How should you wear the skirts in your wardrobe?


Skirts never go out of fashion — even in the winter they match well with a pair of woollen tights. And, there’s so many styles, from thigh-split midis to pleated minis. This is great for freshening up our wardrobes, but how are we meant to know how to perfectly style each type? QUIZ, retailers of prom dresses, tell us their top tips:

A pleated midi

To make sure you wear your accordion skirt properly, ensure that it fits you properly. You want it to sit comfily at your waist, but also hang in a way that the pleats don’t look stretched. These skirts look great if you want to downplay bigger thighs and hips, as the pleats will create an illusion that slims down the lower half of your body.
Feel free to dress your pleated skirt up or down. For a chic look, go for a v-neck polka dot top with cap sleeves or for something more casual, try a graphic tee and cropped jacket.

A dip-hem skirt

Asymmetric skirts look fabulous for a summer occasion. Cut short at the front with a longer hemline at the back, the asymmetric skirt is perfect for showing some leg without revealing too much. Avoid going for asymmetric tops with this skirt style — it’s too much — instead create a cool contrast by pulling on a simple cami or square-neck, going out top.
Accessorise with hoop earrings and a bangle then choose whether you want to rock flats or heels, depending on the tone of the occasion.

Rocking an A-line

The style of an A-line skirts means that it flares out just slightly from the waistband for a gorgeous drop that suits all body types — especially pear-shape ladies. A-line skirts wonderfully highlight the tiniest part of your waist, so we recommend flaunting this outline with an off-the-shoulder bodysuit or simple crop top. 
Keep it elegant with your colour palette too. Think forest green, royal blue or deep purple. Then, match with block heels, a clutch and just a few pieces of jewlry.

Chic in denim

A summer essential is a denim skirt. You can get these in a range of hem lengths and denim washes — so go with what you feel comfortable in.
Rock the denim vibe by keeping your look cool and relaxed. Think casual, crew-neck tees, cool graphics, fun colors and quirky prints. Pair with a pair of white sneakers, wear your hair in a messy bun and keep jewelry to a minimum. If the event suits, wear a cap or straw hat — ideal for days at the beach or just hanging out.

The boho gypsy skirt

The gypsy skirt is a style staple for all body shapes. But how do you perfectly flaunt it in 2018?
This style channels 60s and 70s vibes, so get in the groove. Go for psychedelic colors like bright oranges, greens, yellows and pinks and pair with retro fabrics like velvet and chiffon. Tassels are obviously a great addition to a top for this outfit and bell sleeves look amazing with gypsy skirts, promising that you’ll embody the Sixties/Seventies vibe perfectly. Finalize the ideal gypsy skirt outfit with chunky bangles, mood rings, hoop earrings, and sandals!

The classic pencil skirt

Pencil skirts are a go-to for work events and formal occasions. Flattering and easy to style, choose this in a neutral shade — like beige, black or grey — and wear with a three-quarter sleeve dress shirt.
Don’t need to be so formal? Trumpet-sleeve tops create an eye-catching contrast with the fitted style of a pencil skirt, while the high-waist feature lets you combine this style with cropped tops without feeling too exposed. Accessorize depending on the level of formality: a few simple pieces for a professional event, and bigger pieces with coloured stones for more informal occasions. Ankle-strap heels always look amazing with this skirt style.

The wrap-body sarong skirt

Another holiday must-have is the sarong. With this skirt style, we say the louder and bolder the better. Go for animal, floral or geometric prints in bright and cheery colors and match with a loose-fit top or tank top.
Which shoes should you wear with this style? Slip on a pair of gladiator sandals during days on the sand, then opt for espadrille wedges in faux suede when the sun sets over the sea. You will want to keep accessories like jewelry to a minimum with this skirt style — but why not make the most of straw hats and cute shades instead?

A scooter skirt

A scooter skirt, or skort, is a combination of shorts and a skirt. Usually sitting at your mid-thigh with an asymmetric appearance, the skort is no longer a skirt restricted to casual settings, which means you can flaunt it the next time you head out for dancing and partying with your girlfriends.
Every girl can rock a skort effortlessly. Go for a design with a frill and pair with a long-sleeve, chiffon shirt or go for a clean-cut style that you can wear with a sweetheart neckline tee. If you want to really rock this fashion trend, pull on a plain, netral-shade v-neck top to draw people’s eye-line to your skort. Everything from wedges and pumps to sneakers and stilettos look incredible with a skort — so don’t hold back.
