HISTORY OF SKIRT LENGTHS

HISTORY OF SKIRT LENGTHS

“How’s your hemline hangin’, baby? “ said no one ever, until we did in this here blog post. When it comes to skirt length, or hemline, a familiar term which didn’t even come to be until the 1930s, fashion over the years has dictated a real hemline journey both up and down, albeit primarily since the twentieth century. Up until then, all True Fashionistadresses and skirts were primarily ankle-length.
FOCUS ON CLASSICS

FOCUS ON CLASSICS

Trends come and go, but classics stay forever. You’ve heard it, you know it, you live it. However, just in case you’ve been questioning your collection and what remains on the floor post-purge for eventual designer consignment (shameless self-promotion moment, and proud of it), we’ll help with a refresher on some True Fashionista must-haves that have only grown finer with time.
