Inspiration for the Yasmeen Skirt

Sewing Tidbits

Hello,

The Yasmeen skirt was born from our desire to have in our closets a statement skirt with the over the top feel of the 90's runway shows. Its design lines celebrates women's curves in a way that we hope is reminiscent of the King of Cling, late Azzedine Alaïa. In this post, we will be sharing some ready-to-wear inspiration to help you select your fabric and style your finished skirt!

Shining with Yasmeen

While the skirt has definitely a special occasion feel to it, your choice of fabric and styling can transform it completely. For a very dressed up version of Yasmeen, choose a fabric with a sheen to it. The drape will dramatically affect bottom of the skirt looks. In a taffeta the flared bottom will tend to stay out and give a very formal look, while in a more fluid fabric such as silk, the volume will only appear with movement.

Casual Yasmeen skirts

There are also plenty of ways to make your skirt more casual. In the winter you can try a wool version, to be worn with a chunky sweater, or a leather jacket. In warmer weather, a linen Yasmeen worn will flat sandals will take you easily from the beach to a nice dinner out with a chic resort look.

Shorter Yasmeen skirts

Finally, you also have the option of playing with the length. You could experiment with an ankle grazing skirt in an airy fabric for fluttered hem effect. The modern proportion will look very chic whether you pair it with heels or with sneakers for a cool yet polished feel!
