Fall 2009 Paris Fashion Week Trends: Hesitant About… Drop Waist


I am not a fan of the drop waist. My hips are not a feature that I want to exaggerate. Anyone who is hourglass or pear shape probably feels the same. Tall, thin models, square shapes, and inverted triangles, on the other hand, look fabulous in a drop waist because it adds curves.

This is also a great trend for women with short waists. It’s just not a good trend for me. It’s too bad, because I’m in love with Dries Van Noten’s print (bottom right). If only the waistline was, well, at the waist.

*Behnaz Sarafpour actually showed in New York but I wanted to include since it was such an extreme.
