A changing of the hems

With spring / summer 2011 attempting to make its presence felt across many a country we’re seeing the sheer maxi dress trend evolve exactly as we had suspected it would: to be shorter.

To date though, we’d simply lacked the visual confirmation that the hemline of the sheer maxi dress trend would change in response to the weather. But, thanks to the talented eye of street style photographer Wayne Tippets, that’s no longer the case as you can see above.

Best of all, the jagged hem seems to imply that this is something of a DIY knee length sheer skirt – it’s something of a thrill to me to see trends adapted on the streets before retailers and designers have a chance to do it themselves, it shows that fashion is now a bottom up art instead of one dictated from the top down.

He was 5 when his teacher wrote on his report card “Daniel can’t sit still.” Taking it as a compliment, he’s been on the go ever since. Having flown over 590,000 kilometres in a single year (2012), he’s done much to push the boundaries of a fashioniser, always looking to fold one extra Tom Ford suit into his set of Samsonite cases and for one extra occasion to tie a tie for. As much an editor-at-large as he is Fashionising.com’s Editor-in-chief, when he's not travelling to all the fashion weeks his passports will allow him to, Daniel works on guiding this publication’s editorial and trend views. He is one of Fashionising.com’s co-founders.
