The skirt is one of the most feminine garments that exist and if you know how to choose the one that suits you the most, highlighting your strengths and hiding those that you don’t like, it will become a weapon of seduction that is difficult to match. Find out what type of skirt suits you according to your body and you will succeed.
Short, long, tube, hip, high-waisted, flared, two piece skirt set… The skirt, the most feminine garment in a woman’s wardrobe, can become your best ally by enhancing the curves of your silhouette and perfectly camouflaging some small flaws such as wide hips or a poorly defined waist.
When choosing the skirt that suits you best, you should take into account your own appearance: if you are more or less tall, plump, with pronounced hips … The length, shape and color of your skirt visually influence your image together and can help you, for example, to stylize your figure, to make your legs look longer and slimmer or to mark a flirty wasp waist.
If you are petite and not very tall, you are in luck because different types of skirts suit you. You will gain height if you choose those that go a few centimeters above the knee and those that add volume also favor you: pleated, puffed, with a frill … Be careful with skirts that go below the knee and somewhat wide, as you go to see you even smaller because the legs are practically invisible. On the other hand, the narrow ones that start at the waist will look very good, very 60s style. As for the colors, limit the dark tones and opt for cheerful patterns, light colors and pastel tones.
If your problem is the lack of curves (rectilinear trunk), make your skirt mark the point of your figure that you want to highlight, for example, the waist, with a high-waisted piece, or the hips, with a low-waisted skirt (mid-hip, showing off belly button). That visual “cut” that creates the beginning of your skirt will divide your figure and give it greater balance and harmony. Shaped skirts, with ruffles or feathers, are the ones that fit the best because they give a little volume to your thinness. On the other hand, tube and minis are good for you, but without overdoing it, especially if you have very thin legs.
The pencil skirt is one of the most elegant and flattering for women because it draws the feminine silhouette like no other. If you are tall, take it just above the knee and if you are short, shorten it a few inches. This garment will fit you like a glove if, in addition, your hips are not very prominent as it enhances them and gives prominence by providing a touch of absolute sensuality. For this same case (narrow hips), two piece sets are also a great option.
The volume of a skirt can be the key element to balance your figure. A very clear example is type “A” skirts (slightly flared), ideal for marking the waist and discreetly camouflaging wide hips. For the slimmest ones, both short and with a bit of flight are perfect, as well as those that fall below the knee, up to mid-calf and are made with vaporous or ruffled fabrics (petticoat type).
The fuller ones can also wear the “A” cut skirts with grace, but without excessive adornments. If you have a wide back or have a lot of chest, this type of skirt is also the most suitable for you, because its volume centered on the lower area will provide you with the balance that your silhouette needs (in this case forget the pencil skirt).
Finally, the miniskirts, so typical of summer, are suitable for both tall and short women as long as they have beautiful and stylized legs. In the first case, it is not advisable to wear them higher than mid-thigh (your legs would seem endless), while in the second, you can choose an “ultramini” (almost like a shorts) and combine it with a flat shoe. If you want to add a volume effect so that your legs do not appear so thin, choose tights in light tones or very striking.
