Structured Skirts and Spring’s Ladylike New Look

Spring 2013: Structured Skirt Trend

This season had so many bold things to say, not least of which was the structured skirt trend. Call it a rehash of Dior's New Look. Call it a modern twist on a classic silhouette. A resurgence of appreciation for that unique female form, the one that goes in at the waist and out at the hips, a rarity in today's modern world, was alive and well on the spring runways. Fit and flare skirts, heavy on the flare, have been dancing in my head since September, when spring's shows sprung. I can't wait to add a few of 2013's "new look" pieces to my wardrobe. Vive la difference!
