Omiru Poll Results: Bubble Skirts are Out!

Omiru Poll Result: Bubble Skirts are Out

Bubble SkirtWe asked: Are Bubble Skirts In or Out?

You said: They’re Out.  A full 50% think they’re out, with another 22% believing they’re on the way out.  Only 28% are still all over this trend.

Omiru’s take: On the racks, this skirt silhouette is adorable.  However, once we put the skirt on, our love affair started to fade.  Figure flattery, once again, was the issue here.  Problem 1: the pouf–which adds visual weight to the derrière and upper leg.  Problem 2: the length–which tended to run a bit too long to be attractive on any but the longest legs.

Next Question: Tell us, what do you
think about 3/4 Length Jackets?  Are they In, or are they Out?  Cast your vote on
