It's a Revolution of Lengtitude!

Girls, it's time to stop wearing dresses that threaten to expose your private regions. Even Britney Spears has stopped doing it. So should you.

Its a Revolution of an attitude of length! Revolting against the ubiquity of the ultra-short dress are long skirts, and wide legged pants, back to the 70s, when the mini was toppled. Thats right, wide, long and lean is back!

It's sending a message to girls: showing skin does not necessarily make you sexy. I find that sex appeal, when not obvious and in your face is the best.

Vogue tells us - "Longer, leaner, luxer - Elegantly Louche - Is the new cocktail-hour look", in an editorial in their October 2010 issue titled 'The Society Slouch'. Photographed by Patrick Demarchelier.

Grance Dore proclaims: Wide is Back!

The new approach to length was resonated all over the fall/winter runways. Marc Jacobs, Celine, Chloe, Calvin Klein and Dries Van Noten all came out with different variations to the new attitude to length.

You don't know how to do a wide and long legged outfit, you say? Put on a soft silk blouse, with your wide-legged pants, and of course, great heels that you can hide under the wide pants. The heels add that extra za-za-zoo. Bam! Insta-chic.
