It cannot be denied that wearing shorts and pants are extremely comfortable. But there’s something lacking in these bottoms that only a skirt can satisfy—the power to look sweet and dainty. With the range of options available now, skirts are no longer just girly-girl items of clothing, they now also cater to fit a wide range of styles—from that sweet girl-next-door-look to a quaint monochrome OOTD.
So if you’re looking to stock up on these wardrobe mainstays, here are 5 must-have skirt styles you need to have.
Printed Skirts – It was back in 2013 when printed skirts came to be and they have maintained their status until now because more and more designers are incorporating art into their fabrics. A design of a printed skirt can range from floral, to abstract, to patterns, or even to a tribute to Star Wars. Simply put—there are so many prints out there that fit every fashionista’s personality. So add a dash of fun to your wardrobe by stocking up on a range of printed skirts.
Midi Skirts – If you’re not comfortable with a mini-skirt but don’t like a full-length one either, then the midi- skirt is for you! It falls till just below the knees and is considered a very pretty hemline. Whether it’s body-con or flowy, a midi-skirt is the classiest choice of them all. They look especially great when paired with high heels and a simple tee. Midi skirt is a must have closet item because they are the “go to” skirt for this season!
Circle/ Flared Skirts – The circle skirt accentuates a woman’s body pretty well—tight on the waist and flared out at the bottom, giving you an hourglass figure. Pair it with a fitted top, or tuck it in to balance out the shape.
Maxi Skirts – Contrary to popular belief, a full-length skirt looks good on both tall and petite girls. Get one with slits on both sides if you want to flaunt your legs, or a buy an ombre-coloured one for summer vacations, or get a floral-printed one for that carefree, hippie vibe.
Pencil Skirts – Pencil skirts have always complimented formal, business attire; paired with formal shirts, blouses and blazers. However, they have taken a turn for the informal recently. Pencil skirts with floral prints, aztec prints and various other quirky prints make for perfect ‘dining out’ outfits or day wear outfits. They accentuate your curves and high waist pencil skirts, even make your waist look slimmer. The length is usually a few inches below the knee. They add a sassy, elegant yet chic angle to your attire.
