Drawstrings are no longer for sloppy sweats or casual hoodies. The new breed of drawstring appears on polished skirts, pants and dresses, providing an adjustable fit and a sense of ease. Designers used the strings in unexpected ways: wide tape creates a “bunched” hemline, or a self-fabric sash gathers in a halter neckline.
