My fascination for skirts is renewed every season as skirts remain an all time favorite item of clothing worldwide, closely trailing behind dresses in popularity. Interestingly, skirts have been around since the evolution of mankind. The rectangular piece of animal skin, leaves interwoven together and the earliest form of fabric – loosely woven tartans; all used to be wrapped around the waist and were the initial basic form of skirts.

If you thought skirts were only meant for the women, think again!

Kilts, the traditional wear of the Scottish is for Men, Indians have a version of the skirt – the good old desi Lungis, wrap around skirts are worn by the Indonesian men. However, skirts are predominantly a Women’s clothing item.

Indians have a long tradition with skirts too. The South Indian traditional dress worn by the women “Mundu Neriyathum” or a long skirt “ Mundu” worn with a blouse and a long stole ‘Neriyathum’, North and western Indian traditional dress of a ‘Ghaghara’  or ‘lehenga’  and teamed with ‘choli’ or a tight fitting blouse are all different forms of long skirts.

The skirts have evolved over time period and how! You could say that the popularity of skirts can be attributed to its versatility – you could wear a skirt to a strictly formal occasion such as a business sit down dinner, a semi formal occasion such as a party to celebrate your contribution to the company or even to a casual movie and pub night out with your girlfriends. The best part about skirts is that you could look different every single day, wearing the same skirt, if you just alter the top and accessories you wear it with.

I simply adore the knife pleated and skort models. The same goes for A-Line, paneled and wrap skirts.
Preferentially in black, but I choose other options according to the fabric and how I look wearing these models. :)

If I had the money to waste, I'd buy myself a complete outfit and wear it proudly.  :lol: :madra:  Just to be counter-culture.
