From beachside boho to forest fairy-inspired, flowy skirts are the epitome of romantic and delicate, and you could say, we are completely obsessed! Technically called circle skirts, flowing skirts on wedding gowns are airy and light and can be completely customized from the type of fabric to dainty details. Check out these ways to customize an Anomalie wedding gown with a flowy skirt.

Flowy fabric types for your Boho Bride Vibe

First things first: circle skirts are traditionally made from lightweight fabrics that move with the bride, whether you are posing in the wind on the beach or twirling on the dance floor. 

Chiffon – Incredibly soft and airy, chiffon has a slight sheen and is slightly more transparent than a georgette.

Georgette – More opaque than chiffon, but softer than tulle, this luxurious silk fabric has a matte finish with a crepe-like texture.

Soft Tulle – The most transparent of the three fabrics, soft tulle is slight stiffer.

It’s all in the details

Flowy skirts do not have a petticoat (the under layers of a dress that give shape to A-line dresses and ball gowns), so the ethereal look is created from the cut of the pattern in the skirt and the type of fabric you choose for your dress. And while simple is certainly sublime, a soft, flowing skirt does not have to be basic. Delicate details can be added in a variety of ways, including around the waist, on the skirt, and on the bodice. 

Around the waist

A belt covers the seam beautifully and accents the beginning of the circle skirt. Gathering at the waist gives the skirt a romantic, boho vibe. Lastly, a flat waistline seam that the flows down through the hips is sleek and sexy.

On the skirt

Add a subtle hint of color to a chiffon or tulle skirt with a blush, champagne or nude colored lining.

Ooh-la-la! A slit is a unique detail for a bit of va-va-voom, and, of course,  it makes it easier to show off your moves on the dance floor!

And on the bodice

It’s not all about the skirt. The perfect bodice design can make a flowy skirt shine. Your Anomalie stylist may suggest using the same fabric as the skirt with a creative detail, such as ruching, or accent your skirt with lace on the top.
