The season of skirts is almost here again, and needless to say, we are super duper stoked to have the summers back! We have already started prepping our closets for the sunny days ahead, and we know you have too. Here’s the low-down on the 3 types of skirts you absolutely need in your summer wardrobe for 2016!
Maxi Skirts – It seems that 2016 is taking a style cue from the ’70s! It’s the complete flower child fix for the free spirited bohemians out there, but this skirt length is also much more than that. The romantic, flowy maxi skirt is a gorgeous silhouette, and it can be styled so many ways. Whatever your personal style preference, we’re pretty sure there is a perfect maxi skirt somewhere out there for you.
The trend has now evolved to offer fashion lovers a garment that is both comfortable and sexy: side-split maxis. The beauty of the maxi split trend is that it can be paired with everything from a leather jacket to a silk blouse and can be worn in a variety of different settings.
A-Line Skirts – There is something wonderfully feminine and freeing about wearing an A-line skirt (which is wider at the bottom, like the capital letter A). It accentuates a woman’s hourglass curves—but, unlike a pencil skirt, allows freedom of movement. Instead of stepping carefully, one can stride—or even sashay! This slightly retro shape can be ladylike or wildly sensual, depending on the fabric and volume of the skirt. Stiffer materials tend to be more conservative and work-appropriate. And fluid full skirts can be downright seductive! The temptation to twirl is hard to resist.
Pencil Skirts – A black pencil skirt is arguably one of the most versatile items in any lady’s closet, and accordingly, should be a mandatory part of any style arsenal. It may have started as an office essential, but that doesn’t mean this knee-length sheath is strictly business. Pair it with fun graphic tees and sneakers for the perfect sporty chic look. Fit and length are the two most important aspects and you should never choose a skirt that is too tight (it looks tacky and it will be incredibly uncomfortable). If the skirt bunches or makes horizontal lines at the hips then you know it’s too small. As for length, a pencil skirt should fall around the knees, or just over, ensuring that the skirt draws attention to the slimmest part of your legs.
