Style Trial: Peter Pilotto full-skirted dresses

Peter Pilotto dress

We love big-skirted dresses, really, we do. But this one… kinda looks like a farthingale. And would possibly require two seats on the train.

From the side, meanwhile…

wide skirted dress… you’d possibly have to get used to fielding questions about your due date, and whether you know if you’re having a boy or a girl. Oh, and yes, your hips DO look big in it.

Despite all of that, however, we’re just not sure it’s much of a crime. What do you think?

Innocent or guilty?

    Guilty but not on a felony level.

    Guilty of trying to bring back the bustle. Not an attractive look.

    Are we sure she’s not just trying to smuggle hula hoops into the country?

    Guilty. I want to see what the undercarriage of this dress looks like, because that looks rather like it’s got a wheel farthingale under it, which went out with Elizabeth Tudor.
