How to Buy a Flattering Plus Size Skirt
Choose flattering details
It's all in what type of details you choose. Focus on prints and embellishments that elongate and trim down your figure (like for example
pinstripes, visible zippers, pleats or vertical paisley prints). Avoid details that stretch horizontally.
Go for a flattering length
Another important factor in looking great in a skirt is to select the right hemline that show your legs as the wrong ones can make your legs appear stubby.
So if you have muscular legs avoid anything that hit
on the widest part of your legs - the calves. Mini's, knee length and long hemlines (extend past your ankle knuckle or falls above your ankles) will look great on you.
Concentrate on dressing your body shape
In this way, you'll know what type of skirts complement your figure. Like for example, if you have wide shoulders compared to your hips you'll notice that print and sequin skirts will suit you best because they balance out your figure by creating curves around your bottom half.
On the other hand,
if you have curvy hips and thighs you'll already know that you need something dark and solid colored to slim down your bottom half. Click here to learn how to dress your body shape
