Shop The Global African Autumn/Winter 2012 Trend: Drop Waist
The drop waist is a very much admired cut originally from the 1920s fashion where hems were high and dresses flimsy. It has been transformed through the years and transfused into all sorts of designs and fabrics. It is a rather versatile cut but not for everybody.
A wash board belly is preferable for this trend though apple shaped ladies can risk wearing it with styles like the coral skater dress included in the collage. Svelte and waif-like bodies can have a ball in the drop waist and it can be rocked just about anytime of day with the right accessories.
