Style On Trial: Malloni’s shirt with “boob window”

Awesome! A shirt with a window in it to let the girls peek out! What could be better than that? Before you’re tempted to answer, “Er, a shirt WITHOUT a window?”, hear us out: this Malloni creation is actually much less offensive than some of the clothes with windows we’ve shown you recently, not least because it’s so clearly designed to be worn over the top of something. It could also make an interesting way to show off a pretty top but still keep your arms covered, if you so desired. On the other hand, it does look a bit like an item of clothing that’s had something bad happen to it: something perhaps¬†¬†involving a sharp pair of scissors, or…

Mesh front sweater from Topshop: a window on your breasts!

Oh look, it’s a window for your boobs! Never again will they be forced to hide themselves away behind pesky fabric, and miss out on what’s happening in the world, for they will both see and be seen from behind the mesh panel of this Topshop sweater! Awesome! OK, let’s be sensible for a minute: obviously this sweater isn’t actually supposed to be worn with nothing underneath (or, we would hope, with just your regular underwear underneath, either), so what do you think of it? Is it actually quite an interesting idea, allowing you to combine the practicality of a sweater with something a little more exciting underneath? Is it the ideal solution to those days when it’s too cold…

The ‘Skirts With Windows’ movement reaches its natural conclusion with Topshop’s mesh seam skirt

This is what happens when you allow the skirts with windows we showed you last week to exist unchecked. First there was Boutique’s maxi skirt, with a “window” from the knee down. It was ugly, but not indecent. We decided to let it live. Then there was Karl Lagerfeld’s mini skirt with window on the thighs. It, too, was ugly, and it also started to ring the alarm bells, because once you’ve allowed something like that to exist, you’ve just paved the way for … Topshop’s mesh seam skirt! Which is basically just all window, not so much skirt, isn’t it? Topshop obviously looked at the other two examples, thought, “We can do better than that!”, and this is what…

Sweater with boob windows. Nice.

This sweater wouldn’t ordinarily have attracted the attention of The Fashion Police, because as far as fashion offences go this is only a minor infraction. The thing is, though, the Chief of Police is short. Every sweater she ever buys, therefore, sits much lower than it’s supposed to, and she knows a lot of other women who are in the same unfortunate position. All we’re saying is that we’d really hate to see this sweater on one of those women. Especially if they’d decided to go bra-less underneath it…
