A 1950s circle skirt is one of those vintage essentials for summertime dressing. Ideal holidaywear, it’s comfortable in warm weather and instantly puts you in the mood for a picnic.
This one is from rockabilly brand, Hell Bunny, and only cost £27.50. Hell Bunny goes up to a size 20, so plus size babes can enjoy the retro glamour too. They sell a matching cropped bodice for those who are particularly proud of their stomachs, like this lady.
As I’m way too bulgey for a bralet, I wear mine with a gypsy top of standard length. I keep it figure-skimming to avoid looking like a Cath Kidston tent. Although if I was to look like a tent, a nice floral Cath dome would be my choice.
To make sure the waistband of your skirt is as fitted as possible, check the size guide before you buy. Too loose and you’ll lose that lovely 50s princessy silhouette. If you really want to feel like you live in a fairytale, get a frothy petticoat to wear underneath.
Here are some other Hell Bunny beauties I’ve got my greedy eye on. Warning, these skirts may cause spontaneous twirling.
