Trend Alert – The Wrap Skirt

I have grown a tad tired of the usual pencil skirt/skater skirt rotation, so I am pretty excited about the latest shape to hit the trend circuit: the wrap skirt. This is the key to any perfect outfit.It wraps comfortably around your hips, sarong-style, and leaves you ready for dancing the night away.

Wrap it, tie it, tuck it — however you pull it off, 2016 is all about the obi. Forget your skinny leather belts or your traditional buckled styles, the obi is feminine, minimal, and actually easy to pull off.

These skirts are a wrapper’s delight. Go day-to-day in jersey a wrap around or tie up in sequins and poppin’ prints for added awesomeness. Mix up your workwear in this midi-skirt. Wrap style and side-tie gives a flattering silhouette. Complete the look with a pair of high heeled ghillies.

So how do you try the look out for yourself? I have broken down some different ways to test the waters Just read on, and get inspired to try out this season’s new trend.


  1. I love wrap skirts and think it’s awesome these are becoming popular. I’ve been making nerdy wrap skirts for several years now and love to see the reactions of people when I wear them!


  2. Afternoon Sheila!
    I am enjoying visiting your beautiful and informative space today. Love it!
    Now although skinny jeans and leggings have a special place in my heart, I love a well-designed skirt, short or long, that feels good on me! So thank you for posting and informing us about this new trend. I will be sharing pictures of a few skirts I love very soon, so I do hope to visit again.
