Summer 2012 Trend: Skater Dresses

Fountain of 30

June 19, 2012 • Fashion Blog, Trends

Here we have a re-trend. If you remember Dorothy Hamill or had her haircut then you are certainly familiar with the skater dress. It made a fashion reappearance in the 80’s. Think fitted bodice with a circle skirt and you have the idea. The length can vary although the mini (mid-thigh) version is more prevalent. Not to worry, if you are wary of a mini (I am) you can find a midi skirt length if you search. The beauty of the skater dress is that it is flattering on almost everyone and is simple to wear. You can chose a solid or a pattern and just add some stilettos and you are good to go. No ice skates needed. But we won’t tell anyone if you feel the need to twirl! Here are 10 skater dresses we adore now:
