Calgary Fashion Jobs – Skater Skirts

As temperatures lower, we tend to get into the habit of layering multiple pieces and sometimes go a littler overboard, resulting in a more frumpy than trendy look. Who says you have to stash away those cute minis just to bear the cold? The skater skirt is inspired by figure skaters, whom themselves year round dash out onto the ice for performance in flared miniskirts with a tight waistline, creating a flirtatious and playful look. This elegant skirt is figure flattering for any body type, creating the illusion of a smaller waistline and slimmer hips. Versatile for a variety of pairing tops, the skater skirt is especially paired perfectly with those comfy oversized knits or when rocked with a ladylike blouse.

Shown on many catwalks for Fall/Winter 2012, from designers such as Stella McCartney to Victoria Beckham, this structured piece is a wardrobe essential, updating your closet with some modern sass. With our festive picks, it is guaranteed you’ll score that perfect 10 at the office Christmas party or date night out – no landed triple axel necessary.
