Sidesplitting Pleats

Here’s something not many people know about me, I’m not on the long pleated skirt team. At The Model Edit, if there are pleats to be considered, they have to answer more than one question i.e. do more than just be.They absolutely must induce me to near ecstasy, promise not to be a uniform and unusually for our pleated mates, be a little sexy. Bored of being trammelled by 10,000,00 non variations on the same theme, but definitely happy to take advice from Miuccia Prada on any level I remembered some of her suggestions on pleats and the wearing of.

What I’m getting around to, and the reason for my delving even slightly deeper into the plethora of pleated skirts was that whilst waltzing and wafting through the style maze that is a Zara Store, I saw a wifty, wafty, ‘kick you in the crotch, spit on your neck, fantastic’ pleated skirt. Bloody marvellous and totally unexpectedly,  I point you towards nirvana in a pleated skirt, my way.

Mrs V shouts ‘yippee’ as this skirt is restaurant and beach worthy. It ticks my boxes, and not me off. It comprises pleats, splits, transparence ( come back, stop screaming, its not ‘see through’! There’s a difference) and insouciance due to its lack of zips and buttons. Yes, we wiggle into it, think sweatpants arrangement without drawstring. Loving it, and don’t worry it doesn’t sit on the waist it sort of hangs out on the hips. Best pleated skirt ever.

Now that I’ve found my hussy heart’s delight which is obviously side splits, another piece of why wouldn’t you? clothing, spotted me.

H&M spring fashion trends

 Again, this flimsy running through the meadows, pass the scones, type dress doesn’t normally ignite my credit card. Maybe I’m mellowing because, as with my leniency towards pleated skirts, I feel that this dress could be appearing in the unfolding drama comedy of my life. Side splits are very alluring and they surely and subliminally lured me inside these trending pieces. H&M are floating, literally a few Spring suggestions and there are other variations of this dress. Click on the link and wander around their very pretty video that unfolds its ideas whilst taking you on a walk.

The moral here Ms’s, Mrs’s and Miss’s, is that that Mrs V especially, should never say never.I’m ever so grateful that you carried on reading and helped my clothing catharsis.

Mrs V observed London Fashion Week (ringside) and via assiduous research has tabulated the rest of the best Spring Summer 2017 Collections. The thematic  coordination of  style by designers who probably wouldn’t recognise each other stretching simultaneously for the last  Crayfish/Rocket ( super trendy sea/fish themes this season, clever old Pret! ) sandwich on the shelf, yet share pretty much the same vision for our raiments each season always makes me stop and wonder how? As always The Model Edit’s focus is on what you can access, what you can buy to look pretty, sexy, successful or just comfortable in, and what you may already have lingering in your wardrobes that can underpin the looks streamlining the catwalk and the pages of Vogue. In a Manolo shoebox, here is my recipe for supreme summer loveliness via a pic’n mix of fashion houses. Firstly it was glaringly obvious that the Sea and it’s fruits are a massive theme.  Dolce and Gabbana  somehow make us look sexy in Sea Bass, whereas Alice Archer’s exquisitely executed capsule collection froths with it’s embroidered fronds, foam and coral embellishments, as though Daisy Buchanan swam to Gatsby’s parties and emerged as haute couture sea goddess. Get in the swim. This delicate theme leads to me to the next standout trend…

Trends, Not Necessarily Spends.

Buff up the shoulders right now as they absolutely have it this year, Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. This is really good news, because, and please tell me that none of us have shoulder issues, we can all be on the same page . We can pay and display, tiny glimpses, or the full on armpit to armpit, off the shoulder look. Ok, it might possibly be reasonably said that we may give some viewers the cold shoulder, but not before we’ve given them a clear shot of a very sexy, feminine piece of our bodies, without it being x rated. We can go pretty or we can go raunchy. There are no holes barred on our shirts, T’s, blouses, dresses, the lot. We are naked…in patches.
