Trend Watch: Tiered Skirts
The tiered skirt is back!
Though this may sound somewhat scary, you will be pleasantly surprised with the gorgeous modern take that designers have come up with this summer.
We are especially lusting after the abundance of above-the-knee length skirts with layers of tiered ruffles, as seen on the spring runways of Luella, Zac Posen, and Givenchy.
This is the trend that almost everyone can get away with.
Whether you pick a skirt with full and flouncy ruffles or one with a few flat tiers, keep in mind that this item is seriously feminine. The huge variety of tiered designs means that those of you who are lacking in the hip department can gain some sexy hips and those of you that are more than blessed will be able to get some hip skimming designs. That said, it’s best to balance the sweetness of the tiered skirt with something sleek or structured fora modern look.
