Remember when everyone wore jeans all the time? Well that is out! Now it’s all about skirts. In fun prints and all types of cuts we are seeing a skirt bonanza from short and flirty to long and flowing.
Here’s a look at all the fun and beautiful ways to skirt up!
Most flattering on medium to petite women, the mini is a great way to make those legs look long and slender. Pair with a tank or tee tucked in and accent the natural waist line by adding a belt.
The skirt for any occasion. The midi can be casual or formal depending on how you dress it. But most definitely it is always classy and comfortable. When sporting a midi it is very important to wear shoes with some height. Unless you have legs up to the neck like Audrey Hepburn then by all means go wear flats with everything. However the rest of us with medium to petite body types even just a one inch heel or wedge will help balance the look.
By far the most popular look this year is the maxi skirt (and dresses too.) This look is great for tall women but a bit trickier for the petite. Heels is always the obvious solution. However a few tricks can allow the petites to wear these long skirts with comfy flats. First thing is make sure you hem the skirt to about ankle length so that you are not drowning in fabric. Second you’ll want the skirt to start above your natural waist paired with a cropped or tucked top. By shortening your upper body it gives the illusion of a longer lower one.
Lastly we have the showing some leg skirts. Whether its the long slit up the side or the flirty sheer maxi with a mini slip we can all agree it’s all about the legs.
