Modern Classics – A-line dresses.
In the middle of the 1950’s a line of skirts was invented by Christian Dior, which he called A-line “A” because the skirts were cut in the shape of the letter A – tight on top and evenly broadening downwards, in the shape of a bell. This skirt style became a huge success and the term “A-line” has entered everyday language, also when it comes to dresses and coats
. Even particular features of fashion, like a peplum or flounces, can be in A-line. The dress with an A-line is a modern classic and most probably a part of every woman’s wardrobe. That’s because the A-line dress is a true all-rounder – suitable both for business and the office, as well as for fine dining or on a date.
The wonder of Retro: A-line dresses.
Dresses that are slender around the shoulders and get wider in trapezium shape on their way down were all the rage in the 1960’s. Hence, dresses with A-line are also always a memento of fashion from the past when sleeveless A-line dresses were combined with high boots, as to be seen in the famous Austin Powers movies. Retro dresses
in A-cut are a perfect fit for any kind of figure –, no matter if you wear size 10
or if you are looking for A-line dresses in size 18
. There’s only this one thing you should remember: As a matter of fact, A-line dresses have to fall in an A-shaped line, otherwise they lose their very own flair. Accordingly, ladies with broader hips should make sure that the dress is wide enough, so there’s a remaining space of about one or two centimetres on each side. This way, you keep the A-line dress from scaling around the hips and unnecessarily making you look bigger.
