Short cuts and retro rock are making a comeback in 2014.
Designers paired micro-minis with low-heeled boots for a feminine yet seriously sophisticated set of ensembles that flatter a myriad of body types. Runway references to the days of Beatlemania and Twiggy triumph included the rock n’ roll silhouettes at St. Laurent, embroidered bibs of Gucci, and ultra low waistlines at D-Squared.
Let’s be honest: no decade comes back into vogue as frequently or with such enthusiasm as the swinging 60’s. We can’t quite quit those wild days of innovation in fashion, music, and culture. And why should we? It’s just too good to abandon for more than a couple Seasons.
An A-line or super square cut is vital the modern mod mini: loose enough to leave some room for imagination, structured enough to be daytime appropriate, and short enough to show off those long, tan Cali girl stems.
