Just when you thought current trends have done away with all forms of traditional femininity in clothes we get to zoom into one of the most feminine trends of them all. I must say as much as I’m a sucker for androgynous fashion I also appreciate it when ladies really tap into their feminine side without losing what their power and stronghold in their positions.
I remember that I have written an article focusing on just the Zara Skort not so long ago and anyone would testify my great affection with that little super chic number. Today I will take it a step further and cover all my favorite skirts we are seeing both on the runways and on the streets. One would usually think that skirts can be somewhat boring and very conservative. Designers and all trend setters around the world have come to give you skirts in all shapes, sizes and textures to suit your taste.
The full circle skirt: this not so little chic clothing item has been spotted all over these streets of this fashion world. Kerry Washington was breathtaking at this year’s NAACP Image Awards in a Oscar de la Renta gown which had an amazing mint blue full circle skirt with an irregular hemline.
Midi skirts are just as hot if not hotter, we’ve seen these from Stella McCartney, Christian Dior and Michael Kors. With just those few names who are a huge deal in the fashion world in a global scale, this just proves that this item is tailored especially for you as a fashion forward lady.
The most fascinating thing about most of these different skirts doing the rounds in fashion lately is that they’re very timeless so you won’t have to worry about what you gonna do with it next season. Also they just give that lady-like touch to any outfit. If you’re going to invest in one of these babies, you’ll be happy to find out that you don’t really have to go all out with the top to pair it with, you can be all daring and bare some skin with a cropped top or a simple sheer shirt. There you have it, now you know what to add on your fashion bucket list.
