Last post in this short working week as I don’t know about you but things are crazy busy for me at the moment! This post today is dedicated to the perfect wiggle frock. The style is called the wiggle because of the narrow cut about the knees. Choose a fabric with some stretch should you wish to stride unencumbered.
Did you know that Nigella Lawson wore a wiggle dress on a US TV show earlier this year and sparked a frenzy for the style?
There are lots of fabulous women out there embracing their curves much in the way of Joan Holloway in the fabulously stylish series, Mad Men. Here’s a little collage of actress, Christina Hendricks, rocking the wiggle.
I photographed Lucy at a recent viewing of The Great Gatsby organised by Lala productions. Post-work, Lucy is the epitome of chic, topping of her wiggle work frock with a black coat flung stylishly around her shoulders.
Where to get a wiggle frock:
- Vintage from etsy, simply search “wiggle dress“
- On sale at Leona Edmiston
- As a little black dress by Wheels and Doll Baby
- As a belted black dress on ASOS in regular or cut especially for petites
- Or get the silhouette with a wiggle skirt, simply pair with your basic work tops.
So what makes a wiggle frock perfect for work?
Done well I think that it is a great look for the wintry season and transfers perfectly from work to after-work events. The cut is form-fitting so I like how Lucy has opted for a high-neck option for the office. Personally I like to throw a cardigan about the shoulders which I fasten with a sweater guard to tone down the curves and I’ve recently started experimenting with light knit jumpers layered over the top and belted.
