Blue Skater Dress

Skater dress is my new obsession. To those who aren't familiar with what a skate dress is, it is a modernized version of an A-line dress. These are gorgeous! The A-line refers to the silhouette that is formed by the cut around the middle waist that makes it appear narrower in that midsection. Meanwhile, a flare at the bottom of the skirt resembles the ones that skaters wear, thus the name. 


I recently spotted a skater dress of my favorite color (blue!) and so I knew I had to get it. I was ecstatic when I tried it on and the size was just right. I sported this new dress when the boyf and I went on a movie date for Iron Man 3. By the way, loved the movie! 



Here are a few other to-die-for skater dresses I spotted online, if you'd like to hop on the trend:



Are you also into skater dresses as much as I am?
