Part retro, all glamour — full-skirted dresses are taking over the red carpet on some of our favorite celebrities. Style stars like Eva Mendes, Ginnifer Goodwin, and Chloe Moretz are embracing the feminine fit and flare shape in every form. From the red-carpet-ready versions, like Miss Mendes's Honor frock to the pared-down and pretty for everyday, the trend is one we're particularly fond of for Spring — trust us, nothing looks more classically ladylike than a full-skirted dress, bare legs, and sweet heels to tie it all together. The proof is in this batch of trendsetters, showing off the silhouette for every occasion. Click through to see how they're outfitting a bevvy of darling frocks — then shop our editors' picks to channel the look for yourself.
>> There's something to be said about the saying "less is more," and Spring's fervor for full skirts has us on board. Designers like Vena Cava, Marc by Marc Jacobs, and Proenza Schouler showed modest, lady-like hemlines for Spring, and we can't wait to start wearing the trend ourselves. We're especially into Vena Cava's pairing with chunky flatforms and a crop top, left, and Marc by Marc Jacobs's classic approach. Stock up on some full skirts now with our freshly culled picks from Jason Wu, Anthropologie, Carolina Herrera, and Urban Outfitters.
We recently reported that full skirts are in and a Fab reader shows us how to work the trend. Maxinetje is fabulously full skirted! I love the black and white combo as it's very polished and crisp; perfect for work. Throw on some red pumps and she's ready for play!
Here's what she's wearing:
- Top: Benetton
- Skirt: Zara
- Shoes: H&M
- Necklace: H&M
- Bracelet: 'Dodo' by Pomellato
- Ring: Swarovski
- Watch: Guess
Congrats to Maxinetje!
