Fashion for Fembots: Sonia Rykiel’s pink marabou-trim sheer mini

Ok, enough already with the underwear as outerwear trend. The Fashion Police have had their fill, and are afraid they’ll be forced to lay down a few basic ground rules for the sake of common decency. Such as: no more sheer. If we can see through it, it’s not suitable for public consumption. If it has a marabou trim, it’s unlikely to be suitable for the streets (excepting on those rare occasions when “street” meets “walking” and money exchanges hands…) And if it resembles nightwear even the teeniest bit, let’s be sensible and keep it in the bedroom, folks!

Unless you actually want to resemble an Austen Powers fembot… in which case, fire away!

(All puns 100% intended!)

Crimes of Fashion, Skirts

Mark Fast’s knitted mini skirt helps us answer the question ‘How short is too short?’

Way back in 2008, we asked the question “How short is too short?” in relation to skirts. We got a variety of different answers to that, but personally we’d draw the line right at the point where the skirt in question could easily be mistaken for some kind of frilly halter-neck bra top.

Or at the point where it’s suspended from your waist by a braided belt:

What about you, readers? Would you wear this? If so, it’s £1,080 at Browns.

Golden Globes after party: Ashley Tisdale in a fringed mini skirt

Ashley Tisdale in a fringed mini skirt Golden Globes after partyFrom the waist up, it’s kinda like what your mother would wear to the Golden Globes. From the waist down, it’s… not. We can see what Ashley Tisdale was probably doing here: following a basic “if you’re going to wear a fringed mini skirt and leopard print shoes, wear something totally non-revealing on top.” It’s generally a sound rule to live by, but we feel a bit like her torso looks like it belongs on someone else here. What do you think?
