Sound the trumpets for this new trend! Now you may be wondering, what exactly is a trumpet skirt? Think pencil skirt with some added flare at the bottom, making it a little more flirty and fun and not so straight-laced and all-business. Now don’t worry, I’m not completely washing my hands of all things fall and winter 2011 just yet (yeah right!); rather, I am taking a few notable spring 2012 trends presented during Fashion Week and giving you guys some advance notice about them now so you can know what to expect when the time comes.
I must say, I really love this style of skirt. It almost makes me want to put one on and do a salsa dance or something (well, sort of). They’re high-waisted, fitted, and tend to bump out right at the thighs, giving you a great shape. Some are adorned with pleats while others with ruffles and some are perfect for transitioning from day to evening. It’s something different and it is a bit early to be thinking about skirts, but keep it on the back burner for when the season comes about.
