Skirt The Issue: The Best Skirts For Your Figure
There’s a long list of reasons why we love shopping, but there’s only one thing we can say we dislike: having too many options.
Take a deep breath because we are here to help. Of course you can pull of anything, but here’s how to find the skirt styles you will look the best:
Determine Your Figure Shape:
- Rectangle: Small bust and bottom with undefined waist
- Hourglass: Proportionate bust and bottom with very defined waist
- Oval: Narrow bust and hips with fuller midsection
- Triangle: Narrow bust and body wides at hips and waist
- Inverted Triangle: Larger bust and body narrows at hips and waist
Find Your Fit:
A balloon skirt has an airy shape with a thin waistband that sits tight around your hips or waist while the remaining fabric bellows up, up and away from your body.
- Fit For: Inverted triangle, Rectangle
Similar to the balloon skirt, the circle skirt drapes on the hips and then begins to flow outward. Not only does it slim the midsection, but it brings shape to the lower body, as well.
- Fit For: Oval, Inverted triangle
Starting sleek on the top, the dropped flounce at the skirt’s hem adds flare while elongating the lower body—a plus for ladies with shorter legs.
- Fit For: Triangle, Rectangle
A wardrobe staple for every woman, the pencil skirt has a streamlined silhouette that especially compliments those with a smaller waist or curvier bottom half.
- Fit For: Oval, Hourglass
If you really want to lengthen your limbs, slip on a maxi skirt, but be careful if you’re petite—all of its fabric can swallow you up. Wear one that stops just past your ankles with higher heels.
- Fit For: Triangle, Hourglass
To make a long story short, the mini skirt’s length helps to break up the lower half of the body. One in a bold color or print draws the eyes in and makes your waist appear to be more narrow.
- Fit For: Rectangle, Oval
Strategic layering allows a wrap skirt to emphasize all the curves that may not exist. It makes the lower body appear to be more visually interesting by adding shape where there isn’t any, regardless of its length.
- Fit For: Inverted Triangle, Rectangle
Even though this is a guideline to help you figure out the most flattering skirt styles for your figure, don’t forget the first rule of fashion: If you like it, buy it, regardless of what anyone else thinks. Feel good, look good.
