I've been thinking about things I want to make for the remainder of this winter and about new things to do here, on my blog. However, I don't feel like discussing half-developed plans right now.
Right now, I'd like to take you on a bit of a detour.
In the magazine that comes with my newspaper on Saturday (Volkskrant magazine nr. 676, 25 January 2014), there's always a little corner with a report on a street style trend, and this one stood out to me:
Longer, wider skirts. Apparently these ladies were visitors to fashion shows in Paris a couple of months ago, so they are not your common girls in the street. Still, I kind of like it when a personal fashion interest of mine intersects with a mainstream or high fashion trend.
I love the boldly striped skirt and the colour combo in the second picture. Oh, and I want to go off and make a denim half circle skirt RIGHT NOW.
What is funny to me is that the text makes a reference to Dior's New Look. That is right when you only look at the lengthening skirts but not when you look at the complete silhouette. These ladies largely stick to the usual rather straight mainstream fashion silhouette. If I wear a long-ish wide skirt, I make and style it to show off hip-to-waist ratio, like women used to do.
Of course, it is nice to see different options.
Do you like big skirts? And what do you think of this modern styling of them?
