Skirts…oohhh I just adore them. For me just nothing can beat a good fitting skirt.. just nothing and now read the irony.. I don’t have a single skirt in my wardrobe. Yes its true.. last time I wore a skirt I was in school. The reason I am still deprived of this beautiful garment is simple.. I GET CONFUSED. I really get very confused about what type will suit me. Though I love it on everybody else I just can not find a right one for myself.
A-line Skirts: These skirts are shaped like a capital A i.e. narrow at the top and wider at the hem. Women with plus sizes or wider hips and thighs will look flattering in these skirts. These skirts tend to hide the fat around the hips and thighs.
If worn in big prints then these skirts give a voluptuous look to those among us who are thin.
Pencil Skirts or Tube Skirts: Both these skirts are fitted from the waist, the only difference among them is the length of the skirt. Pencil skirts are knee length whereas tube skirts go down to the calf or ankle.
Anyone with a perfect hourglass curves can carry this skirt. But if worn too tight they may destroy their look too. They require minimum accessorizing, just grab a sleek clutch, add a belt highlighting your waist and you are good to go.
Bubble Skirts: They have more fabric around the hip area as compared to the waist and hem, which makes them look like a bubble. These skirts are flattering on people with thin frame as they add voluminous effect to the appearance.
Knee length bubble skirts can be worn by curvy women too.
Straight Skirts: They are just straight.. I mean their width is same from the waist to the hem of the skirt. Due to this factor they generally have a slit to ease the movement. These skirts look good on any body shape though the length should be considered before buying.
Straight calf length skirts look good on boyish body frame. Pair them with heels and let the compliment roll your way.
Mini Skirts: Most stylish and versatile of the lot. Mini skirts looks good on thin women. Pair them with anything boots, flats, sandals just anything and they will come out equally good. Avoid wearing micro mini skirts if you do not have great legs.
A straight mini skirt looks stunning on women with long legs.
Flared Skirts: The only difference between flared skirts and A-line skirts is the flare at the hem. They cover the fat over hips and thighs beautifully. Pear shaped women can opt for these skirts.
These tips will surely help me get a flattering skirt for myself. Hope they help you too.
