WHY CROPPED? A
SECOND SKIN is the best description for this collection of under pieces called LAYERS. They are simple body hugging separates designed to create a sleeve, change a neckline or conceal areas sensitive to the wearer. You can wear them as outer garments, but their main purpose is to cover arms etc. We call them hosiery for the body. The fabric quality is outstanding and strong. It’s an E- Core spun yarn using a tubular knit interlock system. They are ideal for travel as they can address climate changes by simply adding warmth under another garment or add sleeves when the need arises. LAYERS are affordable, fade resistant, easy care and pill free. Designed as style solutions, they can add necks, sleeves or hems when worn under outer garments. The most misunderstood element of LAYERS is the cropped styles. (See one below) They are not designed to be worn as an outer wear midriff, although on page 49 we do show one worn as an outerwear garment. The reason for the crop above the waist is that it eliminates the bulking effect that would be created on your waist by an additional layer. They are designed to be worn under another garment. There are two skirt styles, one short (photographed) and one longer. Both can create dresses, pull you in, add length to other skirts or add lengths to tunics.
