The full skirt was born from the genius of one of the greatest couturiers in the history of fashion: Christian Dior. In 1947 the designer created the New Look, characterized by a squeezed waist and a wide, fluffy skirt. A way to celebrate women after the austerity of the 40s. She was often worn with light shirts and stiletto heels, the typical bon ton style so popular in that period. Among the most favorite images featuring this garment, Audrey Hepburn in Roman Holiday, while she whizzes on a retro Vespa. Today she is the protagonist again, and we find her as a must-have for next spring/summer 2021. In mini, midi and maxi versions, here’s how to wear it according to the season’s latest trends.
The full skirt with the turtleneck: The one with the turtleneck is a classic combination that Prada has interpreted together with Raf Simons in a new way, playing with overlays and colors and completing the skirt with a sporty-inspired belt. On the feet sling-back pink.
The full skirt with the blazer: This is how the full skirt was born, with this combination. Therefore, we could only analyze a Dior look, which still maintains that refined and bon ton side, combining it with a more relaxed approach. It is in line with the moment’s needs, starting with the fabrics, which are light and comfortable.
The full skirt with Sportswear: The mix and match trend has risen to combinations that see together garments from distant worlds, such as bon ton and sportswear. Brandon Maxwell, for example, pairs his full skirt with a tracksuit jacket. This combination will be among the coolest of the season.
The full skirt with the shirt or with the cropped top: This combination also comes from the past. But today, the hems are getting shorter. According to the latest trends, the more the tops become micro, the more the skirt becomes maxi. A game of contrasts for those who love daring looks.
The full tulle skirt with contrasting garments: An example? The tulle skirt, romantic and super fluffy, combined with garments in contrasting styles, such as leather, in Alexander McQueen style.
