How to Style a 50s Style Circle Skirt


Whether you already own a 50s style circle skirt or not, this classic style is a wardrobe essential for any vintage fashion fan. Flattering, comfortable and modest and available in a variety of fabrics, colours and prints there are so many ways you can wear this timeless cut.


Your options for styling a 50s style circle skirt will vary depending on whether you’ve opted for a print or a block colour. So, here’s some Tiger Milly styling tips for your next circle skirt based outfit.


Patterned 50s circle skirts are usually best teamed with a plain or simple top. Pick out an accent colour from the print and that will act as inspiration for your colour palette options. For a block coloured skirt, your options are broader. Embrace the colour blocking trend by picking a complimentary or contrasting colour to your skirt, keep it simple with monochrome or be bold with a print.


For a more casual look a circle skirt looks great with a tucked in t-shirt, statement tights and ballet pumps or boots. Polish the look with a fitted shirt or blouse and a pair of heels. This statement skirt style really is versatile and the ideal day-to-night base for an outfit.


Want to give your look a boost? Add fullness and movement to a circle skirt by adding a petticoat, loose the petticoat for a classic, easy to wear shape that suits every shape. For an authentic 1950s pin-up look, add a waist belt to enhance your natural curves whilst adding a splash of colour.
