Defining femininity and with shifting importance throughout the centuries the waist has always been and a key player in fashion trends. The recent return to feminine silhouettes has seen an increase in attention to the waist. Belted dresses and waist clinching bubble skirts have become the norm.
But how do you keep the waisted look fresh and modern without looking like a 40’s housewife?
A recent editorial in Vogue Australia gets the look just right with a series pretty images, which according to Fashionation ‘pay homage to the Lady who lunches with a regal couture edge’. It seems the trick to getting this look right is to simply add ‘accessories that contrasts in both texture and colour’. Embellishment, texture and ‘establishment jewels’ are also imperative to keeping this look fresh.
