Today, I will be decoding the emerging trend that is the skater skirt! The skater skirt is described as a “short, high-waisted circle skirt with a hemline above the knee, often made of lighter materials to the flowing effect that mimics the skirts of figure skaters.” This particular style of skirt proves flattering to a wide array of body types due to the fact that it elongates the legs with its short length, can decrease the attention of the hips and create a beautiful, skater-like effect. Here are ways that I find you can rock the skater skirt trend in both the warmer months and cooler seasons:
The first collage is comprised of different looks by fellow bloggers who have created their own spin on the skater skirt. In order to properly style the skater skirt for the summer, one should pair this hot mini with either a bustier or a sleeveless top. High-heeled shoes or booties should be worn in order to emphasize the length of your legs along with the short hem of the skirt. Finally, an embellished belt or chunky bag can be used to add a certain oomph to the final look.
This second collage is comprised of different looks from bloggers who were able to successfully use special accessories to make this summer staple to a beautiful, winter embellishment. In order to properly style a winter skater, I suggest adding either a cute pair of printed tights or knee – high boots in order to add warmth and style. For a top, a long sleeved blouse or an oversized sweater will completely balance out the look. Finish this look off with a pair of warm, winter booties and a cute scarf.
