to be worn as an accessory rather than an item of clothing in itself, the cage skirt is currently experiencing a comeback of sorts. although technically acne's original version first popped up on their ss08 runway, it was never produced for stores [gasp] so the fashion pack have not been able to rip into this until now. norwegian wood has a fabulous online store via etsy and debut label savant is offering a more grown-up version at i dont like mondays. try layering patterned versions over solids (like a form-fitting tube dress a la christy last monday) or vice versa (the solid stripes of the cage actually work well in breaking up a busy print). for the fuss-fearsome, topshop have a very cute all-in-one option in the form of a seamed, structured tulip mini. a penny for your thoughts?
