As I’ve been browsing online shops such as ASOS, LuLus, and Topshop, a particular style of dress has been catching my eye lately. I’ve been seeing skater dresses everywhere right now! This look is inspired by the mini, flirty, dresses worn by figure skaters and I just cannot seem to get enough of this style. During the spring semester, I spotted this look on my college campus, from the library to Greek life formals.
This style is not just found in dress form, however. You can also find skater skirts (I recently purchased two!). These skirts look amazing when paired with a bustier top or long-sleeved blouse, as Rihanna demonstrates below. When worn with heels, skater skirts and dresses can make your legs look never-ending.
I wore a bright blue skater dress for Mother’s Day and received so many compliments. What I love about this style is that it is so versatile; you can wear a skater dress/ skirt to almost any event, day or night. I cannot wait to find endless skater-look possibilities this summer. Whether it's to work or a night out on the town, I am bound to be seen emulating this flirty style of figure skaters.
