When it comes to flattering your figure, A-line skirts are the perfect option for us all! Find out how to style them now.
A-line skirts are definitely a fantastic addition to your wardrobe and there’s a host of reasons why. Learn why we love them and how to wear yours the right way…
Flatter your figure
A-line skirts are universally flattering! They feature a fitted waist and flare out gradually at the bottom – much like a capital letter A. They give the illusion of an hourglass shape, no matter your body type. On straight figures they create a curvier silhouette. In contrast, they slim down thighs and hips on a pear-shaped bod, while defining the waist for apple shapes. So it really is the perfect skirt for everyone.
Wear them all year round
Since these skirts are available in an array of styles and lengths, you can rock them all year long. Wear a midi option with a sleeveless blouse on a warmer evening or don a mini version over a polo neck, tights and boots for a winning winter outfit. In addition, this basic comes in a broad variety of colours and fabrics so you can take it just about anywhere.
Take it to the office
Pair a neutral, knee-length A-line skirt with a button-down shirt for a corporate look. You can then add a pair of courts and a cardigan or blazer. Finish off your outfit with a nude lip and structured handbag and you’re ready to go.
The leather look is in this year, so be bold and go for an A-line mini in leather for a look that’s sure to turn heads. You can pair it with a chiffon or lace top and stilettos for an edgy look, or tone it down with tights and a chunky jersey.
Keep it cute
A printed midi skirt pair with a fitted top is a classic combination. Take it to the next level by adding a brightly coloured pair of kitten heels and a fabulous statement necklace.
