Skater Dress Craves

One of my favorite items to shop for are skater dresses. I have had a hard time finding them in the U.S. but now that sites like Evans, Simply Be, and Asos ship to the United States, my luck has changed.  Now, you might be wondering what is the difference between a skater dress and just a normal dress.  It all comes down to the cut.  I think I am a big fan, because I am such a 90's fashion fan.  The skater dresses are very reminiscent of the baby doll dresses that were popular in the 90's.  The dresses tend to be 3/4 sleeve, somewhat empire waist, free- flowing throughout the body of the dress, and should hit a couple inches above the knee (give or take).  I think I love the way the dresses tend to fit me.  They are so comfortable and can be dressed up or down.

I have made several outfit ideas based around 4 skater dresses that I am in love with right now.

So, do you love it? Now if only I could own all of these items.  Then I would be set.  Let me know what you think? Do you love the dresses? How would you wear them?


  1. Another fabulous job, Tiffany. I love the bright yellow, the flowered Doc Martens and the Torrid tights. So many great looks here! Oh, and P.S., you do own many of these items.

  2. Really cute! Love the dresses! Im pretty sure I'd just wear flats, a knitted beret, and a necklace. Maybe some tights too. Plain jane I know haha. But I love they way you'd style these dresses!

  3. Thanks for the inspiration! :-) Gotta love that Black Petticoat from Domino Dollhouse. Xoxo Miss Cherry Lipz (
