Trend Alert: The Fluted Skirt

Hey, guys! You all may have seen a shoutout in my last post to my newest obsession: fluted skirts! I have seen these more and more often on runways during NYFW and being featured on many of my favorite fashion blogs. It is the perfect addition to any girl's wardrobe because it can be dressed up for a fancy occasion or dressed down for a lunch with friends. I knew that I had to have it!

Like any other fashion savvy girl, I checked my favorite store (can you guess what it is?! :) to see if they carried their own version of this fabulous new trend. And of course, J.Crew hit the nail on the head...again! The key with these skirts is how fluid the seams make the body of the skirt. You don't want to have it tight on your hips and just poof out mid-thigh. Not a cute look!

While the J.Crew version is amazing, not all of us have the funds to fork over for a $100 skirt (because I need it for other things, like my Lindor addiction!! ;). Nevertheless, some other stores have come out with some really great options as well! So, without further ado, here are my favorite versions.

I am head over heels for this Banana Republic fluted skirt!!! It is very similar to J.Crew's in that the seams at the bottom blend flawlessly with skirt. The bottom is just the right amount of poofy! Plus, the vibrant pink color is the perfect attire for the upcoming warm spring weather. 

This ASOS flared skirt is also another fabulous option! The seams start a bit further up the skirt than those of the BR skirt, but I still love the poof it produces! I think the black color helps to keep this skirt from looking too juvenile as well. For you long-legged ladies out there, this skirt should most definitely your new best friend in the approaching spring/summer seasons!!

H&M gets top marks for this beautiful flared skirt! This skirt is different than the others in its structure; the others have a more defined poof at the bottom, while this one has more of a flow to it. I actually love this style too, and I love that already this trend has take more than one form. This skirt  can definitely be dressed up for a nicer occasion and still make the wearer appear professional!

Thanks so much for taking the time to read this blog post! I am really excited for this "trend" because I think it's classic enough that I can continue to incorporate it into my style even after it leaves the high fashion spotlight. Let me know what your take on this trend is in the comments below! Thanks so much for your support, and have a fabulous day!

  2. I really like these kind of skirts too, but I feel like these ones are a bit to short to ex wear for work. I feel like that about a lot of clothes on blogs. But I could def wear it for a day out and about.

    1. I agree; some of them can get a bit short! But, you can always buy a size up and get it altered, so you have the appropriate length for a work day.

  3. Totally on board with this trend. Good to know there are inexpensive options available!
