This Vintage Style Is The Latest Look To Make A Comeback

The '50s called, it wants its skirt back.

If you've been surfing Pinterest lately, you may have noticed one item in particular all over your feed: the A-line midi skirt. No longer reserved for '50s housewives, Pink Ladies costumes at costume parties and Taylor Swift circa 2012, this classic silhouette is making a major comeback.

And is it really any surprise? So far, 2017 has been a year of throwbacks: from '70s-style aviator readers and puff sleeves from the '80s and '00s denim miniskirts, this year has been a constant wave of nostalgia. With this latest trend, however, it may be your grandma's closet you're raiding rather than your mother's. 

Back in full form – literally – these long, voluminous skirts are perfectly suited to all body shapes and are ideal for the slow transition into summer. Not only will they keep your legs warm on those especially breezy nights but they'll look ultra chic paired with anything from a simple tube top to a statement blouse. Adopt a feminine look by pairing your skirt with a lace trim cami and mules, or go casual with a pair of cute patterned sneakers.

Whether you prefer to rock the look with pleats, tulle or even go the whole-hog with a crinoline, we guarantee you'll be turning heads on the sidewalk.
