As mentioned earlier, different types of these skirts can be worn depending on your body shape. For instance, if you have a large waist or tummy, choose a skirt that has little waist band and flows out towards the hips. Avoid high waist skirts that have details in the front, such as gathers or a zip. They will only accentuate the bulge of your tummy. You can also wear an attention grabbing belt that will draw the eye away from your problem area.
- If you have a small waist, a fitted skirt will work best for you. This is because it will cling to your waist and show it off. There are women who have either long or short waists. If you have a short waist a skirt with a narrow waistband will serve to increase the length of your legs and torso. If you are long waisted, choose skirts that have a wide waistband. You can also create this illusion by wearing wide belts.
- If you have a large bottom, skirts with gathers work in your favor. A-line skirts that flow will hide your curves. Avoid pencil style high waist skirts as they will cling to your bottom unattractively. In addition, if you have wide hips, the best skirt would be ones that have details that create length. Bulky pockets on the side, aid in giving you a slimmer appearance. Avoid skirts that are ruffled or have tiers. These tend to over-emphasize the width of your hips.
- If you have a flat bottom, skirts with details, gathers or pockets will draw attention away from that part of your body. Waistlines that are gathered give an illusion of fullness. If you have long legs wear skirts that are mid-calf length as these will create a more proportionate look. Avoid miniskirts, or high waist skirts that are above the knee as they will only accentuate your leg length and make your body look out of proportion. Women with shorter legs will benefit by wearing short skirts that lengthen their legs. They should also avoid skirts that are full because they tend to add emphasis to short legs.
You can wear mid-length skirts if you have short legs only if they are paired with stilettos. Slimmer styles also tend to look awesome on you. High waist skirts also look great if they are worn with the right pair of shoes.
