^ I see what you mean, soft...
They do look like ruffled culottes...
which sounds even cooler to me, actually...
It's just so perfect looking, rly...

totally not what i was picturing AT ALL....:p

coming from luella bartley and being perpetuated by topshop...
reminds me of the 'tea dress' craze that was happening for a moment there..
*maybe it still is, i don't know...


i agree with you quimby...
it's a very young look...especially in a ditzy floral print...
:p...

i'd still like to see more versions of it though.....
Doh hehe


I definitely think it's the same teadress thing. It's interesting to see how much sway Topshop has now , high street stores have started copying topshop versions of copies , it's ridiculous ! I remember one store (I won't name) that did their own version of one of the original Kate Moss dresses from her first collection. Magazines like Grazia and Look especially help these new trends along.

These are the skirts that I've heard being referred to as "ra-ra" skirts...very cute, but not for everyone. They don't flatter pear shapes IMO (like me hehe)

i like the luella one in #16, and Yigal AzrouŽl in #14. can't imagine the others would be very flattering, though?

i've seen more tops and dresses like this with tiers of ruffles...

i think the skirt must be more of a UK thing?...
i think Luella is bigger over there in her hometown...

i have seen some cute little skirts at H&M over here...
but they are just little full mini's..no ruffles or tiers..

i guess forever 21 is the source for it here..
which means that i guess everyone here who gets one will have the SAME one...

:p

there's a lot of ruffled skirts here too, so it could be a european thing

although there are a lot of ruffles on everything, tops, dresses, skirts etc

probably...
well...ruffles are definitely a trend for spring...just in general.,..

but this tiered thing is another thing...even though it's related..
it's almost bigger than the ruffle trend i think...

Definitely in!
I've seen a lot of them in-stores already. Many in that vintage inspired look in floral chiffons and lightweight fabrics...

I think it's cute personally. Very feminine and youthful..

tiered is muuuch bigger right now imo
it's everywhere, I haven't seen a single store not carry something tiered right now

but they do relate even though they're different, but I prefer the tiered trend to the ruffle
