Fashion Education 101: Skirts

I started graduate school this semester and was inspired to have a mini class of my own. Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to Fashion 101. LESSON 5!

Fashion Education 101: Skirts

Skirts are so fun and amazing! I have also found out there are SO many types of them!

I hope you enjoy!

1. A line

Fitted at the hips then flares out.

Image

2. Ballerina

A full skirt that reaches to mid-calf or just above ankles, often made up of multiple layers of fabric.

Image

3. Bubble

Skirts that bubble. They either look good or bad on people.

Image

4. Circle/Circular

There can be mini, long and full circle skirts. A skirt that’s cut in sections to make one or more circles with a hole for the waist.

Image

Image

5. Fit

These are really in right now.

ImageImage

6. Flared

Skirts that flare at the end, can be short or long.

Image

7. Full

Skirts that have room between one’s legs and fabric.

Image

Image

8. High waisted

Skirts that are high on thee waist.

Image

9. Hobble

I like to believe these are named hobble skirts because they make the girls literally hobble place to place. These are definitely vintage.

Image

Image

10. Lehenga

A skirt that is long, embroidered and pleated. They are worn in India.

Image

11. Maxi

Skirts that are long.

Image

12. Mermaid

The end of the skirt looks like a mermaid.

Image

13. Micro

Skirts that are TOO short.

Image

14. Mini

These are not too short but just right.

Image

15. Pencil aka straight skirt

Image

Image

16. Peplum

Image

Image

17. Pleated

Image

18. Poodle

I love these!

Image

19. Rah Rah skirt

Short flounced skirt, popularized in the 80s, started with cheerleaders.

Image

20. Scooter aka Skort

I am not going to lie I forgot these existed. I haven’t heard or seen them since I was in 3rd grade. I am now 23.

Image

21. Sheath

These are different from pencil skirts, pencil skirts are tighter.

Image

22. Short/long

Great blog to help with really specific skirts and skirts in general.

My morning was too eventful! lol. So I woke up 30 minutes late; had to get everything I needed for my 15 hour day ahead of me plus I had to wear business casual which to my surprise does not include leggings. : (. Well behold!! ALL of my pants are at my dads so I had my choice of summer dress, another summer dress or another summer dress OR my way too authentic 1950s pencil skirt; which is meant to be worn for like 2 hours. Yeap I am wearing it! So along with my bookbag, yes I now have to wear a bookbag and my 20 pound purse, I walk to USF. So my lungs can be filled with tire burning toxins and the great outdoors. Mind you I am still in a pencil skirt that is anti-breathing. I am also wearing rain boots, because why not make it rain on this day! THEN an old’s lady’s dog, who is not on a leash, runs to me and starts barking! SCARY! The little lady, who is shorter than me, simply tells the dog SPARKIE, who is a beast, to let the little girl pass to get to school. I am like what the heck are you going to do when this dog starts gnawing on me!? SOOOOOOOO after all this I come to my last and most challenging part of my morning. I cross a creek to get to USF. Yes please read that again; little white girly girl crosses creek in pencil skirt! God has a wicked sense of humor. I hope I brought you some entertainment for the day. : }

BUT I looked good while doing this. That is what counts; well at least for my blog. When running late and needing to look great appear on the same morning. Resort to the pencil skirt; this is why your legs should always be shaved ladies. A pencil skirt instantly makes a woman have an hour glass figure and look classy. Every girl should have at least one. Now be warned that pencil skirts are meant for sitting and standing. DO not wear these for clubs or days which require a lot of movement. They are meant to look cute; that is their purpose.
