In recent times, giving to my clients advices on the selection of clothing, I began to notice that I often advise to stay on the choice of bell skirt or bubble skirt. So I thought is better to do a separate post on this topic, because these skirts simply should take a special place in the wardrobe of every girl. Why, I'll explain below.
For several seasons silhouettes Bell and Bubble (the full skirts) are among the most popular on the runways. They all can be called several different names, but that's because sometimes is difficult to determine what the cut was created - bell skirt, a latern skirt, a full skirt, a A-line skirt, a skater skirt? A lot of cuts can be mixed in one model and is difficult to correctly name all of them. But I decided to go with the most frequently used names, so we can easier to understand each other.
Modern bell and bubble skirts are made from a fabric with sufficient density to keep the form of a bud, a cone, a bubble, a lantern or a bell. "Bubble" may be short and a hemline should be bended inside to create the Bubble shape. There are variations that exactly replicate the shape of a bubble, looking like a foam. Some of them mostly look like a bud of flower. = ) Bell skirt like any bell can also have different shapes. This may be a form of a wine glass ( here it becomes to look more like a bubble skirt ), or the usual cone (like a full skirt or A-line skirt). This may be straight cut, or pleating silhouette. Let's see what the designers have offered us in 2014.
What I love bell skirts and bubble skirts, it's because of the fact that they are equally necessary and for those who have large hips, and those who can not boast curves and have flat bottom. Such skirts will add volume to the bottom for ones, while for others skirts will help to hide the excess volume. The main thing in creating proper outfit, as we know, is to balance the look. If you have high growth, choose the knee length of the skirt or lower, and if you are short, then on the contrary, prefer short silhouettes over the knee. However, if you are short in stature and possess extra weight, you had better give up the bell and bubble silhouettes and turn to more straight vertical forms to make the silhouette visually slimmer and taller.
If you have a big belly, you should give up the tight waist styles. Also, do not emphasize the waistline with highly visible belts.
Because these styles are versatile enough, top, which will be worn with a skirt, should depend on the total style of the look. These can be T-shirts, blouses, blazers, jackets and cardigans. The main thing they should match the selected style and color, as well as with the features of your body shape - do not wear tight-fitting top, then your bottom will look much more bigger. However, the clothing with strict cut and unadorned will hide large shapes of your shoulders or breast. Ballet flats and high heeled shoes are absolutely suited with bell and bubble skirts. Daring and skillful girls can experiment with sport style shoes. I would not personally advise you to wear boots and tom boy style ancle boots with these skirts, but if you have the gift to create harmonious looks even with incompatible clothes - feel free to experiment! Let's look at how street fashionistas combine bubble and bell skirts.
And finally, I have prepared for you a gallery of models of skirts that can be seen on the shelves of stores. Just take a look, how many beautiful pieces! ♥
