Bubble skirts

Bubble skirts

Fashion Synopsis

Bubble skirts were the 80’s version of Judy Jetson's pseudo-futuristic wardrobe. Anything seemed possible in the 80’s, and fashion tried it all.

Whether short or long, the one determining factor for any self-respecting bubble skirt was a quirkily structured shape that created a bubble-like poof. Usually seen on prom dresses, this look did not translate successfully to casual wear.

Couture designer Christian LaCroix created the bubble skirt as part of his 1985 line. A very short-lived fashion, only the most experimental girls tried this unflattering look. Who wants to look plumper than they really are anyway?
