Trend 2012: The Skater Dress

Although London hosted the 2012 Summer Olympic Games (still a couple of years before we watch ice arabesques and flawless triple axles in awe), the ice skating uniform became a popular shape for dresses. It’s also known as the “fit and flare” style because the top is tight until the waist, then the attached skirt swings out in a wide A shape. In velvet (see the pink one below) the look is great for New Year’s. These are my picks:
