Women's wardrobes have a wonderful choice of items that are very flexible for work, more casual affairs and going out. One of the greatest pieces that a woman can have is a beautifully cut skirt, or better still a range of skirts in various cuts, prints and colours that make you feel womanly, confident and strong.
Skirts for business clothes like suits add a great feminine touch to something that's generally more masculine and conservative. There are many styles that work for any body shape and size while also fitting in a business work setting.
For a super stylish look, consider some of the following skirt fashions:
A pencil skirt is an elegant style that's made to show off curves in a body hugging manner. They are generally made knee-length or 3/4 length, which is why they are a popular choice as work attire. You can wear a pencil cut with a blazer, or dress it up with a silk blouse, sweater, or 40s style cardigan.
Since pencil skirts are form-fitting clothes, they usually fit with a high-waist to give a smooth curved appearance on the body. Worn with high heels or flats, it's a classic look that women will covet and men will love.
Flared skirts are more popular as casual clothing. They are normally made knee-length and may include pleats or gathers around a waist band. Younger wearers can team a shorter skater style with trainers or boots for a western feel, but be sure to add a great shoulder bag worn across the body to carry the look. The feminine cut is suits a pear shape and gives hip curves to an apple shape.
Straight skirts are staples for business because they fit pretty much every body shape and size. For a professional look, keep the skirt at knee-length and pair with a classic cut jacket, tucked in shirt, vest or sweater.
When choosing a straight style, it's important to remember to get a good fit that's flexible when walking and sitting down which may include a slit or small pleats for better movement. Since they are cut straight from the waist down, make sure the waist and hip areas fit well without ballooning. If that does happen, have it tailored to your body, or it may look sloppy.
A-line skirts are feminine and add a little more style to a weekend picnic, BBQ or work event. This style is cut in the shape of the letter "A" with the waist being smaller and the bottom much wider.
Clothes like a-line skirts are more flattering for women who have smaller hips since they add shape to the figure.
Full and Circle Skirts
Full and circle skirts are clothes made especially for smaller figures and those with fewer curves. They are normally knee-length and hark back to the 50s and 60s - think Grease and the lovely styling of Mad Men. They are a great skirt for fun with a t-shirt or singlet top and heels. The feminine cut suits a pear shape and gives hip curves to an apple shape.
For the office pair a darker solid coloured skirt with a cropped or tailored jacket. If the workplace is a little more relaxed wear with a conservative blouse or cardigan and flat shoes. So chic.
Pleated skirts are clothes that can be an instant hit or miss if not properly put together. Wearing pleats that look like those of preppy school girls should never be considered for serious business. However a horizontal stripe on a longer skirt gives a classic touch to a nautical outfit - think tennis rather than netball or cheerleader! Choose your contrast top with care.
