pre-fall 2010 trends: pt II

how appropriate; i just finished writing a history of costume essay and now i'm making a post about toga-inspired dress.

draping is an easy way to add interest to a solid coloured garment without having to add any sort of graphic detail or ornamentation and without being overly distracting. it adds a feminine touch to a basic garment and can hide or accentuate parts of the body. designers are all over this trend for fall!

so, when you're out looking for a new LBD for the fall (jonathan, that one's for you), i suggest looking for a dress with draping detailing. or just throw a toga party. not.
