A woman can never get tired of wearing skirts thanks to the innumerable styles and patterns they are available in, which make them apt for all body types. Trends keep changing every season and so do collections of premium brands. Some designer brands that cater to the latest trends include:
Spring 2012 witnessed the return of pleated skirts with a bang. Esteemed fashion houses such as Prada have designed an amazing range of pleated skirts in 3 basic types i.e. mid-thigh, mid-length or knee-length and maxi style. These types of skirts are quite popular since they create a flattering silhouette that looks good on most body types.
A pink pleated skirt from the Italian designer label Prada is great to wear on a sunny day. This is a mid-length skirt with pleats across the front and back, and you can team it with a white peasant top or a tube top to beat the heat.
Perhaps the next denim outfit after jeans, which enjoys popularity among girls, is the denim skirt. And they do not necessarily have to be of short length. Just Cavalli has a versatile collection of designer skirts in denim. Check out the indigo blue knee-length skirt that has a dark blue wash and is made out of soft denim fabric that’s extremely comfortable. The ultra-fitted skirt has fancy zip pockets at the sides, belt loops and attractive metallic seams right from the hip to the hem.

Pencil skirts that were worn in 1950’s by the sex siren Marilyn Monroe are still considered sexy till date and are often sported by celebrities such as Latin bombshell Jennifer Lopez. You will find pencil skirts of different fabrics designed by Burberry.
Pencil skirts in fabrics such as wool, leather, cotton and corduroy are offered in basic hues like black, brown, white, beige, etc. Or you could even opt for an unusual colour with the Burberry khaki green pencil skirt. A chic skirt with a back slit that hits above the knees. The vertical piping in a contrast shade produces an illusion of a lean figure.
Dolce & Gabbana
Skirts from the fashion house of Dolce & Gabbana are a perfect blend of elegance and modern style. Exude grace with a Dolce & Gabbana wool lace skirt in brown. This A-line mid-length skirt with a floral pattern all over is a lovely option for formal occasions like a sit-down dinner. A-line skirts have been around since decades and are regarded as fashion classics.
You would come across several skirts but it’s important to choose the right skirt that suits your body type. For example, women with an hourglass frame must try A-line skirts which are slightly flared so that the curves are accentuated in the right manner. Those with a pear shaped figure must opt for darker colours to shift attention from the hips and avoid big pleats or large prints.
Take a careful trial of the skirts you like so that there’s no room for error and take your pick.
