I was in Bloomingdale’s today and spotted these two darling looks. I’m kind of loving the fuller skirt for spring! It’s ladylike, comfortable, and generally flattering. While I would probably shorten both of these to be more knee-length, I’m still really into them. And check out those pops of yellow. Perfection.
Full skirts have a cool retro feel to them. And they’re considered flattering because they create the illusion of a small waist, while blossoming out at the hem (which helps to cover any below-the-waist areas you’re not too keen on). If you’re going to rock one of these, keep in mind this general rule: when you have volume in one place, keep it slimmer elsewhere. Therefore, if you’re going with a fuller skirt, the top should be more slim-fitting, and probably tucked in. And a belt never hurts!
Other than that, anything goes. These look fantastic with heels, chic summer sandals or simple ballet flats.
