Skirts for Every Occasion
There are plus-size skirts to suit every sort of occasion.
For summertime comfort, choose a maxi skirt. The soft fabric will move with you, and you'll stay cool even in the hottest weather. Want to show off a little leg? Pick a casual skirt with a fun print.
Ready to head to the office? Instead of wearing plus-size pants, choose a skirt in a neutral color, like gray, black, or beige. Pair it with a button-up blouse or another top that fits your workplace's dress code. Add some pizazz to your outfit with elegant accessories. Transition to the evening by changing out your accessories, opting for chunky and colorful pieces that stand out against your outfit's neutral backdrop.
If you're getting ready for date night, pick a skirt that shows off your curves in the best way possible. Wear it with a pair of alluring but comfortable heels. Maybe throw some sexy tights on for an extra dash of appeal.
Choosing the Perfect Cut
Plus-size clothing encompasses a broad range of skirts.
A-line and circle skirts are universally flattering. They can show off your hourglass figure and give your legs plenty of room to move. They usually hit the area around the knee, making them as modest as they are comfortable.
Pencil skirts and straight skirts are also wardrobe essentials. They can be fun or demure, depending on the color and the fabric. A bandage pencil skirt that hugs your hips can turn heads when you're at the bar for drinks on the weekend. A black straight skirt can be your ideal go-to piece when you can't decide what to wear to work.
Pay attention to length, too. If your skirt hits above the knee and you're going to the office, be sure to wear tights with it. Ankle-length skirts may be perceived as being on the casual side, so keep that in mind when you're putting your outfits together.
