TREND ALERT - Voluminous midi and maxi skirts, add a modern twist to a classic silhouette this coming Spring / Summer. The voluminous ladylike silhouette is here to stay. The full skirt, which comes in different volumes, formal silhouette and various lengths. If you need more drama in your outfit without going avant-garde, this skirt is the solution.
What makes a skirt a midi is length. It can be flared or fitted it really doesn’t matter; length is truly the determining factor. A midi skirt is one that runs below the knee to mid-calf. It is usually made with a higher waist line and compliments almost all body types and that is why it is such a popular trend. Max skirts obviously go all the way to the floor.
are massive this season, urging us all to channel our fairy-tale-meets-Grace-Kelly persona. Whether in toned down hues or bold neon shades, prints or patterns these full shapes make us all look like retro dolls in a very modern sophisticated way.
If you have not channelled a voluminous, calf-grazing skirt before, this summer you have no more excuses to postpone such a fashion moment. The skirt style feels utterly formal, but it is actually easier to wear than you might think. It's easy to assume that the full midi is strictly for evenings, but good old street style proves that to be very wrong.
here are my tips on wearing the Voluminous skirt:
Pair with a simple T-shirt for day if it's a skirt (probably our favourite look) and don't be afraid to try out flats - it really does work, even if you're on the shorter side.
While you can wear almost anything with it, we've seen enough of the voluminous skirt and cropped top pairing that we consider it the perfect combination.
Something fitted will help tone down the volume of your silhouette. It will also emphasize your waist or create one if you are lacking in that department.
This is one trend that also knows no seasonal barriers. In darker colours and heavier fabrics like denim and leather, it's perfect for chilly weather too. Just add a cosy knit, scarf and a pair of heeled boots.
From floor length, tea-length, to short once paired with a crop top, tank top and/or blazer, instantly gives you a cool summer lady-like vibe. Below are some funky ways to style your voluminous skirt this season, be inspired!
