Skirt of the Month: Broomstick Skirt

Here is one of my personal favorites - the Broomstick Skirt! These come in many different colors and style. This is a great skirt for Contra Dancing or just lounging around the house. They are also sometimes known as "gypsy" skirts.

The fabric is very breezy and the waists are usually elastic for an easy fit. Broomstick skirts usually have a "crinkly" feel to them and bellow out when spinning. These skirts are made for dancing. They are designed so that you can grab the fabric and make dramatic, sweeping motions with the skirt (think Stevie Nicks). They usually are ankle-length or a little longer so you may have to pull up the hem slightly when going up stairs.

I've got a number of broomstick skirts in different colors. They can be worn all summer or paired up with leggings during the cooler months. They are great for a casual look but can be dressed up a bit as well. I have a red broomstick skirt like in the picture but usually wear my black one, which goes with most everything. These skirts are some of the most comfortable skirts I've ever worn and are highly recommended for comfort and style.
