FW21: Key Skirts

Fresh Silhouettes and Joyful Must-Haves

Livetrend has tracked the most trending woven skirts of the FW21 shows. Generally declining as a product category, the number of features still counted 1091 outfits for the next season, representing 10% of product mix. With a taste for joyful and more eclectic styles, the mini-silhouette has swept over the skirt category with a total number of 336 mini skirts walking down the runways. The midi-length however, remains the leading skirt length with 717 styles on the catwalks. Regardless of the length, the A-line silhouette can be pointed out as a key silhouette, shown in 147 looks. A multitude of designers interpreted the A-line, whether cropped, midi or floor-length for FW21. 

While skirts are generally providing comfort and ease, contemporary and simplified streamlined styles are embracing new ideas on simplicity, purpose and a non-fuzz aesthetic. Similarly, the plissé and pleated styles, composing a total of 201 looks during the FW21 shows, are feeding into a more elevated and sophisticated aesthetic. However, they can be adjusted to younger consumers through experimental plays with length, print or asymmetry. Pleats also respond to the tactile needs that people are seeking for after a long touch-less and texture-less period and add movement. Another key-skirt that alludes to texture through its 3-dimensional characteristics is the full volume skirt (11% of skirt assortment). Not only does it embrace the trend for flamboyant styles and sheers, it is also flattering on a majority of body types.
