Flounce skirts inspired by mermaids are a fairy tale that brought fantasy to the runways-- Balmain, Dolce & Gabbana and Zac Posen all featured the look for the Spring.

The dramatic skirt, which has more than one alias--flounce and mermaid, is a stark departure from the pencil skirts of last season.

Here's how you can rock the look this season: balance off a mermaid skirt with a delicate top as opposed to a sharp one-- crop tops n'est pas bon!
