THE NEW SKIRT FOR SPRING: THE DOUBLE DROP

Posted by Bethan Holt, Junior Fashion Editor at Large

Every season has its own skirt. It might be a very particular length, a new degree of fullness or a new kind of cut.

Here at FEAL, we have decided to christen this season's skirt The Double Drop. More often than not, the double drop is a tube skirt but it also has incarnations in girly prom skirt styles. The crucial thing about it is that it finishes in two places. Not like those slightly weird mullet skirts of last summer which stopped at the knee at the front and mid-calf at the back. No, the Double Drop is perfectly straight all the way round but has two layers. Generally, the underneath layer is opaque and finishes a good few inches above the top layer which is always sheer or see-through in some way. It is both a quite sexy mini skirt and a demure ladylike item, clever non?

Burberry AW13
The Double Drop seems to have started life as what we liked to call a Show Your Knickers skirt (all about the technical terms). The SYK skirts was most famously immortalised in Burberry's Resort '14 and SS14 collections in which models wore perfectly pretty lace pencil skirts which exposed their granny pants. In fact, the one SYK which appeared in the AW13 show came with heart printed pants which are still available to buy here (now half price, yay). For the total look, wear underneath a latex pencil.

The Double Drop came in many guises on the catwalks…

A high waisted and barely there voile at Balenciaga, the modernist way.

Balenciaga SS14
 Asymetric and pleated with art peeping through at Celine...
Celine SS14
Cleverly, with shirt tails as a base layer at Erdem…

Erdem SS14
And with a lovely decorative, collage-like under section at Giambattista Valli.

Giambattista Valli SS14
The high street has a brilliant selection of double drop skirts. 

This white Oasis one is pleasingly crisp…

Oasis SS14 (not available quite yet)
This pale blue by Warehouse is also a good not-too-girly version. Also very subtle should you be self conscious about knees/ lower thighs.
Warehouse skirt £50
New Look's floral embellished double drop is very dainty...

New Look £34.99 (coming soon)
 You can always trust Zara to pay "tribute". Here's their version of the Celine catwalk skirt. They've abandoned the double layer notion but stuck with the opaque meets sheer thing.

Zara 39.99
A surprisingly fashion-y interpretation from Next but in ever-practical, work appropriate black.
Next £48
 And finally, a very ethereal version from Topshop

Topshop £65
