The Look for Fall 2005: The Prepubescent Victorian
See the collections of Peter Som, Rebecca Taylor, and Cynthia Steffe (okay, hers is more postwar prepubescent).

It's the high-waisted, above-the-knee coats, I think. Empire waists always make women look rather flat-chested, in my opinion, and when you pair it with an above-the-knee skirt--a skirt length suitable only for the youngest girls in Victorian times--and thick, curve-concealing fabrics, the overall effect is infantilizing. And creepy.
