Skater party dresses are a chic necessity

Fashion is constantly reinventing itself. Fashion trends draw inspiration from the clothes that are worn daily and these are then transformed by tweaking the style, into glamorous and chic party dresses. Take skater dresses for example.
What are they, do you know? In recent fashion history, this term seems to be jumping out at us from magazines and fashion sites and it is widely popular with the ladies who love to look chic. And it is fast flying off the racks because not only does it look great and stylish, but it is also extremely flattering for a larger figure – skater party dresses are not the sole prerogative of the slim ladies.
A skater dress is essentially a sleeker cousin of the A-line dress. Just how an A-line dress flatters the figure by billowing out from waist down, skater dresses hug the body till the bust line and then start to expand out into a balloon-esque skirt which does not flare out too much, but enough to cover the extra rolls of fat and hide the muffing tops. The silhouette is therefore a lot sleeker, narrow at the top and gently flaring out till the knees. They get their name – skater dresses – because skaters wear shorter versions of this dress when they are performing. Skater skirts are also very popular and if you own one, you can mix and match them with tops to create your own skater dress silhouette.
Skater dresses can be accessorized with a thin belt with a girly bow right below the bust line. Usually, they are best worn sleeveless as this accentuates and enhances the figure very well. Depending on the length of the dress it can easily be worn to work with a chic and smart jacket or shrug if you have a party in the evening and do not want to go back home and change. Wear low heeled pumps, a smart short jacket and carry a statement clutch bag. Accessorise with a large cocktail ring and pretty earrings and this will not look out of place at work. Once done, simply slip off the jacket and apply some party-worthy makeup and you are set.
Celebs who flaunt the skater party dress to their advantage are Rihanna, Katie Holmes and the younger brigade like Katy Perry and Emma Watson. They are a favourite summer staple as well seeing that they are feminine and flirty as well as comfortable. They come in an array of fabrics with different hemlines and necklines and they work best for the hotter climate. They are extremely versatile as well as if it is cold outside then you can easily pull on a pair of sheer tights to make a chic style statement.
The skater dress is perfect for a night out at the club, think leather or pop colors with contrasting bandeaux necklines, the ideal choice for a romantic dinner out – think lace or a skater LBD and perfect for a brunch party when accessorized with a belt. If you do not have one in your wardrobe already, it is time for you to go out and buy one right now!
