Fashion, Outfit of the Day

Mermaid Skirt

Mermaid, trumpet, fit and flare, they are all very similar silhouettes. Over the past five years these shapes have become the go-to choice for brides of all shapes and sizes. Go figure as they are extremely figure flattering! I am happy to report this silhouette has become a mainstream favorite and as a result is popping up across the fashion industry. The last time I wore a mermaid skirt was for a black tie affair. I was stoked to find this knit and less formal version.

The only thing better than a maxi skirt is a mermaid maxi skirt! I could hardly contain my excitement when I laid eyes on this stunner at Current Clothing! Whether you are a bride-to-be, festival junkie, or simply chic, this maxi skirt deserves a special spot in your closet. The princess seams guarantee you a swoon-worthy fit, while the subtle chevron print ups its versatility. With the right additions, this skirt can easily go from noon to five. For a daytime affair, pair this beauty with a cropped off-the-shoulder top, a jean jacket, and a side braid.

With a cocktail party in Las Vegas coming up, I chose the latter, and styled this mermaid skirt for the evening. To compliment the shapely lower half, I paired it with a feminine structured top. Although a classic black or white would have worked, I took advantage of the opportunity to add a pop of color by incorporating this magenta peplum top into the mix. I know I always say to keep the accessories to a minimum when you are working with a statement piece, but when it comes to Vegas, the bigger the better! That is why I chosen a very gaudy pearl necklace.

      Thank you Ashley! I LOVE fit and flare bottoms but they are a little hard to find unless you’re shopping for formal wear.

      Thanks Nicole! I find that many dresses and formal gowns come in the mermaid shape but not many garments for everyday wear. I was stoked when I found this one. Thank you for stopping by.
