I love skirts. They are a great way to give yourself plenty of outfit choices. With just a couple of skirts, a few tops and maybe loose fitting wide belt, you can create enough outfits to take you through an entire week.
Right now, there are some lovely plus size skirts available from retailers like fashionworld.co.uk. They sell skirts for ladies who are sized between 8 and a 34. This retailer stocks nearly 200 different cuts or designs, so you really can´t go wrong with them. Here is a quick roundup of some of my favorite 2018 skirt cuts.
If you like the tailored look, a pencil skirt is the way to go. They can be very sexy and glamorous as well as being very smart. If you have an interview to go to or already work in an office environment a pencil skirt is an especially good option. You can pair it with a nice jacket or, on a hot day, just wear one with a blouse.
All you need to do is to choose the cut that works best for your body shape. Click here to learn exactly how to do that. Generally speaking, you need to avoid the straight-cut versions. Tapered pencil skirts with high-waistlines are a good place to start. This cut tends to accentuate your womanly curves and is more likely to actually stay in place, so they hang better. Try one on and I think you will see what I mean.
A lot of women look good in A-line skirts. Although you do need to be a bit careful with this cut. You do not want to choose one that flares out too quickly. They tend to look a bit tent like. If you feel self-conscious about your hips be sure to choose one that skims over that area. In all likelihood, you will have to try quite a few on to find the perfect one for you. But, once you do, you will be able to look at photos online or see one in the shop and know almost instantly whether it will work for you. So, buying your second A-line skirt will be much easier.
If you are looking for something a bit more casual, consider buying a chino or denim skirt. Again, be careful with the cut. Generally speaking, the dead straight cuts are best avoided. Also, ignore the ones with pockets. On a woman with curvy hips, the pockets will have a tendency to gape.
This style of skirt is generally made from quite a heavy cotton fabric, which has a sculpting effect and provides a bit of support. If you can find one that is embellished, that is even better. The embroidery adds a little extra weight, which will help the skirt to hang properly and stay in place. Plus, the embroidered area will not crease. This is an important consideration if you spend a lot of your day sitting at a desk or workbench. A heavily creased skirt can look pretty scruffy.
Light summery skirts
If you come across a lightweight floaty skirt, in your size, definitely order yourself one. Provided the waistband is well-made and sits in the right place, you will look great in this type of skirt. I was lucky enough to find a couple of 100% cotton print skirts a few years ago. As you can see here, they looked great.
When shopping for this type of skirt follow the same principles as you would when buying an A-line cut. Provided you do this, you really cannot go wrong with this style of skirt.
Ok, so those are my favorites. I would really like to hear which styles of skirt you like best, so, please, let me know by leaving a comment.
