As we see the return of separates in the fashion world this trend merges with the architectural vibe to create the tulip skirt. Pencil skirts are a wardrobe essential but tulip skirts make the look a bit edgier and are often more flattering. They feature exaggerated detail on the hips which hides a multitude of sins! The only downside is that they can be quite tight around the knees and calves leading to you walking in a strange manner! They appeared on the catwalk most notably at Lanvin but also at Paul Smith and Roland Mouret. Try Miss Selfridge or Warehouse on the High Street.
