Speaking of arctic blasts (from the past) the 22nd Winter Olympics will be kicking off from Sochi, Russia in a mere month. So, how coincidental (or is it?) that skater skirts have made a bigger comeback than Nancy Kerrigan after that whole Tonya Harding incident. Show me a girl who didn’t dream of gliding on ice like Kristi Yamaguchi or long to be a spandex clad Tara Lipinksi and I’ll show you a girl who wasn’t old enough to remember the ’94 Olympics. (Side note: I just did the math on that and it’s frightening). Anyhow, reminiscent of Michelle Kwan and Oksana Baiul, the skater skirt is the perfect skirt to skate right through winter. Worn with slightly less maribou and maybe equal parts sequins and this wardrobe reboot is just begging to be twirled in. Not to mention it would most certainly look sensational with a crop top.
