In true feminine fashion don a delicately demure full skirt for full sophistication. Longer hemlines and looser fits ring true to the emergence of this 50s nostalgic staple. Most recently traced to the runways of Louis Vuitton, Prada and Dolce & Gabbana, the full skirt adds further retro appeal with quirky prints and playful patterns. Hiding a multitude of sins and enhancing womanly curves, the full skirt is a simple way to display a modest silhouette and create that hourglass figure you desire. Pulling off this trend and slipping into spring’s fervor for full skirts is a matter of proportions. Fuller figures should opt for an A-line skirt with less volume to avoid appearing wider and petite women should choose a hemline at or above the knee for longer looking legs. Embrace the return to ladylike refinement!
