It used to be, back before women got the right to vote, that you were not a lady if you did not wear a dress or a skirt. When the “barefoot and pregnant” mentality went out, so did skirts! Women started asserting their rights and exercised them by changing fashion and wearing men’s pants. For a long time you were either wearing pants and seen as a supporter, or wearing a skirt and seen as an “old-timer”. There is one problem with this: women’s rights are great, but so are skirts!
The Ever-Flattering Skirt
One of the great things about skirts is that they are very forgiving. They can be worn with a number of different tops and by women of all sizes. Short skirts show off legs really well, while long skirts can lengthen the look of a woman’s body. If you have a dark skirt, short or long, it can be worn with a dressy top for work, or a casual top to go out. Skirts are also extremely comfortable and have become “in” thing for women’s fashion.
How To Choose
There are so many different options, how do you choose the right skirt for you? First of all, just like every woman should have a little black dress in her closet, so too should every woman have a dark skirt in her closet. A trendy dark skirt like the Query Striped Skirt by Animale can be paired with a blouse for work, or a funky t-shirt to go out with. The Black wing Bottom skirt is another perfect skirt to have in your closet. Its gauzy appearance keeps it from being too serious, while its stretchy material makes it extremely comfortable.
For another chameleon of a skirt, look for a Cargo skirt. Something like the Quatro Cargo Skirt by Animale or the Modern cargo Skirt by Surrealist can do a lot to liven up a dull wardrobe. For dressier skirts, look to the Zip Skirt. This skirt can be worn a number of different ways, and can give you a look that is either classy, flirty, professional, or a little of all three!
Remember: skirts don’t have to be avoided any longer. You can feel feminine, sexy, and strong wearing them!
