A conversation with an admirable publication earlier this week re-sparked the age old, and when I say age old what I mean is eight month old question: skirts over pants are happening, but are they really happening? Existential, an important conversation at very least, and we should get to the bottom of it. ThE bOtToM. Above you’ll find a photo Naomi took a few months ago. It was for a styling denim story based on the premise that real style is measured by what we can do with jeans and a t-shirt, but it never went live. Primarily because I think we can certainly to better than this, cha ching! I remember while putting this look together thinking I had been so keen on throwing skirts over everything for Man Repeller but when push came to shove had only actually gone to the public wearing the makeshift peplum of sorts some three or four times. I for one appreciate the prospect of hidden thighs or at the very least the elimination of shape where my stems are thickest and accentuation of their skinniest post. And while I know my legs are certainly not fat, there’s something to be said about the relationship most women have with their gams. And that is: weird, a love hate. Love because they get you places, hate because in matters of the ubiquitous leather leg, we will never equal Kate Moss. What do you think though, does this trend have staying power or does it all too clearly scream victim? Go.
