As with many other so-called 'new' fashion trends skater dresses are not actually new at all, Fashion recycles itself through each decade and in fact those fitted waists and circle skirts take us back to the 80.
Skater dresses are currently being sold in almost every high street store in the UK, coming in all the colours of the rainbow with typical high necks, cap sleeves and falling on the average girl at around mid-thigh. Long sleeved versions have also been cropping up, perhaps because they are a little more practical for daywear with the colder temperatures we face in this country. The skater dress as stated previously is normally mini-length, but fear not! If you prefer your hemlines just a little longer, the current trend for midi skirts means that it is possible to track down similar shaped dresses in a longer length.
The joys of the skater dress are many. It is possibly one of the few dresses that suits every body shape, if you are larger on the rear the flared skirt can slyly disguise this or if you are straight up and down the cinched in waist can give your body some much needed curves. From just this item of clothing there are so many outfits you could produce, these are the kind of dresses that you can just add any pair of shoes to be that heels or flats, transferring the look from day to night and any accessories that when paired with a simple skater dress make the whole outfit stop being OTT.
