Spring 2011: Skirt Trends

It’s still far too cold to fantasize about skirts without tights. But pretty soon the dregs of winter will start to melt away and your legs can see the light of day again. Until then, read on for spring skirt trends to look forward to. These freshly picked skirts were blooming all over the Paris Fashion Week runways, and we picked our five favourites to share with you.

Knee length

A knee length skirt is timeless. It can be dressed up or down, and can easily go from professional to sexy with the right shape. A straight cut is great for work, but avoid looking dowdy by tucking it into a feminine top and pairing it with a waist belt. Or try a pencil knee length skirt for a night out.

A-line and tulip

A little more flirty and romantic, a-line and tulip skirts are so fitting for spring because of their versatile materials. A-line skirts can range from flared linen to flowy chiffon, while tulip skirts look great in satin or cotton. Pair with a t-shirt and chunky necklace for a classic spring look.

Full length

Flowy nude full length skirts are hot for spring. Try out a beaded or embroidered one for a boho look, or try a skirt in a bold colour or pattern for a statement piece. But nix a loose top if you’re going flowy on the bottom to avoid looking shapeless.

The coat skirt

Technically this one can be considered a coat dress, but at least there’s a skirt on the bottom. This skirt is perfect for spring’s transitional temperatures, when it’s not quite warm enough for sundresses but not quite cold enough for heavy coats. Try a coat dress in a lightweight material that has a belted waist to show off your silhouette.
