Designers Have Us Jumping Through Hoops

Fashion took a playful turn on volume this season with the hoop skirt. Channeling Scarlett O'Hara, Thakoon showed a pleated, gray version, belted at the waist. Rodarte offered up a few hoops, including this bright gold dress worn with a gray cardigan. Calvin Klein, always the minimalist, took a more subtle approach and had his skirts simply puff out at bottom. Finally, a fun, new silhouette worth giving a damn about.
