English Style Trumpet Skirt
Much favored since the 1920's in the upper reaches of English society.
Yours to wear without having to endure those tedious state dinners and prying photographers, although you must expect a certain amount of favorable attention.
A few steps across the Aubusson set the sweeping, tea-length hem into intriguing motion… womanly, self-assured. The opposite, really, of a girlish (and possibly petulant) flounce.
The thing is as basic as a Bentley. Goes with all sorts of blouses, sweaters, jackets, scarves. And don't just think in terms of wearing pumps. You'll reach your full potential when you put on riding boots.
English-Style Trumpet Skirt (No. 1030). Wool tricotine twill lined in taffeta. Good September through May (most of the hunt season). With eight gores, nicely fitted (but not too tight) at hips.
