From week one of the XFactor LIVE shows style icon, Cheryl Cole, proved to us all that this years XFactor would be all about runway style.
In the first of the live shows Cheryl wore an Altier Versace caged skirt dress – Your perfect party frock this season!
Cheryl can pull of near enough all lengths and widths of skirt, I was perplexed at how she would sit through the show in the dress mind – but hey ho, she managed a-ok!
The caged skirt look is a style that goes waaaaaaaaaay back to around the Victorian times when a crinoline (caged type structure) was added under a skirt to give volume and a very definite shape. This style was thought of as upper class and very feminine. The caged skirt is back in fashion, this time worn over the skirt so you are able to see the structure itself – clever ;o
I’ve had a scout about and found ASOS were the current stockist to go to for this seasons shape.
