Fashion Trend: Long skirts

There’s something very vintage about a floor length skirt that really makes an impact. Although not so city friendly due to the risk of the hem dragging on the ground, the long skirt is making a comeback on Fall 2010 runways. Perfect for an elegant night out, or pretty for a picnic at tea-length, skirt lengths are going from mini to major. Silky bias, full skirts in cotton or beaded in chiffon prove that the long skirt is a statement maker that will compliment any girls figure.

Hermes pairs a leather jacket, long printed, skirt, grey booties, scarf and hat together for a winter look that resembles looks from the past (right).

A sexy sweater and long, cascading skirt are paired with a matching white overcoat for the ultimate American glamour girl at Michael Kors (left). Eveningwear gets modernized – a gorgeous chiffon, beaded skirt with a double breasted day jacket is a fabulous contrast at Philosophy (right).

Casual gowns? A ripped up, patchwork gown with a severe slit is paired with a hoodie jacket at Jean Paul Gaultier (left).  A velvet top and a yellow, printed, circle skirt are vintage-esque chic at Fendi (right).

So get out those high-heeled boots and throw those mini skirts to the back of the closet. It’s time to take things to a new length.
