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

Image

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

Day 28

Day 28, the last day of the 28 Day Challenge.ImageImage

Image

What I learned. I am still crafting my summer style. I have discovered I like bright colors and black; no dull or relaxing colors. I like to pop! I love heels and jewelry. I don’t really like shorts (except for my American flag ones) so I need to buy more skirts. My number one enemy is heat. The heat made it very hard to be comfy and cute. I plan on doing another 28 day challenge in the fall. My season! But until then…some items I feel I should add to my summer wardrobe.
