In a marked shift from the masculine trousers of past seasons, school girl style full skirts have been sashaying down runways for fall 2013. We first spotted the trend at New York Fashion Week on models at Alexander Wang (above left), Creatures of The Wind and Proenza Schouler, and since, the trend picked up steam across the pond at London Fashion Week, popping up at Topshop Unique (above right). The look is more serious secretary than Britney Spears, but if you’re feeling too demure, feel free to toughen it up with leather versions, like the ones at Timo Weiland and Patrik Ervell.
