A skirt is an essential garment in every woman’s wardrobe. It is an easy way to look chic and different types of skirts will help you achieve different styles for various occasions. They are fun, versatile and flexible to be worn every day. If you don’t own one, it is about time you did.
Here are 5 different skirts every woman should own.
- Pencil skirt
A pencil skirt is usually figure hugging and knee-length. It is a great option for formal and office wear especially because it pairs so well with a blazer and will look formal regardless of its colour and design. You can also dress it down with a t-shirt or lace tops and a pair of sneakers. Regardless of your body shape, pencil skirts are flattering for most women.
- Mini skirt
No list involving skirts would be complete without a miniskirt. Miniskirts are a great way to show off your legs especially if you are blessed with beautiful limbs. They come in quite a variety of types from tight ones, to bubble skirts, tutus, plaited, the list is endless. Depending on the fabric used, this can help you determine how and where to wear them. For example, a mid-thigh, plain, satin mini without prints, can be worn to a formal occasion.
- Maxi skirt
A maxi skirt is the total opposite of a mini. It is usually long and flows to cover the entire length of your legs. Maxi skirts cover the ankle completely and can sometimes touch the ground. If you like a more conservative look this works. To give it some edge, you can pick one with a thigh slit or pair it with a crop top.
- Midi skirt
Midi skirts are generally in between the mini and maxi skirts. They cover the knees but are usually above the ankles. If you couple your midi skirt with the right shoes, midis can be flattering for all figures. For stubby calves, you can pair your midi skirt with sandals to give an elongated illusion.
- A-Line skirt
A-line skirts are usually wider at the hemline than they are at the waistline. You can wear them at whatever length you want, long or short. They suit all body types and can be worn to a variety of occasions, whether casual or elegant. The fabric and length of your A-line skirt will guide how you style your skirt.
