Skater Skirts first became fashionable when skating became more popular in the US in the late ’70s. Before this, women often wore t-shirts and jeans only.

These garments became associated with skating only because they were cheap and easy to get. They became even more popular when the hockey ice started to be covered with ice for games. This made skates even more essential.

A skater skirt can be either a short mini-skirt or a long true waist mini-skirt. The styles are usually either knee-length or long above the ankle in some cases. The mini-skirt is great for casual skating at parties where there may not be many other skaters.

Skirts for formal occasions are usually longer in length. They are worn with tuxedos, ball gowns and other more formal attire. Some women also wear them outside on the beach or pool. Long skirts give the feeling of sophistication and formality, while a shorter length can be more casual and fun.

High-Low Skirts

High-low and low-hemline skirts are just as casual and fashionable as their high-rise counterparts. They are most popular with girls. The hemline can be either high or low, depending on what you prefer. Some have patterns, while others have distinct pockets on the side.

Ankle-length Skirts

This type of skirt is called “little black dress reform” by some people. The reason these types of skirts are so popular is that they offer some of the best coverage at an affordable price.

Kaunake The kanakas (or waist-high kayaks) are another type of skater skirt. These skirts are usually knee-length and have a tapered hemline. The hemline is a lot lower than other types of skorts, such as the skorts with a hemline that falls right at the ankle. This makes them very comfortable to wear and give a sleeker, smoother appearance.

Maxi Skirt

Another popular type of skater skirt is the maxi skirt. Maxi skirts are very comfortable, elegant, and extremely versatile. In terms of casual occasions, they are often worn with leggings or cropped pants. In the evening, they are typically worn with evening dresses or with gowns and tuxedos.
