So word has it on the streets that FULL (& I mean big) skirts are in for Spring ’14. I know that it’s a little early to start planning Spring’s outfits, but it always feels so good to be extra prepared, and we’ll be the trend setters among our peers and our worst enemies. The full skirt will make Spring ’14 a lot more breezy and forgiving for all of us ladies. The lady-like sillhoutte of the skirt will flatter our figure and save us in those days when we skip shaving. What I love about this skirt style is how comfortable it is to slip-on and wear (I don’t know about you, but I dread putting on my skinny jeans). Dress this style down with a denim jacket and glam it up for a night-out with tight, form-fitting tops.

P.s. I learned in my fashion course that the bigger space that your clothes acquire, the “bigger” you are. In other words, in the past royalty, and wealthy people used clothes as space-fillers to imply power, and dominance.

Sent this post to my granddaughter. She graduated from FIT.
I’m glad that this skirts are in. It’s perfect to cover my white legs and I can hide some chocolate-sins :o) Many thanks for a great selection :o)
Haha I agree. You’re welcome 🙂 Cheers!
This is the best news I’ve read all morning! Thank you so much for sharing 🙂 And, guess what? I find full skirts easier to sew. Time to break out the sewing machine … yay! I’ve got some special pieces of cloth I’ve been saving up – a blanket from Kenya Airlines which I was saving for something special, which will make a lovely unique piece; a stretch of metallic. Oh, are metallics still in? Hope so …
Sorry for the delayed response.. I am so glad you like roomy skirts, I love them too cause they’re so mobile and comfortable and actually there is a Spring trend called Holographic/Holography is basically consists of multiple metallic colors grouped next to each other. So, you’re right on trend!
Thank you! ooh, you’ve made my day, I had some metallics which didn’t see the light of day and now I feel I can get them out and start playing, creating something special 🙂 Very much appreciate you taking the time to reply.
Sure! No problem! Playing is fun and do send me your creations after you’re done=]
I promise that I will, IF my experimenting works out! 😉
it will =]!
Btw, I mean send me a picture haha I don’t want you to think like I’m a gold digger lol
That’s how I interpreted what you said! Don’t worry 🙂 Besides, any skirt I make for myself right now has to accommodate the extra kilos I put on while in hospital last year, so I doubt it would be much use to anyone else!
Haha you’re so funny. I am sure they’ll look great and making your own cloth is always special and makes us women feel extra proud wearing them. Good luck !
Glad you liked it!
I click my heels together and say, ” Spring is coming!” Thank you so much for sharing this. Hugs, Barbara
Its my favorite season too!!
