Figure Skating

6.06.2013 WRITTEN BY Angela How to Wear, T+P Blog Central

Sports has always had a major influence on fashion, whether it be baseball hats, tracksuits, tennis shoes, etc. And fashion has reciprocated a la olympic uniforms, team jerseys, gymnastics, and of course ice skating.


This spring’s runways, celebrity and street fashions have taken interest in the skater skirt. Whether it is paired with a button down or a basic tee, the style defines the waist to create an hour-glass shape.


Hemlines are best short on this style, so it is recommended to leave this style for the weekend or try it with tights for the less conservative workplace.


Fullness of the 5o’s and mini-ness of the 60’s, the skater skirt is the perfect blend of modern and flirty.  The style looks best with a blouse tucked in or if you are daring a crop top but keep the bare midriff to a minimum.


To keep the waist defined, patterns should be reserved either for top or bottom, but if mixing prints is your thing choose carefully to retain the hour-glass shape.
