Fashion is fun, but sometimes not all of us want to sacrifice complete comfort for it. Sure, we will don high waisted skirts and other skirts with sometimes-uncomfortable waistbands for the sake of looking good. Sometimes, however, everyone wants a little break and breathing room. Want to look great without looking like your grandmother? Wear a wrap skirt!
A wrap skirt is a skirt that ties at the waist or hips. It does not have buttons, zippers, or any set fit that can sometimes feel uncomfortable especially if you gain weight. This type of skirt is generally of simple construction, and, when opened completely, often looks like a simple piece of cloth. The waist has two pieces of fabric that you can adjust and tie as tightly or loosely as you desire.
Who can wear a wrap skirt? Rejoice, ladies, the wrap skirt is for any body type! Tall, short, thin, average, plus sized, curvy, straight up and down; any body, so anybody can wear one! The adjustable waist is in particular perfect for super skinny girlies who often have trouble finding a skirt that actually stays put and doesn’t slide down.
Wrap skirts are also perfect for those of you who are carrying a little more then average weight. Because it is adjustable, you can tie it as loosely as you like. No more grimacing in pain every time you go to sit down despite the fact that the button waist skirt you are wearing is in your correct size. This garment is suitable for everyone.
That being said, wrap skirts come in all sorts of lengths and styles. From mini to maxi, printed or solid, these skirts seem to have no limit. Often, the wrap skirt is found in stores for the warmer months, when comfort and easy dressing often seems more desirable. However, there are winter versions too.
Casual or dressy? Well, wrap skirts come in all different levels of appropriateness. Many that you may come across may seem more casual. However, there are ones constructed of luxe fabrics, with detailing and elegant prints that work perfectly for more polished occasions.
For Spring/Summer 2012, Von Vonni has unveiled several wrap skirts. Von Vonni is a NYC based women’s apparel company. One of their beautiful wrap skirts is the Zenya wrap skirt. It reaches the ground, and comes in two different patterns: a delicate floral and a beach-reminiscent swirly stripe. True to its name, it ties at the waist. A slightly sheer material, this skirt is perfect for daytime wear or a more casual outdoor evening event.
Von Vonni also offers the Chloe silk wrap skirt. The Chloe skirt reaches the ankles. It has a tie waist, and is made of non-see through silk, with an elegant sheen and beautiful floral pattern. It comes in black and nude, and is quite lovely for a more sophisticated situation.
