Full Skirts Fall 2012

Skirting the Issue: Fall's Fullest, Flirtiest Ones to Shop

We love our miniskirts year-round, we've loved our maxiskirts all Summer long, and right now? We've got a sweet spot for Fall's full-skirt silhouette. Whether midi or mini length, this bigger shape and willowy movement can both slim and flatter your shape. Showing off the full skirt's ability to cinch the waist, prove demure, and act as a slick autumnal styling piece is a cool lineup of designers that include Christian Dior, Carven, J.Crew, Jil Sander, and Marc Jacobs. Sure, the proof can be found in spades on the runway, but the number one reason why we're loving this season's voluminous skirt is its versatility. For work, it offers up a refreshed take on the svelte pencil skirt, and for after hours, it's the perfect piece to draw attention to a slim waist and a flash of leg. All you need is a silky blouse, stacked loafers, and a cozy sweater for layering. Ready? Shop our editors' Fall-minded full skirt favorites below.
