It’s no secret I am a huge fan of full skirts. They’ve show up on this blog at least once a week for the last five years, and I am wearing a full-skirted dress at Visible Monday. I love the comfort, the freedom to walk or bike, the feminine shape and the throwback to styles of the 1950’s.
As always, the first tip is: wear full skirts if you like them. Conventional style wisdom says to pair a full skirt with a fitted top. A loose-over-loose silhouette is also appealing and I do it frequently in the summer. I prefer mine at the knee or below, but a full tulle skirt, for example, looks wonderful above the knee.
Always room in my closet for a swooshy full skirt:
Our Visible Women like them too, and they provide inspiration for incorporating full skirts into your own style:
Nancy of Nancy’s Fashion Style chose a gently flared skirt in a bold print. The wide belt looks especially fab and calls back to the 50’s. A cropped jacket like Nancy’s shows off the shape of her skirt too:
Vale of Fashion And Cookies chose a maxi length full skirt in a gorgeous neutral olive. Wear this with any top – and Vale picked a feminine embellished tee. I’m crazy for her sequined sneakers:
Sacramento of Mis Papelicos does a 70’s style sheer print skirt that’s fuller at the hem. And she chose an easy silhouette for her top, so everything just flows beautifully. Go bold with your earrings, like Mis P:
Tiina of Elegance Revisited goes traditionally elegant in a coordinated full skirt and ladylike cardigan, again cropped at the waist. Love that pink bag:
Trina of Tea Time With Trina takes a striped knee-length full skirt and pairs it with a WOW floral top, for a modern mix:
Elsie of The Cooking Wardrobe does it the dress way: a full and flowy skirt with a gorgeous crossover bodice. Graceful and lovely:
How do you like your full skirts?
