This fall is all about accentuating your waist, it’s the trend to emulate this fall – the hour-glass figure of the ’40’s and ’50’s. Think Bridget Bardot (20″ waist) and Elizabeth Taylor (21″), who both managed to have the tiniest of waists while still looking wonderfully feminine and soft, not at all sickly skinny.
Helping to define this trend are peplums, panniers and skirts that add a little padding to the hips (remember Kate Middleton’s Alexander McQueen wedding dress) which designers across the board have taken to with an affinity.
No matter what you fancy, be it tops, dresses or skirts (how fun is the Acne pencil skirt with the shearling peplum), there is a look out there this fall that gives you that nipped in waist vibe. Can you say VA VA VOOM!!
