As much as we love our body con dresses and skirts, they just aren’t practical or appropriate for everyday occasions. Still, many college women are reluctant to don flippy mini skirts for fear of looking too childish. You can get the same look with this season’s biggest trend, which takes those beloved skirts from our childhood and gives them an adult-approved makeover! Seen everywhere from the biggest names in high fashion to the most underground style blogs, skater dresses and skirts will revolutionize the way you dress up (and down) this spring!
With finals closer than ever, who has the patience to fuss over a glamourous outfit before class? A denim skater skirt is one of the most effortless ways to look stylish as the semester comes to a close. Because of the traditional blue wash, a denim skater skirt can be paired with any of the tops you wear with jeans or denim shorts. With clean, stitched hems, these skirts look super-neat; light wash and high-rise styles, as depicted by the model above, further enhance this fresh zeal.
On A Date
A skater dress is simple enough for a day date, but can be styled for a dinner date, as well. In addition to just dates, these pieces are suitable for any dressy occasion you will attend this spring and summer, from graduations to holiday celebrations. To get the most out of this ensemble, stick to only one patterned piece; too many prints will end up looking busy and messy. So, if you have chosen a printed dress, accessorize with solids, and vice versa.
For A Night Out
Think warm weather is a signal to pack away the leather? Think again! While it’s a smart move not to go out in head-to-toe motorcycle apparel, leather can still be stylish this time of year; a breezy, skater skirt does just that. Because of the loose fit of skater skirts, leather styles won’t cling to your body and cause sweating or discomfort. Unlike typical, tight party skirts, a leather skater skirt is subtly sexy and leaves some things to the imagination. Rock one of these skirts on your next night out for a unique, glam vibe!
