The Skater Skirt is a trend that isn’t going anywhere. I admit to not being the most trendy girl on the block, but I actually really like skater skirts. When styled correctly, they can look really cute on most figures. There’s no denying that this style looks quite young though, which is why styling is super important! Personally, since skater skirts tend to be on the shorter side, I feel most comfortable wearing this style of skirt with a pair of opaque black tights. I’m not keen on being the unwilling participant in a wardrobe malfunction! For taller gals who look at this short skirt length and think “no freaking way,” Topshop has a few circle skirts that are designated as being “tall.” There are also many petite options on the market.
