Skirt style

By Silhouettes1 · May 23, 2011 · 0 Comments ·

With summer on its way it’s time to forego the tights and break out the skirts you can wear on their own…just throw on a pair of sandals and go!

When you’re choosing a skirt, it’s important to note which kinds look best on your body. Do you prefer loose and long and flowing? Short and smooth?  Which lengths are flattering and which make you look shorter or stouter?

A long skirt like this is great for average-height or taller women. It works in the winter or fall with tall boots, but in spring and summer, some great strappy sandals are ideal.

Another idea for women of all heights is this knee-length skirt. In gray or white this can be a mix-and-match piece, but a ton of other colors add some fun, too. This plus-size skirt works with either flat or heeled sandals or wedges.

And this piece, called a riding skirt, is slightly shorter than the previous two. It’s loose-fitting with an elastic-back waist. A skirt of this length should work for women of most heights, and looks great with heeled sandals.
