Whether you’re going for chic and sleek or flowy and feminine, the right skirt can instantly define your look. Because skirts are a fashion staple, particularly during warm summer months, it’s important to stock your closet with the right styles for your body type. This simple guide featuring the season’s trendiest skirts will help you find the ideal skirt for you:
Pencil: Hourglass and pear-shaped figures can rock a sexy pencil skirt day or night. Pencil skirts show off those killer curves in a retro, va-va-voom sort of way. Pair with a blouse and blazer for a conservative office look, then turn up the heat for date night by matching your pencil skirt with a body-hugging tank in fun, colorful summer hues. Heels are a must with pencil skirts, adding definition to show off those long, gorgeous legs.
Enhance your wardrobe with a classic pencil skirt like the Forever Classic Skirt in Black & White Stripe. Then add funk and style to your weekend attire with a fun denim pencil skirt – we adore the 7 For All Mankind Slim Illusion Pencil Skirt in Faded Blue.
Maxi: Floor-skimming maxis look dramatic on statuesque beauties. If you have curves, look for fabric that doesn’t cling too much; you want to go for a breezy maxi style. For tall skinny ladies with more boyish figures, a tighter maxi that sits low on the waist is a great choice. Maxis are ultra versatile, so pair yours with sandals and a tank on sizzling summer days and a light jacket and booties for cooler evenings.
This year we can’t get enough of Saint Grace maxis. The ultra-soft fabric made extra-long is ideal for tall women with panache. Check out the new Saint Grace Fern Maxi Skirt in Venetian Ombre, which is a dip-dyed blue that’s to die for, and the Saint Grace Moby Stripe Foldover Skirt in Oat/Liberty in a super-chic chevron print.
Peasant: The cousin of the maxi, the peasant skirt is a great option for casual summer days where an airy skirt is just the ticket for staying stylish and comfortable. These flouncy tiered skirts are often made from cotton and have a boho-chic vibe. Because of the fullness of peasant skirts, they look great on boyish and pear figures. The full skirt is balanced by wearing a tighter top, such as a cute cropped tee or skin-hugging tank.
One of our favorite summer looks is the white Kyra Peasant Skirt paired with a bright, colorful tank. For chillier days, simply add a cute denim jean jacket and you’ll be all set!
A-line: Fitted at the hips and gradually widening toward the hem, A-line skirts look awesome on virtually all body types. Tall ladies look amazing in mid-length A-line skirts. As timeless as your mother’s pearl necklace, a great A-line skirt will be a wardrobe favorite for years to come. Find a few in basic colors like black and beige, and then experiment with some fun feminine prints and colorful floral A-lines that look oh-so-cute.
The Kyra Floral Skirt in Black fits and flares in all the right places, with a figure-flattering crossover detail that will earn you loads of compliments. The Stillts A-Line Skirt in Black is a great basic skirt and a wonderful foundational element to enhance your professional wardrobe.
