Skirts were found again in the center of the fashion world. In the new warm season, fashion designers gave this item yet a more attention, offering us access to a tremendous diversity of various patterns, colors, styles, textures, prints and fabrics. Let’s see what skirts are in style in the new spring-summer 2016 season.
The trumpet skirt
Mermaid or trumpet skirts have become incredibly popular in recent fashion seasons. These sophisticated skirts are distinguished by the fact that they sit perfectly on the female thighs and the bottom flares discreet. The trumpet skirt is ideal for a festive evening. In such attire you can conquer the hearts of all men, as evidenced by the fashion shows coming from Alessandra Rich, Dion Lee, House of Holland, Oscar de la Renta, Rochas, Saloni, Erdem. As we can see, on the sewing of such “mermaid tails” can be used various fabrics, textures and lengths.
On par with midi length, a great popularity will also have the renowned mini skirts. Designers’ favorites proved to be not only classic skirts above knee, such as the ones from Aquilano, Christopher Raeburn, Chanel, Antonio Berardi, Costume National, Coach, Courreges, but true belt-skirts, the length of which barely cover the female buttocks (Versace, Paco Rabanne, Emanuel Ungaro, Saint Laurent Ermanno Scervino, Felder Felder, Dolce & Gabbana, Anna Sui). A quite challenging option for young fashionistas!
Wrap skirts Spring-Summer 2016
Wrap skirts are enjoying an unprecedented popularity, which can be easily explained by the fact that such model fits all fashionistas without exception. For example, ladies with some extra pounds must pay attention to knee length wrap skirt and which fit in the waist area. The ladies with an inverted triangle body shape may opt for wrap skirts that flare slightly in the hem area, while representatives of a rectangle-shaped body, must choose designs with low waist. In addition, modern designers strive each season to make a special note on this model. Someone launched wrap skirts made of reptile leather imitation, others decorated their creations with fringes, while the rest focused on original prints.

And again in great demand are the loose flared fit designs and here we can list the following types of skirts: A-line skirts, bell skirts, skirts in new look style, flared skirts, tulip, mullet. And the more fluffy is the chosen skirt, the more gussets will be created and the more the better. For the purpose to be reached at 100%, designers used light fabrics like tulle, several layers of chiffon, mesh, etc. Examples of such creations can be seen at Giorgio Armani, Michael Kors, Dolce & Gabbana, Tadashi Shoji, Vivienne Westwood Red Label, Chanel, Banana Republic, Barbara Tfank, Simone Rocha, Manish Arora, Parsons MFA, Etro, Issey Miyake, Reem Acra, Ralph Lauren, Temperley London, Zimmerman, Andrew Gn, Alexis Mabill, Carolina Herrera, Delpozo.
The asymmetric hem is another trend of the season. It seems that asymmetry does not want to cede its leadership positions and it should not as such garment look original and beautiful. A special place in the new season spring-summer 2016 have the so-called “mullet” skirts.

Layering is again the top choice which means that at skirts sewing can and should be used more fabrics, even with different texture. Designers perfectly combine leather with chiffon, knit with fur, tulle with denim, etc. (Valentino, ADEAM, Christopher Kane, Adam Selman, Leonard, Holly Fulton, Emanuel Ungaro).
