This season you are sure to see one of the latest fashion trends – full skirts. The full skirt is a totally feminine way to wear a stylish skirt that is not only stylish, but also extremely comfortable. A welcome addition to fashion trends, the comfortable skirt that is also flattering and feminine is something so popular that it is difficult to find such skirts in stock. Consider a few examples of this great fashion trend that have quickly become some of our favorite must have skirts this season.
First, consider the Lija Skirt. This skirt by designer Velvet by Graham and Spencer is truly a perfect blend of a classic style with contemporary details like the raw edge and the high waist. The skirt of course flares which makes it a full skirt that also will make you feel girly and feminine on while also making it very comfortable and flattering. This is a great “go to” skirt that can be worn out running errands on a weekend or with the right top and accessories dressed up and worn to a dressy occasion too. Available in basic black, this skirt is a must have summer essential. It is also a jersey cotton so it is comfortable and casual enough to literally go from day to night and is also machine washable to boot.
Similarly, the Fanya Skirt which is also by Velvet is another example of a great full skirt. This skirt, however, is more than just a great classic flared skirt, because it also features a diagonal stripe pattern and an asymmetric hem and a diagonal line across the waist for accent. The pattern shifts at this seam as well giving it a natural break and added distinction. In fact, the Fanya skirt is actually a great modern interpretation of the classic full skirt. This skirt is made from a cotton tencel blend so it is the ultimate soft, comfortable fabric and easy to wear again for casual and dressy occasions depending on what you wear it with and how you accessorize it. I love the raw edges again at the hem and the stripe pattern that really does make this a distinctive skirt. Best of all it is available in Night a navy/black stripe contrast, Highland a taupe/brown stripe and Green House a contrasting light green/dark green stripe pattern.
As you can see, both of these skirts are great examples of modern updates to a classic full skirt style that is also extremely wearable and by default also extremely comfortable with their wearable, comfortable fabrics and the natural fit of the full skirt style. Obviously the Lija skirt has a more classic approach, but the asymmetrical line and the complementary stripe pattern which makes this skirt a great distinctive full skirt alternative. Best of all both of these skirts are extremely versatile and can be worn to most casual and even certain dressy occasions with a number of different style of tops and accessories.
