Part 2 of our SS2011 RTW Trendings report (perhaps) favours the tall and lanky and the wannabes. Yeah, so we ladies gotz ’em curves, but on I-feel-fat days, “flaunting it” just ain’t a consideration.

Trend #2 – Column


ADAM does a beautiful interpretation of this. Can I just say, I.LOVE.THIS.LOOK. The metallic (somewhat) bloaty sleeveless blouse tucked neatly into wide-leg make-your-legs-look-longer pants <3!


I hope to see more wide-leg pant options on a rack near you (soon)!

A Detacher

Not wanting to be too literal with this trend, I’ve picked out a few belted options that don’t cinch your waist till you find yourself out of breath (on behalf of the model or otherwise!)

A Detacher’s belted loose-fit, long-sleeved jumpsuit oozes effortlessness and maximum comfort paired very nicely with sandals. The rolled up sleeves are simply darling (:! Especially since it’s the only sleeved option I put in this group.


This pleated, pseudo-sheer belted number from Chloe conjures imagery of Grecian goddesses, angels and other symbols of beauty, elegance and grace. The softness of the fabric, the way it falls and (the way I imagine it) wisps as the model walks makes me smile.

AF Vandervorst

AF Vandervorst earns a spot here because of how the sandals and slit leggings+pant=peggings kinda merge into each other, making the wearer (in this case, an already glamazionian-esquely tall model) look longer.

3.1 Phillip Lim

And lastly, 3.1 Phillip Lim. The mash-up of sequins on the tank and shimmery polka-dots for the pant pulls the look together in it’s own quirky way. It’s a different approach to achieve this illusion of length while using vastly different coloured separates and retaining commonalities in the fabrics/prints/patterns.

I would not have thought of that. But I’m glad someone else did.
