Skirts are very efficient pieces of clothing. They can take the helm when your outfit calls for something other than trousers or dresses. Chesca Direct has a vast collection of plus size skirts in all kinds of styles, but the key to choosing the perfect skirt to add to your closet has been with you all long. In order to pick a skirt that allows you to look like the fashion forward modern woman that you are, you have to go look at your own body type.
The good news is that there’s a style out there made for every body type, and they are designed to help you accentuate your body and to enhance your figure. Curvy girls have what is called an hour-glass figure. The kind of skirt that best suits your hour-glass figure is a pencil skirt. Pencil skirts work really well to accentuate your figure, particularly your waist and your legs.
If you want to further flaunt your legs, you can opt for mini-skirts with a pencil cut. The best way to wear a pencil skirt is to tuck in your shirt and put on a belt to accessorize. Don’t pick the extremes for your shirt, neither figure hugging nor too baggy as they won’t look well with a pencil skirt.
An A-line skirt is your best friend. Because an A-line skirt flares at the hips and flare out on the bottom, it helps draw less attention to your widest feature. You should also avoid any embellishments near the waist. Pick a skirt with vertical patterns or prints to give a slimming illusion to your waist.
For a straighter figure of uniform chest, waist, and hips, you can pick low-waisted skirts tapered near the hem. Materials and accents like laces, tassels, and ruffles will give help give you a fuller look, but accents like pleats should be avoided particularly near your waist. If you have slender legs, you can get flared skirts with fitted waistlines and shorter hemlines for better accentuation and a curvier look.
Broad Chest and Shoulders
If you’re a woman who’s broader around the chest and shoulders, straight cut and short skirts are the ones to avoid. To help draw less attention to your broad shoulders and give you a more balanced figure, pick a skirt that flares out near the bottom: an A-line skirt or a wrap around one is sure to do the job.
The basic idea is that you balance out your figure with the help of your skirt. If you’re petite, voluminous skirts and tiered ones will look really well on you. If you have a heavier bottom, avoid drawing more attention to it by wearing short skirts. If you have a pear-shaped body, accentuate your curves with closer fitting skirts. If still in doubt, go for an A-line skirt. A-line skirts usually look well on most body types, and it’s best if it starts from the smaller part of your waist.
