Retro & Vintage style A-line skirts from Mondo Kaos
Skirts are both comfortable to wear and easy to style. The skirt is thus the ideal way to vary its vintage look, in a simple way.
The A-line skirt is both comfortable and very wearable. The A-line skirt is flattering for both women with large curves, and for narrower types. The skirt is not typically the most festive of ours vintage style skirts, where one typically prefers the pencil skirt or the swing skirt, on the other hand, it is absolutely ideal as an everyday skirt, where you will always feel comfortable. We always have beautiful vintage style A-line skirts in sizes from small, medium and large to plus-size.
An A-line skirt sits, like all our skirts, at the waist, and sneaks into the upper part of the hips, after which it goes out in a trapezoidal shape, or A-line, without extra fabric.
The classic vintage style A-line skirt
The A-line skirt in the cut we know today was first seen in the 1940s, when the A-line cut was practical and suited the fashion silhouette of the time. During the war years, the silhouette was quite simple, and due to rationing even without pockets or other embellishments. After being out of the fashion scene in the 50s, the A-line shape came strong again and was modern in many different guises in both the 1960s and 1970s.
All ours retro and vintage style skirts, also those in the A-line, are of course high-waisted and sit in to the waist. So you get the classic hourglass silhouette no matter which skirt you choose at Mondo Kaos. With the A-line model, there is just typically a little more focus on the top.
WE of course have the classic A-line skirt that goes about to the knee, but in addition we have a beautiful mini skirt, inspired by 1960s fashion. With its A-line, our mini skirt is really very flattering and can be worn by all women, for example with a pair of nice boots.
A-line skirt for any season
The A-line skirt can of course be worn all year round, depending on the material. We have A-line skirts from The Seamstress of Bloomsbury In their light signature crepe de chine perfect for the warmer months. But we also get A-line skirts in the slightly heavier and warmer fabrics for the cooler months.
Since we only take a few home of each style, and have a large replacement in our range, this means that our selection of vintage style skirts also changes with the season. In the summer you will find mostly the light models, perhaps in bright colors and floral prints, and in the autumn and winter the warmer models. It also means that you can advantageously look past the store / webshop often as we get new items regularly, and your favorite A-line skirt may well show up if you may not have found it the first time. You can also sign up for our newsletter to make sure you hear about the news when it lands in the store.
A-line skirt for all occasions
No matter what type of A-line skirt you are looking for, we will be there to help you with us, at Mondo Kaos.
As the A-line skirt is a simple but flattering cut, it is ideal for putting extra focus on the top.
For example, an A-line skirt is ideal for a super nice top that you might want to tone down a bit. A solid-colored A-line skirt is also beautiful as a base for a top or shirt in bold colors and patterns.
For everyday you can also choose to style your A-line skirt quite simply, perhaps with a retro print T-shirt, for a completely low-key vintage rockabilly look. You can also style with one of the beautiful 1950s style off-shoulder tops.
You can also style your vintage style A-line skirt for party.
Should it be a drink after work or a big party? You can choose the delicious mini skirts in A-line cut, or a knee-length A-line skirt in beautiful glossy fabric. Wear it with beautiful stilettos, a figure-hugging top and vintage accessories for a wonderful festive vintage look
