For many years now, dresses have ruled. But, this year, a lot of designers are including lots of skirts in their collections. Most retailers are still selling the very popular long and glamorous maxi cut. But as you can see, there are far more skirt styles available than that. Here are some of my favorites along with a few suggestions about when and where you might like to wear them.
I am a bit of a fan of skater skirts. They are fun, but still classy enough to wear out to a nice restaurant. When choosing one, pay particular attention to the length. You need to choose one that flatters the shape of your leg and that you will feel confident while wearing. It also needs to be modest, so when trying one on remember to sit down in it to make sure that it does not ride up too much.
As I said earlier, the maxi skirt is still very popular, so unsurprisingly they are still widely available this year. The styling is generally speaking a bit more glamorous than it has been for the past few years. This makes them perfect for wearing for a special occasion. They are a particularly good choice for a summer wedding. One that is made from high-quality luxury fabric like silk is special enough for an occasion like this.
Yet, if you are just looking for a skirt for the holidays, a maxi skirt could be the perfect choice. A nice, soft, floaty one will not take up a lot of space in your case and will be light enough to keep you feeling cool. This type of maxi skirt is extremely versatile. It is perfect for popping on over the top of your swimming costume, so you can enjoy a meal in a proper restaurant without having to get changed. In the evening you can dress that same skirt up to turn it into something that is glamorous enough to wear for a special night out.
It is particularly good to see the pencil skirt making a bit of a comeback. This cut is extremely comfortable to wear and it easy to dress it up or down.
A lot of people think that you have to be rail thin to be able to pull off a pencil skirt. In reality, the opposite is true. This style of skirt actually looks better on a woman who has some curves. However, you do need to choose the right cut. If you are pear-shaped opt for a tapered pencil skirt, but if you are apple-shaped look for a straighter version and make sure it has a wide waistband.
