The new way to do A-line, if you don’t have a skater dress in your wardrobe, you’re a little late to the party. They’re cute, short, and totally on trend this Summer because of the fit-and-flare silhouette that manages to flatter every body type.
Here are 10 reasons why we love the skater dress style:
- The fitted top helps accentuate your waist (the tiniest part of your body) while camouflaging your hips. It creates the illusion of an hourglass figure.
- The style has inherent femininity. The fuller skirt has volume and drama; it almost makes you want to do a little twirl like the figure skaters the dress shape is inspired by.
- You can opt for a fuller or trimmed down skirt based on whether you want to go all-out retro or channel a tailored A-line.
- You can find a skater dress for every occasion—prom, weddings, day dresses, cruise parties, sundowners, and even workwear. It’s all about the patterns and cuts with this one.
- Skater dresses can be taken from day to night by simply adding a jacket, a pair of heels, some statement accessories, or even a belt and bag.
- By playing with the neckline you can amp up or mellow down your bust area. Try something old school like a sweetheart neck for prom, a boat neck for cocktails, a high neck for work, a deep V for a pool party… you get the drift.
- Skater dresses let you show off some leg. Even if you’re conscious about your pins, just step into a pair of heels to elongate your legs, make them appear more toned, and rock that feminine silhouette like nobody’s business.
- A short skater dress can be worn as a tunic with some opaque tights if you wish to get creative.
- Celebrities like Rihanna, Ariana Grande, Beyoncé, and even Kate Middleton rocked the skater dress so hard, we can’t wait to do the same!
