Christian Dior's New Look, 1947. As a reaction to the rationing of World War II the new look, using many metres of fabric, came into fashion. It was a return to the classic feminine shape, emphasising the bust and hips, with a tiny waist. I love how glamorous this looks with the tiny jacket and voluminous skirt.
The popular ballet-style gets a modern update with this tulle mini skirt, in a taupe colourway with grosgrain waistband. Mix it up with a distressed band-tee for look that’s both ways grungy and girlie. #Topshop
