Proportion of Skirt.

Introduction.
dot  To put on a skirt for a man can require a long research in the stores. That also requires to know some rules on the proportions. According to the dictionary, the word proportion means: "harmonious report/ratio of the parts between them and with the unit".

  Le nombre d'or en matière de proportion est 1.618. Ainsi si l'on divise une longueur de 100 cm par 1.618, on obtient deux segments: l'un mesure 61.8cm et l'autre mesure 38.2 cm. Cette proportion entre ces deux longueurs est considérée comme particulièrement esthétique.

Ideal proportion of the human body.
dot  It is considered that ideally, a man measures 7 times and half the height of his head.

Proportion of the human body in the fashion drawing.
dot  For reasons of esthetics, the fashion drawing prefers longer figurines lengthened under the size.

In the fashion drawing, a man measures 8 times and half the height of his head.

dot  Head (of the top to the chin) : 1 head

Ideal proportion between naked part and clothed part.

dot  For the explanation of the ideal proportions, we will use figurines of height of 8 heads by forgetting the feet.If we divide this number 8 by the gold figure 1.618 we obtain the 5/3 proportion.

dot  The naked part of our body is opposed to the clothed part. This opposition create a visual relation. If this proportion respects the gold figure, it is harmonious.

dot  In this sketch, the dress represents 5 heads (bust: 2 + basin: 1 + legs: 2) while the naked part represents 3 heads (head: 1 + legs: 2). the proportion of the 5/3 is thus respected. If the dress went down to the top from the calves, we would have a less becoming proportion of 6/2 less close to the gold figure.

Ideal proportion of clothing between them.

dot  In the following sketch, clothing represents 5 heads (bust: 2 + basin: 1 + legs: 2) while the naked part represents 3 heads (head: 1 + legs: 2).

dot  The problem is to define the length of the jacket compared to the length of the skirt. If we divide this number 5 by the gold figure 1.618, we obtain 3/2 proportion.

dot  The jacket is worth 3 heads (bust: 2 + basin: 1) and the skirt 2 heads (legs: 2). We thus respect the gold ciffer.

Integrated silhouette.

dot  If we equip the naked part - by sticking, trousers, make-up, hairstyle, ... - the opposition between the naked part and the clothed part disappears. Visual contrast is founded only on differences of colours or texture. It will be then the relation of clothing between them which will have to be taken into account to determine the most harmonious proportion. Here are some examples:

dot  dark hairstyle + dark dress: 5 heads
dot  clear legs: 3 heads

dot  clear hairstyle + clear jacket: 5 heads
dot  dark skirt + dark stick + dark shoes : 3 heads

dot  dark hairstyle + dark sweet: 3 heads
dot  clear trousers + clear shoes: 5 heads

dot  clear hairstyle + clear sweet: 3 heads
dot  dark skirt + dark boots : 5 heads

Mais le symbole plus emblématique de la mode à la garçonne est la coupe de cheveux. Incarnée au cinéma par l’actrice Louise Brook, la coupe courte devient célèbre et est porté par toutes les femmes. Symbole d'émancipation, la coupe courte séduit et s'impose. En 1925, une femme sur trois aurait fait couper ses cheveux. Mais déjà en 1903, Colette arborait la coiffure courte. En mai 1917 Paul Morand écrit : « depuis 3 jours, c’est la mode de porter les cheveux courts. Toutes, elle suivent le mouvement, mené par Mme Letellier et Channel…». Les cheveux sont donc coiffés suivant la mode masculine, sous un chapeau cloche, à haute caloque cylindrique et dont les bords étroits tombent juste au dessus des sourcils. Les frères Antoine et René Rambaud devienne maitre dans l’art de cette coiffure qui fut renommer la coupe à la garçonne.

Je porte les jupes Hyatus depuis 3 ans, pour le sport et la ville.
Autour dr moi, les femmes y sont favorables et certains hommes sont prés à oser le port de la jupe

Bravo pour ce magnifique site
Dommage que les articles sur la jupe se fassent rares.
Je me suis mis à porter la jupe de temps en temps depuis un an. Au début difficile de s'aventurer en ville tant la crainte des regards est grande. Mais en fait, cela passe assez bien. Cependant, j'ai l'impression d'être bien seul et j'aimerais bien que d'autres osent et que ce vêtement puisse ainsi être porté plus facilement.
Je précise que je suis un jeune senior et c'est par plaisir que je porte la jupe. Liberté de mouvement, originalité, confort.
Espérant que tout cela évolue vite...
