Poodle Skirt

Definition: Poodle Skirt

Poodle Skirt

Full, circle skirt from 1950's, with poodle dog design on surface. No fashion motif has stuck around as long as the poodle. During the mid-70s, punk rockers in London were the first to liberate poodle skirts from mothballs. New York girls who were fans of the Ramones were also devoted to the skirt.

In the early 80s, circle skirts and bobby sox trickled into mainstream teenybop fashion, and ten years later, in the mid-90s, the poodle skirt saw a small resurgence with a revived interest in "cocktail culture" and swing dancing.

Keep the poodle alive this Halloween with this 50s Poodle Skirt, $29!
