The right skirt shape does wonders for your butt, legs, hips, waist—and confidence! Here are our best picks for however you’re built.
If you’re plus-size:
Go for sexy pencil skirts that sleeken but don’t squeeze (who wants that?). Check out size-14 Muslimah Shabazz, 27, in this classic style—hot, hot, hot!
You want sleek, curvy lines, not tons of fabric. Shapely pencil skirts or A-lines with a defined waist are flattering and modern. If you want ornamentation, go for something subtle like the monochromatic tiers.
If you’re pear-shaped:
Go for a pleated A-line that hits at the knee, as seen here on Ashley Betton, 29. On top, something tailored, like this jacket, keeps the volume in check.
Fitted at the waist and swingy through the hips does your body good. There’s a reason this cut is always in style—it looks great on most women, and you can wear it with flats or heels. A hemline at the knee is most flattering. This advice is great for petites, too!
