Origin of Circle SkirtCircle skirt was a creation of the actress turned designer Juli Lynne Charlot in 1947. Juli Lynne was a young woman who wanted to look fashionable but did not have enough money to buy new clothes. So on Christmas she decided to make a skirt for herself. Since she did not know how to sew so she bought felt fabric and made a skirt out of it. That skirt remains to be a staple of our wardrobe. All praises for the lady who liked to make strong statements through her clothes.
In 1950 the Circle skirt made its way in to the mainstream fashion. Circle skirts were made popular by diva’s like Marilyn Monroe, Katherine Hepburn and Jane Mansfield. The appeal of the circle skirt soon became famous amongst teenagers as well. Learning about the history and background of the prevailing trends really fascinate me. I wish I could travel back in time and witness the most fashionable moments of the past myself. Since that is not possible I try to live it up through this blog.
Where & How to Wear
I am on a constant urge to seek out adventures of my own. So DIY projects work wonders for me. One crisp afternoon when I laid my eyes on this peacock print fabric I just knew I had to have it. I decided to go with the circle skirt because it gives a fabulous flow. To celebrate the last few days of autumn I wore this skirt with a pale yellow scoop neck top. I accessorized the whole look with a turquoise fine arts necklace from Pree Brulee, golden bangles and Mary-jane pumps. This fine arts necklace was also featured on Gossip Girl season 6, as Lily was spotted wearing it. My Mary-jane pumps are so versatile they help me in highlighting almost all of my outfits.
