Trend of the Day - Skater Dresses

Beautiful silhouettes with flirtatious hemlines and whimsical fabrics are Skater dresses which trace back their origin to the dresses wore by ice skaters as dance costumes.

In 2013, every designer house from Stella Mc Cartney to John Galliano, Louis Vuitton to Christian Dior, all have made huge impressions with different variations for the  Spring Summer ’13 collection. The dress has a trademark cut and comes in fitted at the waistline and then skims over the hips and thighs in the way of a full circle skirt. The only prerequisite to wearing it is great legs.

The reason the skater dress has remained so popular is because it is a flattering and easy-to-wear style for just about any body shapes. You can team it with a pair of flats or heels for summers and layer it up with a blazer or a cardigan along with a pair of tights if the weather is cold. Since the design is quite modest it can be worn for a number of occasions including work, social events and parties. There are lots of patterns and colours to choose from and the dress can be easily accessorised with a belt and handbag. Accessorize to your liking. 

Bonus fashion point: Just make sure to get the right dress size for your body, nothing too loose or too tight. For those who are blessed with wider hips, the twirly skirt cut may accentuate the size of your posterior to the point that it may not be too flattering. So to avoid this, please give the dress a try and a twirl before purchasing.

For hourglass-shaped gals, you’d be a fan for life as the skater dress will hug you gently around your curves making you look ultra feminine. .
