Swing skirts at Mondo Kaos
The advantage of a skirt is how many possibilities it offers to style an outfit in new ways with different vintage tops and shirts. The skirt is thus the ideal way to vary its vintage look, in a simple way.
We always have the swing skirt in our range. Nothing says vintage style and hourglass figure quite like the swing skirt. Therefore, we have swing skirts many more colors and patterns, and in sizes from small, medium and large to plus-size. The swing skirt is the epitome of a feminine style and elegance, and who can say no to that?
The classic vintage style swing skirt
Our category of swing skirts covers two types of vintage style skirts, but overall the swing skirt is a skirt with lots of width in the skirt so it gives lots of fullness when dancing. The swing skirt can be worn with petticoat for even more fullness. The skirt can be a fully rounded circle skirt or it can have the classic pleats at the waist. The swing skirt gives the wearer great freedom of movement while giving a flattering fit around the waist.
At Mondo Kaos, we have several types of swing skirts, they all fit into the waist, most often with a marked waist piece. One type of swing skirt has a pleats at the top so it gets lots of fabric and width and then it stands out a little just below the waist and gives the perfect hourglass shape. We know it especially from 1950s where it also kept its entrance on the fashion scene thanks to Dior's New Look, where he took this design and turned it into a fashion statement that paid homage to the female figure.
Another version of the swing skirt is the type that is round cut or has 'full sun'. Here you get fullness by having cut the fabric all around before sewing. When turning, the skirt can be folded out into a circle.
Swing the skirt for different seasons.
The swing skirt is perfect all year round, but of course the fabric and look change according to the season. In summer and spring, the focus is on lightness and pleasant airiness, and then you can take advantage of the fact that you have plenty of fabric to highlight beautiful vintage style patterns or flowers. With a cardigan and stockings below, however, these can be easily worn in the colder months.
In the fall and winter, we have plenty of reinterpretations and swing skirts in warmer fabrics and colors perfect for the cold months of the year.
As we only take a few home of each style, and have a large change in assortment, this means that our selection of swing skirts also changes with the season. In the summer you will find mostly the light models, perhaps in light colors and floral prints, and in the autumn and winter the warmer models in darker colors. It also means that you can look past the store and the webshop often, as we get new items regularly, and your new favorite vintage skirt may well appear, even if you did not find it the first time.
