Is the Bubble Skirt Actually Coming Back in Style?

Truth be told, when I’ve mentioned that I’m putting together a story on the return of the bubble skirt to colleagues, the instantaneous nature of them replying with a disgusted “no” is almost laughable. It’s true; the bubble skirt doesn’t have the best rap. And though my personal jury is still out on whether or not I’ll be wearing it again, it’s undeniable that bubble skirts are back on the market.

To present this unsettling information to you, I dug through the archives to find a few throwback examples of the bulbous silhouette, as well as current runway and celebrity examples that prove it can be made to feel modern and (dare I say it?) cool. You be the judge.
