As a rule I don’t wear dresses, skirts (long/ short/midi) unless it’s a rare occasion. This is possibly because 1) I have thin idiotic looking legs (chicken most likely) 2) My school uniform which I wore with absolute hate for a decade . 3) I am a bit clumsy and have this mortal fear of the wind flaring up my skirt and having to frantically cling on to it in order to save my modesty ( this happened twice after which I stopped wearing flared skirts) but if there is one person on earth who inspires me to wear one then its Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge a.k.a Kate Middleton.
I don’t know whether its her wonderfully athletic, ridiculously toned body or her confidence that makes the knee length, rather plain, A line shifts look absolutely ravishing.
I know that we are in this era where we celebrate liberation in all forms of dress and wearing nipple pasties and a thong seems an acceptable dress code for most award ceremonies and even black tie events but somewhere deep inside me I do admire this rather demure, old school style of modest dressing. Maybe that makes me a prude or some backward hack but I still like people who dress in a classy way and the Duchess is certainly a class apart.
