5 Ways to Wear a Circle Skirt


The circle skirt is this season’s most versatile and flattering wardrobe staple. Named for their shape, which is cut like a big doughnut, circle skirts keep the fullness of the skirt at the hem rather than at the waist. The skirt, tight around your waist, flares out around your thighs, creating an hourglass shape on any body type. Sometimes called a skater skirt, this piece is comfortable and easily adaptable for every occasion and style.

Your entire summer wardrobe could be built around one of these striking skirts–like the Light Up My Life Skirt from Modcloth. A gorgeous black skirt is a great investment because you can wear it not only in the warm seasons but also in the fall and winter too! Here are 5 ways to wear a circle skirt:


Who says a skirt has to be feminine? Show off your inner rebel with a form-fitting crop top with a tantalizing metallic zipper closure. A bold color will help you stand out from the crowd.
