From our friends at thefind.com:
The next winter Olympics may still be a full year away, but while we wait, we can get ready for the festivities by reaping the benefits of the latest athletic-inspired trend – skater dresses! Inspired by the sporty-feminine silhouette of an ice skater uniform, the skater dress is defined by its fitted bodice, flouncy skirt, and how-high-can-you-go hemline, which make this trend flirty, feminine, fun, and easy to wear. From rocker-chic faux leather and winter-friendly sweater dresses to spring-ready prints, this trend is transition-friendly enough to work for multiple seasons, day-to-night occasions, and a variety personal styles depending on your choice of accessories. Plus, if you were like me and dressed up as Nancy Kerrigan for Halloween in 1st grade (guilty!), this trend is your second chance at perfecting the look, embarrassment-free!
