The “circle” skirt (also known as the “poodle” or full midi skirt), was made popular by singer/actress turned designer, Juli Lynn Charlotte in the late 1940’s. I have noticed that it has been a reoccurring trend in the last couple of years and is one that will continue this season. It’s a length that most women can wear because it is not too long and not too short. It also has an A-line cut that gives you great comfort and ease as you wear it.
I love these previously worn styles from celebrities Jessica Alba, Taylor Swift, Anne Hathaway, Kourtney Kardashian and our modern day pin up girl who always reps the style, Dita Von Teese. The style can be worn both dressed up or down and will also carry you through those transitional season’s. I will say if you are short and petite, this style will not work for you. Instead try a shorter version like the “skater” skirt.
As for me, the verdict is still out. I am still debating if this is a trend I will follow. I think I could rock it with a fun color or funky cross print, however let’s be real, I probably wouldn’t get a lot of wear out of it unless I got it in black. Plus, who knows when the trend will end? Anywhoo, don’t let me stop you. Here are a few suggestion to help you find your perfect look!
