These are just a few of the myriad styles of skirts. The poodle skirt was a knee-length, 1950s style of wide skirt with no pleats that usually had a poodle or other motif appliqued to the front of the skirt. The prairie skirt is a longer skirt that has multiple tiers. An A-line skirt is fitted at the hips and gradually widens so that it has an outline similar to the letter A.
