Skirts can be tricky to match. Check out Drape Fit’s fashion breakdown on pairing each types of skirts with the perfect outfit, for the right body type. Let’s get styling!
The midi skirt is in style every season. It’s elegant, it’s comfortable, and it’s super easy to mix and match! This types of skirts pair up with your favorite tee or an oversized sweater; or a cropped cardigan and tucked in cami. The best part of wearing a midi is the attention it brings to your feet. Get playful with a pair of ankle boots or embellished sandals to amp up your style quotient.
Style Tip: Anyone can pull off a midi skirt, especially if you’re looking to add a few inches to your height. Find one that hits mid-calf, throw on some heels, and walk tall in no time.
Get party-ready with a sexy miniskirt! Volume is the key to styling this wardrobe star. This types of skirts can make you look younger if you wear it right. Make it yours by playing with a classy leather jacket or a romantic puff-sleeved to for a timeless staple.
Style Tip: Apple shapes find definitions in high-waisted styles that show off their legs, while rectangles can play up their athletic shape. If you’ve got a slim midriff, don’t be afraid to add some cami to your look.
Maxi skirts are a must-have in every wardrobe. This types of skirts can be both casual and formal. Create a show-stopping look by adding a sweater or a white tee with rolled sleeves; throw in a statement scarf or necklace to make this graceful fabric shine. Crop tops are also a great fit.
Style Tip: Find a piece that hits at or just past your ankle so that it doesn’t drag on the floor, and isn’t so heavy that it overwhelms your frame.
Whether it’s a breezy midi or a metallic maxi, this types of skirts are the ultimate way to emphasize your figure. Go for a subtle tone for work or vivid colors for dates, and complement it with a white blouse for a fresh off the runway look.
Style Tip: Midi pleated skirts flounce flatteringly on apple body types, while longer styles add volume on straight frames and balance out inverted triangles.
This underrated gem is the silhouette of the season. Go for a smooth, breezy look with an untucked button-down or tee with a jacket for a laid back look. To glam it up a bit, try a puff-sleeve or sequined top that says summer chic.
Style Tip: Because they’re so straight, slip skirts generally suit a rectangle frame. But bias-cut fabrics are always flattering on apple shapes.
Trade-in your jeans and add denim skirts to your shopping list! A seasonless versatility, these skirts are making a comeback so stay on top of the trend. Focus on mixing and matching textures. Try out an ultra-embellished blazer or a tough leather jacket. If you’re up for a bold look, pair it with an off-shoulder crop top.
Style Tip: They come in so many different shapes and sizes, just like jeans. Pick a skirt that outlines your body perfectly. All eyes on you!
A-line skirts are volume-heavy on the bottom, so strike a balance by wearing a fitted or tailored top. It’s far more polished than a mini and more casual than a pencil skirt. What’s not to love about this refreshing piece? Go for a button-down with a statement necklace or wear a simple blouse and belt it!
Style Tip: This is an excellent choice for pear-shaped figures because they flare out over hips to complement curves.
With its sleek lines, body-fitting shape and flattering hemline, it’s not too difficult to see the pencil skirt’s timeless appeal. Monochromatic dressing with a simple blouse or sweater can do wonders for your office look.
Style Tip: Hourglass figures whose curves are accentuated by the form-fitting shape can pull this off effortlessly. Stretch styles streamline pear-shaped bodies, while high-waisted ones balance inverted triangles.
Skirts are ideal for any occasion, and they’ve got endless styling potential. Give other bottom wear styles a run for their money with the right skirt! Be a trendsetter with Drapefit’s expert styling team to up your fashion game!
