Spring/ Summer 2015 Trend: Ladylike Length Skirts

Spring/ Summer 2015 Trend: Ladylike Length Skirts

| On 30, Nov 2014

Leaving much to the imagination has never looked so good. The conservative skirt is back! 

For seasons past, the skirt that ruled the runway and the streets was the mini. Showing off the legs, fitted, and a little bit risque was the way to wear it. But now, it’s a very different story.

Whether it’s right below the knee, mid-calf or all the way to the floor, the demure skirt is the only way to wear it for the season ahead. While provocative fashion is always something to talk about, it’s time to elongate the hemline and take on a more elegant style.

Since the 50’s and 60’s, the conservative skirt has not seen a revival like it has in the past year. When I think of these skirts, I think of glamour, sophistication, effortless chic and grace. The way a woman carries herself while wearing these types of skirts paints a beautiful image and it is refreshing to see this coming back into fashion in such a modern age.

The full skirt and also elongated pencil skirts have been featured heavily on the runways of designers like Carolina Herrera, Giambattista Valli, Oscar de la Renta, Emilio Pucci, Lanvin, Christian Siriano, Gucci & Marchesa in recent seasons, cementing the comeback of sophisticated dressing.

Now let’s talk style. Full skirts can sometimes to be overpowering and quite restricted but it’s up to your personal tastes to make it work. Overlapping layers of sheer, feathers, tulle, and silk are quite the statement textures and done in shades of peach, black, red & brown make for a chic look. Patterns of polka dots, geometric shapes, florals combined with bright colours are sure to be seen on the streets for Summer 2015.

If you don’t opt for the full skirt, the elongated pencil skirt also works well and is just as sophisticated. Paired with a white button up and statement heels, the elongated pencil skirt is a staple for any women this season.

The conservative skirt is here to stay, and makes this writer quite happy.
