What is a skater dress actually?
A skater dress is a dress with a tight upper body and a flared skirt. The name comes from the eighties when designers got inspired by skate clothing. Usually you see the shorter versions, but I prefer my skater dress slightly longer. I must appologize for the photos. And also for those frome next Tuesday. It froze a few degrees, and something was not set up properly with the camera. Gerben was checking it very calmly and I was dying of the cold. So then I said, quitte irritated, make the damn pictures please! Because of the poor lighting you don’t see my goosebumps!
It’s time for a new dress!
I noticed that my closet with skirts was pretty stuffed, and the one with the dresses wasn’t, so it was time to buy some dresses! Just kidding. But I havn’t bought a dress yet this season, so I shopped for dresses! Last week my girlfriend Celina and I were invited to attend a fashion show and shopping evening at the shop of a former colleague. Of course we went out for diner before! It’s now the time to buy party dresses and they showed many during the fashionshow. I bought a bodycon dress with a leather bolero. I will show you soon. First I’ll show you my skater dress. I have always worn pencil skirts and bodycon dresses, and all of a sudden I see a lot of wide skirts in my closet. But just one wider dress. This one, the print of the skater dress reminded me of this one. And I always love to wear dresses especially for the holidays. So my mind was fixed on skater dresses. Actually, if I am honest, I think this dress isn’t working for me. I prefer the lenght a bit longer, on the knee not above. But I think the design of the dress was so nice that I choose it anyway. And I love the collar on the dress. It adds a bit more. I don’t like a round neck and a V-neck is so hard to find. I never understood that why it is so hard to find a good V-neck dress, many women want a V-neck.
How to style a skater dress?
Well…not! Haha, you know I am a plain Jane. I like things simple. Just some leather boots with a small heel and some bracelets in the colore of the dress. But when I want to style it more casual then I would wear it with the boots that I refered to and wear it with a grog knitted cardigan. And add a big brooche on the cardigan.
