Skater Skirts

Skater skirts are in no way a new trend, but one that keeps coming back into fashion or that never really goes away! Super flattering on all figures, its flared shape emphasies curves and helps create a small waist and incredibly long legs! High waisted, mini length and with a flare, the skater skirt can be worn day or night in a especially with the amount of patterns and styles available!

Skater skirts were originally produced in the 1980s, trends were inspired by ice skating dancers seen on television and sporting events. This is how the skater skirt got its name, being based on the high-waisted and full circle skirts worn by athletes to best show off their grace and beauty during routines. The skater skirt is not just for icy months, though, it's versatile enough to wear in spring, summer, autumn and winter alike.

Summer is the perfect time to wear a skater skirt, with warm weather being an excellent opportunity to spend time in the sun and bring out the sandals. The skater skirt is the most fashionable skirt of the summer because you can wear it with anything! More playful than other trends, with so many comic book and cartoon print designs, it's the perfect outfit for fun in the sun. By autumn, people consider putting skirts to the wardrobe until the sun comes back– but with tights and boots, a chunky cardigan or some casual layers, the skater skirt is just as fashion forward. In winter with leggings to keep warm and boots, any winter coat or jacket can be worn with a skater skirt to look on trend as well as weather appropriate.

Whether it’s plain colours, animal prints or anything else in between there is sure to be a style that appeals. Try the skater skirt and it will become a wardrobe favourite, easy to wear with anything and everything!
