Fashion Do: Bandage Skirts
Recently, celebs seem to have traded in their bodycon bandage dresses (popularized by Herve Leger) for skintight curve-hugging bandage skirts. Bandage skirts have been popping up on celebrities in all different colors (Above: Kim Kardashian, Miranda Kerr, Hilary Duff, Lauren Conrad) and styled in many different ways with sequined blazers, silk blouses, sweaters, and leather jackets. The bandage skirt is meant to be uber tight to show off your curves, so this style is not for the self-conscious girl! Also, unless you are very small on the bottom be wary of styles that alternate band colors because, as everyone knows, horizontal stripes are not always the most flattering. If you want to try out this trend, I've gathered a few options for you to choose from below. While many of the bandage skirts pictured below have a pattern or color to them nearly all styles also come in a basic black.
