Why the Full Skirt Was a Fashion Week Star

Some of Fashion Week's biggest trends don't happen on the runway. Between shows in New York, this season's street style set spawned a pretty major trend in their ladylike skirts. With our favourite editors — even our own team embraced the look with this Zara skirt — and insiders taking the full skirt for a spin, it quickly became the star on the street, and it's not hard to see why. The feminine silhouette was built to flatter by hugging the tiniest part of your waist. And, if you fear that this shape might just be too girlie for you, a few of these NYFW standouts might beg to differ. They styled theirs with t-shirts, leather jackets, killer heels — and yes, crop tops.
