The ‘Francette‘ skirt from Fifi Chachnil‘s superb ready-to-wear collection is one of my favourite designs for adding a touch of retro glamour to a wardrobe. This structured, high-waisted piece is designed in pencil style. It sits perfectly on the hips and cinches in the waist for a super flattering, feminine shape. Between the waist section and the top of the skirt that sits underneath the bust, there is some boning to give a little extra support and that bodice-like ‘held’ and secure feeling. The two little bows around the waistline show designer Fifi Chachnil’s touch – in a previous interview on the site she talked about wanting to create an essence of pure femininity in her beautiful lingerie and pret-a-porter… you can’t help but smile and feel good when wearing her designs! This outfit makes me want to take a holiday back in Paris; dance on the cobbled streets and dine al fresco in the sun…. Who wants to wander the regal gardens of The Louvre with me?
