Do you all remember back in 1987 when the People’s princess, Princess Diane, wore a double-breasted blazer over a bubble hem gown in Cannes? That was an iconic moment in fashion history. We all agree that Princess Diane was a fashion icon and whatever she wore was a subtle approval from her that we all should follow suit. Well, that’s what we are here to do today.
Bubble skirts have been around for the longest time, and despite being an old fashion item, it hasn’t gone out of style. Instead, it has evolved, and we are always here to show you how to style them. Here are ten different types of bubble skirts you should try today.
Bubble skirt: Outfits & Ideas
1. Bubble hem skirt
Bubble hem skirts are skirts with hems tucked in at intervals that create a balloon-like shape. This style has been around since the 80s, and we are glad they are making a comeback. This skirt is playful and fun and usually comes in bright colors that emphasize this outfit’s fit for casual outings. However, a bubble skirt paired with a short jacket and heels could also serve as work clothes or probably for a not-so-formal business meeting.
2. Bubble skirt 80s
The 80s is when fashion caught the world’s attention. Designers were finally granted an audience, and the world saw and accepted their talent. So we were thrilled that not only did they create gorgeous and exotic clothing, but they also made fun clothes we could wear when we didn’t feel like stressing ourselves out. Bubble skirts were revolutionary then, and many designers jumped on the thread to create timeless magics that are still relevant today. Our style suggestion is a strapless corset top on a bubble skirt finished with long gloves and heels. An appropriate style for attending a symphony or Opera.
3. Black bubble skirt
What would your wardrobe be worth if you didn’t have every fashion in black? Black is a universal color that can be combined with any other color and would still be a hit. We suggest every lady should get a black bubble skirt before picking other colors because it’s versatile. Our style suggestion; a sleeveless black and white camisole tucked in the black bubble skirt, with a jacket over it for that classic 80s look.
4. Bubble tennis skirt
Sports are always more accessible and fun when you wear simple, easy clothing. A bubble tennis skirt is appropriate for a sport like a tennis that requires running back and forth. A tennis bubble skirt is short, free-flowing, and allows free movement. Tennis bubble skirts are usually pleated to allow more movement and give style and distinction to the skirt. Before the 1920s, when women wore long skirts, it restricted their movement and made it difficult for them to run around, but thank goodness for bubble skirts, they came to the rescue, and the rest is history.
5. Bubble coat skirt
Back in the 80s, bubbles were designed as skirts only, until recently when it was discovered that bubbles could be made as coats too. Bubble coats have such an edge that only a few have the heart to wear them. Like winter coats, bubble coats can also be used for warmth and as a fashion statement. Style suggestion; a black tank top, paired with black leggings or skinny jeans and a bubble coat. Shoes can be ankle boots or dress sneakers.
6. Mini bubble skirt
Is a bubble skirt collection complete without a mini skirt? For those who want to show off their legs or their Jimmy Choo – what would be better than a brightly colored, playful, fun bubble skirt? A mini-bubble skirt. A mini-bubble skirt adds to the fun of bubble skirts. A typical bubble skirt design is tight around the waist and flays at the bottom. A mini-bubble skirt could take this form or be form-fitting from the waist to where the length of the skirt stops. You can always pair this style with a crop top to take your fashion score to a new level. Remember to carry an overcoat in case the weather changes, then finish off with beautiful heels.
7. Pleated bubble skirt
Bubble skirts have versatility, which is one reason we are excited to bring these suggestions to you. Asides from being fitted at the waist, then flaying at the bottom, it could be fitted at the waist and all the length of the skirt, or it could come with pleating. A pleated skirt, no matter the length, allows more movement and flow to the person wearing it. It makes rhythmic movements as you swing your hips back and forth, giving more swag to your overall look.
8. Plus size bubble skirt
We would not make this list without adding something for our beautiful women of a more dynamic body type. A plus-sized woman wearing a bubble skirt is one of the most beautiful things you would see today. A plus-sized woman can wear a bubble skirt when she doesn’t feel like showing off her assets and still feel stylish. Because its flay at the bottom allows her to move freely and not feel constricted by the skirt. A style suggestion is a tube top tucked in a pleated plus-size bubble skirt with a beautiful waist belt to bring more life to that beautiful waistline.
9. Denim bubble skirt
We want to take a moment and thank whoever invented denim. That fabric has brought us so much joy. So asides from making stiff wears with denim, it can also be used to make something playful and fun to wear. Bubble skirt in denim makes our styling even more exciting. Style suggestion; depending on the color of denim you’re wearing, choose a contrasting color of camisole paired with your denim bubble skirt, preferably a mini bubble skirt, and a denim crop jacket. You can wear this outfit with sneakers, a cross pouch, or just regular flats.
10. Tulle bubble skirt
Whenever we think tulle, we think volume. Anything tulle, skirt, gown, anything has extra volume and width. Tulle skirts are usually suitable for thin curvy women. It makes their hips look fuller and highlights their hourglass figure. The tulle skirt is versatile and isn’t limited to just gowns. Style suggestion; a plain shirt and a midi tulle skirt. This outfit can serve for every casual occasion, a date, the movies, a symphony, or just a walk in the park. You can spice things up by using very bright colors.
We are sure that with the list above, you are convinced that there are many styles out there for you to try out. You do not have to be constricted by body size or shape. There are ten options to choose from, and we are sure you would find more than one option that would work for you. So why not overcome that fear and anxiety and try out bubble skirts today to bring back the 80s vibe and slay your way to excellence?
