Dhoti skirt: for the illusion of a dropped crotch

Dhoti-skirt

You know what we love about skirts? We love the fact that you always know where you are with a skirt. The fact that, no matter how ugly a skirt is, at least it can never be as bad as a pair of harem pants. Or, indeed, have a dropped…. oh. Sorry, our mistake…

Dhotti skirt, $575, Shopbop.

    It would look nice with a long skirt under it. Perhaps if it was part of a gown.
    The shoes are on their own, though.

    Not sure about dhoti skirt – the top bit reminds me more of what Jesus wore on the cross.

    I think it looks like the kilt Ancient Egyptian men wore, except black. Either that, or some woman from the 18th-century French court forgot to put the panniers under her skirt.

    This is not a demure skirt – one would want to keep one’s knees tightly together whilst sitting methinks!

    I just can’t like the skirt.
    And I can’t understand why they would have it modeled with boots that completely upstage it.
