Skirts in Mondo Kaos 

I Mondo Kaos we have a wealth of different skirts. We care a lot that there are skirts for everyone's needs or style.  

Our skirts has a retro look but can easily be styled timeless and super feminine so that they can be used for any occasion. 

Whether you are going on a date, to a party, to a job interview, or just want to look great for everyday at work, we have just the skirt that suits you. 

We have therefore made a small skirts guide for you, so you can find the perfect skirt with us in Mondo Kaos.


Pencil skirt in black

Pencil skirts or the tighter tailored skirt is good for you who want a slightly more body-hugging and super classic silhouette. 

The classic pencil skirt is a must-have, and you really get a beautiful and versatile skirt, which due to its simple look can be styled with patterns and strong colors as well as simple neutral shades for an elegant everyday look.

We have in Mondo Kaos currently three different editions of pencil skirts.

The House of Foxy: The Perfect Pencil 

Available in sizes xs- 2xl and in several different colors 

 Daily skirt from The House of Foxy is beautiful and high waist, and the waist is defined by a waistband. 

It closes with a beautiful mother-of-pearl button and zipper at the back.  

There are discreet seams at the top which are designed just so that the skirt can slip around your shapes, and then the skirt has a slight stretch, so it both sits up to the body, and at the same time it is super comfortable to move in. 

Skirts is also lined and has a fold at the back instead of a slit, in true vintage style, for greater freedom of movement. 

As you can see, the skirt is a little longer in style, about 78,5 cm, so depending on the desired look, this pencil skirt is better for those with longer legs. 

As this skirt is super simple, you can advantageously wear it with a pattern shirt or blouse eg the long-sleeved one 'Midnight Garden' from House of Foxy or with a tie-tied shirt. For a simple look, you can of course also go for the body-hugging, and choose one sweatshirt or roll collar.

House Of Foxy: Waterfall skirt 

Available in several different colors from xs-3xl 

sarong skirt in red

This skirt from The House Of Foxy is a good alternative for plussize women or if you want to hide the belly and highlight the waist and buttocks.  

The skirt is a 1940s inspired sarong skirt with "waterfall" draping - and is a nice and festive alternative to the simple pencil skirt. 

Skirts is made of a viscose / rayon material which gives a super drop and feels so vintage :-) 

The model has a natural draping over the belly which flatters and makes you not feel that the belly is too much in focus. 

As the skirt is eye-catching, the top can advantageously be without too many fabric details such as ruffles or bows. A beautiful shirt or strict top will be a good choice. 
The skirt measures 73,5 cm, and with this length fits well with most people.

This skirt from The House Of Foxy is great for dancing and we think it is ideal for ladies who usually avoid tight pencil skirts but still want a slim look.

Daisy Dapper: Foxie Pencil Skirt  

Available from xs-2xl 

This classic pencil skirt from Daisy Dapper is a shorter alternative to Perfect Pencil - and that means that it is also super good for people who are not so tall. 

That's a real treat pencil skirt. An inner waistband makes this skirt fit perfectly at the waist, and at the same time gives it a clean and simple look. 

It is of course sewn with incisions so that it shapes itself to the feminine figure, and can be styled to create a real hourglass shape. 

This skirt also has a slit at the back and the material has stretch, so you can move comfortably in it.

As with the House of Foxy skirt, this type of skirt can be beautiful with one shirt where something happens; a tie loop or pattern. And of course one sees turtleneck blouse also looks good here.

A-line skirts

En A-line skirt is a style that sits at the waist, sneaks up and has a slight fall down over the hips. 

An A-line is a good alternative to both pencil and swing skirts. It is a good basic for everyday life as it is easy to move in and at the same time is simple.

It is timeless and can be styled with most tops. It works well as it hides the belly, highlights the waist and does not give a big "strut" like a swing skirt.
