If, like me, your Holidays were a bit of a lavish affair and you’re still struggling to hide/lose/slice off those extra bulgy bits, you don’t need to resort to the kitchen cupboard and a sharp knife for some DIY plastic surgery. Simply don a drapey knit and presto – lumpy bits are thrown into strange zen like coma, where they struggle to figure out how to emerge from said devious drapes, and thus bring your life crashing back to its self loathing norm.
Hurrah for brands like MaxMara, Acne and Vivienne Westwood who know how to embrace the power of the drape and make it work in your favor. Think knits, dresses and tops with strategic draping that make you breathe a sigh of relief. I’m not advocating giving up the gym membership altogether, the draping trend just buys you a few more weeks to get back on the straight and narrow.
