Kutesko points instead to Dior’s Trapeze line of 1958 – “a fluid liberation of the body from the cinched waist popular at the time” – and the designers Rei Kawakubo and Yohji Yamamoto who designed clothes in the 1980s that “didn’t fit clothing to the body, but rewrote the body through fashion, calling for a new perception of beauty that many women really did find empowering”. Still, not everyone is convinced that loose dresses are a move away from dictatorial beauty standards. Elizabeth Kutesko, a lecturer in cultural studies, finds this reframing “simplistic, or unconvincing at least”.

A tent dress is a dress that hangs loose from shoulder to below the hips, and does not have a waistline. [1] They are worn without belts.In 2013 the New York Times called this style the “sheltering dress”; Ditte Reffstrup, the creative director of the Danish brand Ganni, who brought the shape to the high street, describes it as “a loud silhouette”; and the internet has spawned the term “baggy con” for the look. As for runway inspiration look to designers such as Cecilie Bahnsen, Molly Goddard and Ganni; on the high street Arket, Free People, & Other Stories and Zara (obviously) are our go-tos. For Kutesko, the freedom to play with body shape via clothing rather than by hiding it was the key, although she does concede: “It’s hard to generalise because the history of western European fashion is so closely tied to accentuating the female form.” You could argue this is a different form of power dressing,” says Susanna Cordner, a senior research fellow at the London College of Fashion, who is interested in “fashions that let women take up space in public” – AKA womanspreading. “Clothes aren’t just about fit but also feeling: how it feels to wear them and move in them and how the world around you will relate to you,” she says.

The tent dress was one of the trends in 2007. [2] They are sold in most department stores or clothes-carrying supermarkets, and may also be home-made or tailor-made.
