Damn, is it April already? Time to get cracking on a new wardrobe to suit the warmer days ahead, and what better way to get started than with some ruffles and pastels? Vietnamese-born, US-based Thuy Diep and her label Thuy (pronounced “Twee”) brings a sense of seasonal optimism with a range of skirts to suit all styles.
The flirty Peplum skirts come in two colours – an amethyst stretch satin and a lily green textured organza – and pairs two current trends, the high waist and ruffles. Just a hint of ruffles though, so this playful statement piece should remain a staple long after the trends are gone.
Pencil skirts have proved to be flattering on nearly all shapes and Thuy’s skirts in caviar tweed (silver lurex and black woven tweed) and tigerlily silk cotton cloque (red textured cotton-silk blend) look to be no exception! Cross diagonal seams and side seam pockets ensure a snug fit.
My personal fave would have to be the Slouchy Trompe l’oeil (French for “trick the eye”) high-waisted skirt. The “trick the eye” part comes in the form of a faux seam opening at the front with contrasting fabric underneath. The black slouch skirt is made from Bernetta – a French silk textured organza that sits stiffly to maintain the slouch, and gives off a light sheen. For those that like something a little more natural and loose-fitting, have a look at the jade skirt made from a viscose blend. Both skirts have the slouchy front pocket reminiscent of current fad boyfriend jeans (boyfriend skirt? Hmm.), but hopefully the skirt will outlive the trend!
