Choose The Perfect Printed Skirt For Your Body Type!


Are you under the impression that only women with perfect figures can wear a skirt with a bold print? No way! Peruse our easy-to-follow style tips and dare to rock one of the hottest trends of the current season, seen on the runways everywhere, from Dolce & Gabbana or Isabel Marant, to Mary Katrantzou and Missoni:

For prominent hips

>> A high-waisted skirt, like this one from Jonathan Saunders, with its circular print, will accentuate your waistline, while at the same time minimising your hips, thanks to the dark colours in the hip area.

>> Geometric prints attract attention in a positive way, flattering a voluptuous silhouette.

>> A pencil skirt with a high-waist punctuated by a wide band of fabric will attract attention towards your waistline, distracting focus from your hip area, and accentuating an hourglass figure instead.

>> If you choose to wear a striped style, make sure the stripes and any other linear embellishments on the skirt are vertical, not horizontal.

>> To mask any imperfections, go for fluid fabrics, such as silk or chiffon, that have an airy, flowing effect.

For camouflaging voluptuous legs

>> To camouflage a pair of not-so-perfect legs, choose A-line skirts with an above-the-knee hemline or pencil skirts with below-the-knee hemlines.

>> Just like in the case of prominent hips, go for lightweight, soft fabrics, that don’t cling to the body.

>> In the case of pencil skirts, choose styles that feature vertical seams at the waist, so as they don’t cling to your body.

>> A wrap tulip skirt can perfectly hide a pair of curvy calves, will the while being super feminine and flirty.

For androgynous silhouettes

>> An a-line silhouette accentuates your waistline, creating an hourglass effect.

>> A peplum skirt highlights your femininity.
