Hats off to the pouf

The smock/bubble/tent/child dress (whatever you want to call it) can be seen everywhere as captured by my favourite street style documentarist. A forgiving cut, the benefits of such are obvious (ie eating like a glutton) -though a pair of svelte stems can really help. Volume is certainly a more welcome trend than excess skin, but it’s as difficult a look to pull off. Worn in this manner, volume is overwhelming to my frame and it’s a little frightening how freakishly childlike and weird I look in dresses like these. Damn those extra pleats and gathers. Very cute, but not altogether alluring…
