LONDON, Jun 1, 2011/ FW/ — Summer Solstice is the first day of summer. The longest day of the year, this is the day when the sun reaches its most northern point in the sky at local noon. After this date, the days start getting shorter.
In a very eclectic summer season, designers seem to have different ideas on where the hemline should be. While Claire Waight Keller of Pringle of Scotland wants you to wear your skirts just above the knee, Peter Pilotto proposes floor length frocks. And of course there is Nicole Farhi, whose just below the knee dresses are to die for.
Claire Waight Keller, Peter Pilotto and Nicole Farhi are not alone in disagreeing where our hemlines should be this summer. In fact, in the catwalks of New York, London, Milan and Paris, designers had agreed to disagree on skirt lengths.
Like the sun’s movement in the sky that affects the length of the days, designers decided to follow the sun for Summer 2011. And this means different hemline lengths from the spring equinox to the summer solstice all the way to the autumn equinox.
What to do… what to do… Or perhaps, the question is… what do we wear?
The answer, we can have it all!!!
With K&Co skirts offerings this season, there is no reason to stay within one length of hemline. From panel skirts to split thigh high pencil skirt, crinkle maxis and denim minis, K&Co has a wide selection to choose from.
Don’t be a waity Katie. Be a princess-in-waiting with a whole new wardrobe for the summer.
