Like every girl in the world likes to wear skirts whatever the silhouette maybe, even I love to wear skirts since my childhood.
Whether it may be A-line,Broomstick,Bubble,Circular,Dirndl,Fishtail,Pencil,Pleated etc.
There numerous types of skirts for every body type.
What to Wear
|Bottom Heavy||Skirts actually flatter this figure more than pants do. Wear tapered skirts like the A-line and stay away from anything that is tight around the bottom.|
|Curvy Figure||Curvy figures can wear anything and are best complimented by tighter skirts that show off the body.|
|Flat Bottom||Flat bottomed women can wear tighter skirts to make their rear appear bigger. Skirts that are scrunched at the waistline also give the appearance of size. Avoid skirts like the A-line or fishtail that will make the bottom look flatter.|
|Larger Stomach||Ladies with larger stomachs can wear tapered skirts that do not have waistbands. Avoid anything that is tight around the waistline.|
|Non-Curvy||Those without curves can create them by selecting skirts that are shorter and fuller. Anything that adds volume to the bottom half of the body will help. Bubble skirts or anything that scrunches up at the waistline will be attractive.|
|Short Figure||Shorter women should not wear skirts that extend past the knees. Slimmer skirts and slightly tapered skirts will give the appearance of height.|
|Tall Figure||Taller women can wear calf length or knee length skirts to help break up long legs and make them look well proportioned.|
|Top Heavy||Top heavy women should wear the same skirts as non-curvy women. They need to add volume to the lower half of the body to create a balanced look.|
Named for its shape, long and slim like a pencil, the skirt emerged from World War II Europe. Cut in a straight line from the hip to the hem, the narrow fitting skirt was designed to save precious fabric rations.
Despite its frugal beginnings, nothing says hardworking glamor like the 1940s pencil skirt. Perhaps it’s because for the first time in history, women were expected to go out and work while the men were fighting.
If you love the pencil skirt, you’ll enjoy the unusual history of this timeless fashion.
In 1908 Wilbur and Orville Wright chose the wife of an associate, Mrs. Berg, to be the first female aeroplane passenger. As chains and propellers whirled and cranked close to her blowing and billowing skirts, the brothers tied a rope above Mrs. Berg’s ankles to avoid disaster.
WWI had a profound effect on fashion. Hobble skirts were quickly jettisoned for practical skirts. Hemlines rose from floor to ankle and then to calf length due to fabric shortages. Trousers, protested as sinful and ugly before the war, became practical for working women.
Shortly after the fighting ended, in 1918, the Suffragettes finally won the vote in the UK. American women won the right to vote in 1920.
