History of women's skirts

The history of women’s skirts is an interesting one. Pre-1920’s, long skirts were every self-respecting woman’s go-to. Because fabric was so expensive in those days, it was believed that the longer the skirt, the wealthier its wearer. Long skirts were also a matter of preserving a woman’s modesty; god forbid anyone caught a glimpse of those ankles! Each decade since has seen either a rise or fall in women’s skirt hemlines, dependent on social and economic stability and popular culture. The 1950s popularised flared-out, mid-length women’s skirts; the 60s gave way to the super controversial miniskirt; and the 70s favoured floor-length, disco dancing numbers.

Women's skirts in the 21st century

Today, there really are no rules when it comes to women’s skirts. The 21st century has opened up a world of fashion independence, and while styles may ebb and flow with each changing season, women’s skirts, in all of their many forms, are a perennial favourite. From women in short skirts, to flowing, floor-length maxi skirts and everything in between, the world is your oyster. If you often find yourself storing away your skirts come winter, think again! Skirts can be just as wearable throughout the cooler months as they are in spring and summer. Pair your favourite women’s skirt with a pair of tights or knee high boots, and you’ve got one stylish weatherproof outfit sorted.
