Ladies, pay attention! For this year’s fall the hemlines have dropped a few inches again. This means dresses and (pencil) skirts will have to be worn slightly below the knee. We go back to the conservative forties.

But don’t get scared you can still keep it sexy by opting for high slits or sheer blouses and tops. A modern twist can also come from unexpected color combinations (like we saw at Jonathan Saunders) or the choice of materials (Louis Vuitton). And especially if you style your look in the way Frida Gianinni styled her models (gloves, hats, small belt, glasses) you can do no wrong.

It’s the forties, but then sexier!
