Welcome to our very first Style Glossary post! In this series, we’re going to give insight into the more obscure cuts and styles of some our new (and fabulous) items! This week we’re going to start with the paper bag waist. We predict that this unique look is going to be hot this spring – and with good reason.
A paper bag cut generally means a garment features extra fabric at the waist – making it perfect for belting! Typically worn high at the waist, it creates a feminine silhouette that adds shape to an outfit, making it chic, but not overdone. Our Midnight in Manhattan Skirt is one of many paper bag style skirts that will be featured on ModCloth this Spring. Vasil created a cafe-ready style by pairing it with our Victorian Boho Blouse, but you could try it with a basic tee to keep the look simple, yet stylish. Do you have a style term you’d like brought to light? Let us know! Thanks for reading, and as always, happy shopping!
