As you can probably tell, I love summer trends! One article of clothing that I’ve been wearing a lot of lately is… ta da! The bandage skirt.
They can be a little intimidating. I mean, the reason they’re called bandage skirts is because they wrap around you like a bandage -and yes, that means they can be very tight! But don’t let that scare you, I promise that they can look good on everyone.
The first step is finding the right skirt for you, determined by the fit, color, and pattern.
… you might want try a longer bandage skirt, like this one from BCBG. Look for cuts just above the knee for the most flattering fit. This look is dressy enough to wear to work but sexy enough to wear for cocktails afterwards. Diane von Furstenberg designed this brilliant skirt, but if you’re looking for something a little playful, I’m loving the stripes on this BCBG one.
… you’ll love this embroidered tier skirt by Monrow. This skirt is fun, flirty, and right on trend. Geometric shapes are hot, and this cute skirt has little triangles embroidered on each tier! This is perfect for summer – wear it to the pool over your bikini or out on the town with your girlfriends.
… this striped knit skirt from BCBG will do it for you. It has two secret powers: stripes and ruching, both of which are perfect for disguising any imperfections and making your shape look flawless! This one by Alexander Wang is even a little longer.
…you should try this feminine skalloped skirt from Forever 21.The scalloped hem is flirty and the royal blue hue is classy. Perfect for a date night. To keep it feminine, look for lace or crochet like this BB Dakota skirt. Adorable!
The great thing about the bandage skirt is that it can be worn all year long with the right top and the right accessories.. even in the cooler months!
