Skirting The Issue: The BEST Skirts For Every Body Type!

Finding the perfect skirt can be quite a challenge, given how many options we’re always surrounded by! And unfortunately, not everything looks as good on us as they do on the mannequin. That’s why we bring you our list of the best skirts – in every length! – for your body type, so you can be totally sure if the one that’s making you reach for your credit card is the right one for YOU!

1. If you’re an apple shaped girl

Volume is key! If you have an apple shaped body (a curvy torso and a relatively slim lower body), high-waisted skirts are a good idea, especially if they flare out from the hips. The line of the skirt will add volume to your hips and flatter your figure.

2. For the pear-shaped girl

If you have a pear shaped body (broader at the hips than your shoulders), you should go for more structured materials, and also A-line silhouettes. Lighter or stretchy fabrics like jersey can make your hips appear wider than they are – whereas thicker and more structured fabrics emphasize your hips just the right amount! A higher waist is also a good idea since it focuses the attention on the narrowest part of your body.

3. If you have an athletic figure

5. If you’re a girl with a petite frame

The key for you is to find skirts that add height to your silhouette, and don’t make it look like you’re drowning in fabric. Structured materials are a good idea for this; and when you’re going long, pick something with a side-slit to show a hint of leg and add height to your frame. Avoid mid-calf length skirts – they tend to make a small girl look shorter still.
