The Specialty Skirt

To round out June we are highlighting six different skirts of a special style…

The Mini Skirt: These sky high hemlines reached their heights in 1960 and are still going strong. Mini’s come in all fabrics and styles and can be worn dressed to the nines or dressed down for a fun flirty summer afternoon.

The Pencil Skirt: Pencil skirts fit just as you would imagine… Straight and narrow. The hemline typically falls knee length or just below. Dior introduced the first in the 40’s and it has gained popularity since. Usually considered the working woman’s skirt, it is most often seen paired with a suit and pumps.photo-2

The Tulip Skirt: One look at this skirt and you won’t wonder how it received it’s name. With a cinched waistline it eases around the hips and then tapers at the knees. It is made in many fabrics and colors and because of the shape can accommodate various shapes and sizes.

The Ra-Ra Skirt: This skirt originated from the cheerleading skirt and made it’s raging debut in the Mega 80’s. It was rocked in leather, denim or lace allowing the wearer to sashay their way through the day.

The Poodle Skirt: Made of felt, this skirt made its appearance in the 1950’s. It’s often brought back during Halloween and High School Spirit Week Sock Hops.

The Denim Skirt: This speaks to the fabric more than the style. Denim skirts are perhaps the most versatile of all skirts. They range from maxi’s to mini’s and all cuts in between! Dress them up or dress them down, this is one piece that will never go out of style!
