Knee-length pencil skirts may be an ideal option for conservative office environments but, when off the clock, give those legs a bit more breathing room with a coquettish and perfectly on-trend, flippy skater skirt.
Featuring A-line silhouettes, mid-thigh lengths, and pleats or folds that create a sense of movement as you walk, swaying and bouncing playfully, these skirts pay homage to bottoms traditionally worn by figure skating vixens (hence their name!).
Whether worn with crop tops and strappy sandals, long-sleeve blouses and blazers with platform pumps, crewneck sweaters and ankle booties, tank tops and denim jackets with wedge sneakers, or graphic tees and motorcycle jackets, skater skirts can be styled in such a manner as to create any style personality you desire – from rocker chic to classically preppy, kitschy and retro, dainty and ladylike, or edgy and cosmopolitan.
If you want a skater skirt that will match nearly everything in your closet, try the black Attention ponte knit skirt, which features an interior elastic waistband that creates the illusion of a smooth front, a drop waist with a stitched seam accent, and a moderate A-line cut.
If you like juxtaposing different textures in your ensembles, consider the Dream Out Loud jacquard skater skirt, which has a flounced design and boasts a raised floral pattern that gives the piece a fascinating three-dimensional quality.
And, if you’re looking for a skirt with plenty of swing, look no further than the Attention pleated skirt, which features sharp knife pleats that give the piece an airy, bouncy feel.
Whatever your preferred style, just remember that every skater skirt calls for a little twirl!
