Style: Choosing the Perfect Skirt

I love how fashion constantly evolves; when it comes to my clothes, the older I get, the braver I seem to get - and I'm really enjoying being able to try new styles at the moment.

This year has been a particularly interesting one in the style stakes. The heatwave we've been experiencing in the UK has certainly had an impact on what we're wearing. The jeans and trousers have been packed away and the warm weather seems to have encouraged more of us to wear skirts and dresses. Let's face it - they're super comfortable and a great way to stay cool (and get a bit of colour on our pins at the same time).

Firms like are stocking a huge range of different skirts right now. All you have to do is to choose the right cut for you.

Here are a few tips to help you to do exactly that.

Skirts for triangle/pear-shaped women 
A-line skirts are the perfect option for someone with a pear-shaped figure. They look great teamed with a tailored jacket or top that fits closely. A skirt made from lightweight fabric that hugs the waist but fits loosely the rest of the way down is brilliantly breezy in this weather too.

The right skirt for an apple-shaped woman 
If, like me, you carry most of your weight around your middle and have skinny hips and legs, the chances are you are apple-shaped. For you, a high waistline can work really well especially if you choose a flouncy style skirt. I feel much more comfortable wearing my waistband high.

Skirts for the petite woman​ 
If you are petite go for shorter hemlines. This style of skirt will elongate your legs. The closer fitted ones can look quite chic when paired with a smart blouse and they will enhance your curves too.

A great plus-size skirt 
Wearing a pencil skirt is a perfect way to enhance your curves. Look for one that is made from high-quality closely woven fabrics that will have a smoothing and controlling effect.

A great alternative to skirts 
If you're not a skirt fan, you might want to try out a jumpsuit instead. You can stay lovely and cool if you choose a wide-leg version, or one with three-quarter length legs. Last year, I kind of fell in love with jumpsuits, so much so, that I wrote about my favourite ones. You can read all about them by clicking here.
