When this trend first emerged, I had every faith that even the most obedient jegging-clad fashion cyborgs would tweak that this was just another conspiracy from the fashion industry. Apparently this amazing invention flatters all shapes, sizes, ages and styles. And yes, Alexa Chung was born well dressed. I believe there are a number of key reasons why you can't let go. It gives you the opportunity to accessorise till dawn with tan belts and trilbies and bangles. You don't even need to have your legs waxed. And it "hides" those wobbly bits. The truth is, 99% of the time they are sloppy and unimaginative, and makes the wearer look wider and shorter. Just like a Christmas tree.
