Skirts fall winter 2012-2013

The fashionable season of fall winter 2012 2013 is rich on bright unusual and even extravagant models of skirts.

On a podium as well as in a real life there are two versions for a woman to present herself :

1) to make her image bright and appreciable or

2) to designate dignity of her body but stay dull.

In the first case designers suggest to put on draperies and flounces, choose magnificent and intricate style, sated shades and unusual fabrics.

In the second case the choice can be made in favour of a straight style of a skirt of average length, dense jersey or woolen fabric, muffled dark colors of fall.

Designers have experimented with heavy and rough fabrics for skirts as well as with leather, fur, wool, jersey, serge, and brocade.

Skirts of a straight cut are made basically from jersey and light fabrics, which perfectly show silhouette and charmingly fit hips.

Warm version for a rainy fall and frosty winter – skirts from nap fabrics, leather, and short-haired fur. Styles of fur should be volumetric, magnificent, and wide, that emphasizes the surface of fabrics. For leather classical styles of straight cut are used, as well as trapeze and ‘pencil’-shape.

Trimmed by flounces skirts with a drapery, unprofitable pockets, ruffs, and folds are supposed to be very actual this season.

A real favorite of the season has become “peplum” skirt or a style with basque (a flounce from a waist) which perfectly simulates magnificent in the field of hips silhouette that emphasizes heavy and dense fabrics, from which they made of. Not everyone is supposed to wear such skirt as it makes you visually bigger.
