What are skirts?
A skirt is an article of clothing that hangs from the waist and covers the lower part of the body.
It is usually worn by women and girls although, in some cultures, men wear skirts. They are very versatile and are capable of enhancing the wearer’s femininity, making her look more sophisticated and stylish.
Types of skirts for women include:
Ruffled fabrics or ruches are arranged on top of each other to create these types of skirts. They are suitable for layering your lower body and as such fit apple and rectangular body types. They are otherwise known as tiered skirts.
An asymmetrical skirt has an unbalanced hemline. It has varying lengths for both sides. For instance, the left side could be longer than the right side. It is suitable for all body types and is a great choice for casual occasions.
These ones, as the name implies, have pleats. Pleats are folds that take up the excess fabric. They also add controlled fullness and freedom of movement to the garment. There are many types of pleats that differ in their construction and appearance. Most pleated skirts have permanent pleats that don’t require you to iron whenever you wash.
Pencil skirts have permanent pleats that don’t require you to iron whenever you wash.
Pencil skirts are very popular among women. They are a great choice for working-class ladies. These types of skirts are basically cut straight down to any length and taper inwards at the knee.
Everything old is new again and that’s the beauty of fashion. Everything will eventually make its way back into style. The ruffle or tiered skirt, whether mini, midi or maxi, is a very beautiful way of adding flair and a bit of drama to your style.
