On the one hand, it’s nice to see a style that’s not wildly clingy or ass-baringly short, but how easy is it to pull of the inescapable (well, only if you crack open a fashion magazine or frequent certain neighborhoods—I’m not seeing it widely adopted during my daily commute) maxi skirt trend without looking like a total sister-wife frumpkin?
I can’t wear things tucked-in (I don’t mean physically incapable, just that it would invite “boy or girl?” invasions of privacy) so how will this ever work without looking drapey gypsy-hippie? And most of it is hideous. I can kind of deal with this, if I had to, but this is ‘90s scrunchie and painful.
Two things I will never understand: how plus-sized models are large but do not have guts and why clothing brands clearly intended for older, rotund women use models who are way too young and slim for the styles?
Speaking of maxis, have you entered Kotex's Ban the Bland contest yet? I call my creation argyle sasquatch.
