Style On Trial: Open cage skirt by Boutique at Topshop

Topshop-cage-skirt

Cage skirts have been hugely popular across the fashion blogosphere over the last couple of years, and in the "real world" too, if this £45 cage skirt by Topshop Boutique is anything to go by: it sold out within a couple of days, so presumably there are lots of people currently walking around wearing one of these.

What we want to know is, are you one of them?

This skirt is, of course, much less alarming than it may look at first glance, because it's supposed to be worn over something else (leggings, other skirts, etc) rather than by itself, although we wouldn't be AT ALL surprised to see some people try and wear it on its own. Yes, Lady Gaga, we're looking at you.

What say you, readers: will you be working the cage skirt this season, or do you think it should be locked in a cage instead?

    Cage skirts should be kept in the 19th century.

    Has Topshop been raiding Susie Bubble’s wardrobe?

    Ummmm… Why?
    Truly, I’m serious. Why should I spend $100 on something that requires another article of clothing to wear under it? Why not spend the $$$ on a cute skirt that works all on it’s very own?
    I’m all for fashion, but I can’t help but see myself spending too much time adjusting the partial skirt to fit over the real skirt & not enough time enjoying the look. Also, no way am I comfortable enough to wear that all on it’s ownsome. Ms Gaga, please feel free to work this item however you wish — it’s all you girl.

    I wouldn’t give as much money for that either, and if I did I’d get looots of stares but… I’ve seen this thing worn beautifully on kingdomofstyle.typepad.co.uk and I like it a lot, wish I had the guts to copy it 🙂

    It’s a 2 second fad. Skip it.

    In theory I think it is amazing. But it’s more of an exhibition piece. Something if even did wear, you’d wear it because of it being it, and possibly for an even or photo shoot. Not for normal people. At all.
