Inspired partially by the silhouettes of the 20’s, which I happen to be quite fond of, the drop waist dress is making a big splash this fall.  Not particularly flattering on all figures, it’s kind of a hard look to sell, but it does pack a punch and can make a very interesting statement, applied correctly.  The following shots capture the feeling and look of the drop waist dress, but I am in reality wearing a skirt (you can find here) and top.  For fall this look would look great with a boxy jacket added as a layering element (denim?), and with opaque tights.  But for now, let’s remember its still August, and this particular day was pushing 90 degrees.

Standing in front of this motorcycle made me feel like a rock star?
Checking around the bend for the bike’s owner.
He/she wasn’t around so I decided it would be ok to keep standing there.
Drop waist, see? see?
