10 of the Hottest Italian Skirts
A skirt is so feminine. It's sexy. It can hug the curves or caress them gently as the fabric cascades over the skin. Italian skirts come three ways. There are gonnellone (long skirt), gonna (mid-length, usually just at or slightly above the knee) and a mini gonna (mini, or short skirt). Many people equate the mini skirt with sex appeal. In this article, I'll show you that a skirt of any length can be both feminine and sexy.

La Perla: An Italian Fashion Icon
Sophisticated, luxurious and expensive, La Perla's beautiful lingerie has been worn by actresses and celebrities. The company's pieces have even become highly prized as collectibles, and its story forms a major chapter in lingerie history.
It all began in the 1950's when the company's founder, Ada Masotti, a concierge, started making corsets for wealthy women. Her fashionable, carefully-made lingerie became very popular and she started to develop the company with her partner, Ubaldo Borgomanero. She specialized in handmade lace and embroidery which is still one of La Perla's specialties.
One Hundred Years of Sexy Existence
The history of the brassiere, or the bra, as it has come to be commonly known, is intimately tied to the history of women. The first bra as we know it emerged in 1907 and in 2007 this controversial piece of intimate wear has completed a journey of 100 years. During this journey it has not only seen changes in a woman's ideal physical shape, it has also been an indicator of the social rise of women in the last century.

Choosing Skirts the Italian Way
Ever since skirt hemlines rose to the level of the micro-mini, there was only one way to go, and that was down, because they simply could not go higher and still be called skirts. With the rising feminism of the 70s, hemlines began their way down and did not really get back to the mini until the 90's when women began to feel confident enough in their feminine strength to bring the mini back into fashion.
The Invention of Skirts
Skirts can be sassy, flirty, businesslike, severe, fun or elegant, but all of them definitely emphasize one quality; and that is femininity. There was a time when the European women wore nothing but dresses and skirts, even to the point that the word "skirt" became slang for "woman" in the English language. But skirts were not always as feminine as they are today.
The History and Evolution of Skirts
Skirts are one of the oldest styles of garment known to mankind: after the loincloth, it was the skirt that graced the human form. Once a rectangular piece of material, be it animal skin or leaves woven together, was wrapped around the waist, the essential skirt was created.

These knee-length skirts are fitted to the body from the waist to slightly above the knee, usually in stretchy fabrics or with a slit at the back. They are for you only if you are skinny or slim, because they curve in at the hip, emphasizing the hips and the derriere. The black leather Roberto Cavalli skirt is a classic pencil skirt that could be worn to formal occasions for sensual elegance. Great for a svelte figure.
