We can’t skirt around it—picking the right piece to highlight your shape is no walk in the park! If you’re an hourglass shape looking for a new skirt, read on to see how to complement your curves.
Here are the best skirts for an hourglass body type.
A+ for A-line
A true no-brainer for curves, A-line skirts sit at the waist and gently jut out with flouncy femininity. The effect? A silhouette that complements an hourglass shape to a tee. Tuck blouses and even basic tees into this style and reach for a pointed-toe flat or a shoe with a little bit of a heel to elongate the leg line.
When you’ve got (seriously enviable) curves, why hide them? Reach for a skirt that’s structured and clings to your figure. Bonus: Pencil skirts are a workwear favorite and always nail a polished look. Try a modern envelope-cut version with a fitted, wrap-front blouse for ultra waist-defining asymmetry.
That’s a (Maxi) Wrap
Ready for a little drama? Maxi skirts are a must-have for hourglass shapes and strike a balance between casual and glamorous. Try a maxi in a wrap cut to draw the eye across curvy hips and up to the waist. Knot your knit tee at the waist and add a moto jacket to take your maxi from summer into fall.
Don’t forget to tell your Stylist which of these hourglass-worshiping skirt styles piqued your interest for your next Fix!
