Well, well… looks like the Empress has been doing some shopping!
This is by Miu Miu, it’s £2,295, and if you’re thinking it’s probably somehow less revealling ON than it looks in the photo, well, you’d be wrong:
Seriously. Someone needs to explain this to us. (Preferably in a patronising way: we like that…*) We GUESS we could POSSIBLY see it as some kind of fancy swimwear, but … who pays £2,295 for swimwear? And this model is wearing shoes: we don’t think she’s going swimming, somehow.
There’s also the option that you’re supposed to wear a slip of some kind underneath it, with the “skirt” becoming a kind of embellished over-layer for your regular clothes. That would make much more sense than the way Net-a-Porter have styled it, and it would also make more sense than the way it came down the runway:
Wear your transparent mini skirt with a chunky cardigan and lurex bra!
Still, we all know runway fashion isn’t “real life”m and neither is the styling you see on retail websites, so when Net-a-Porter include the metallic blue briefs (a snip at £175) in their “how to wear it” section, we’re sure they don’t mean LITERALLY. Er, do they? How WOULD you style this skirt? Where would you wear it? Mini skirts, as we’re sure you know, are being touted as a big trend for this winter: we’re assuming (or hoping, rather) that most of them WON’T be £2K and completely see-through, but perhaps it’s better that we be prepared…
P.S. If you’d like to see some GOOD fashion along with the bad, don’t forget to check out our sister site, ShoeperWoman.com, the home of shoes, style, shopping, and a capsule wardrobe collection for (almost) every occassion…
