like piling on everything in your wardrobe and trying toooo hard. And if anything one needs a ton of height and be really young and look like a model and want to make a big statement. I want to go there but just can’t. Especially with a wide pant…Run Preston run!

  • This is a look that I associated with a certain style of dresser. In other words, not a trendy thing, but a style that some people carry off whenever and it works. It seems too studied a look otherwise, and just more clothing than needed! Too big a gamble for me.

  • LOVE the shoes! The outfit to me is like being a slave to fashion, but the shoes are wonderful!

  • I like it, though I do find it rather costume-y. It makes me think of historical Asian styles, like kimono and qingpao and Korean hanbuk. But it can also read a bit Star Trek.
