Silhouette

Definition: Silhouette

Silhouette

n. In fashion, the overall outline, or shape of a garment. Three basic silhouettes form the basis for all clothing and are considered long-run fashions. These cycle over a period of years; the bell, with outer form rounded to waistline; the straight, hangs from the shoulders; and the bustle back silhouette. A-line and V-shape are modifications of the straight silhouette.

Pictured: Bubble silhouette.

I like the skirt - those pleated slightly puffy skirts make me look wide on the bottom... definately not for anyone with hips.

Love the way the pleats are falling, and the design in the fabric is also working for me.
