31 Days Closer to a Cuter You! "Skirting the Issue"

My lovely "skirted" niece ~
 I wear skirts far more often than dresses. Skirts give you a lot of fashion mileage as you are able to create more options with separates. 
If you are a fan of THE SKIRT, this is your summer because skirts are "in" ~ as if they were ever out. 

General guidelines for choosing skirts to flatter your figure ~ 

  • H/b/rectangle ~ try a bubble skirt to create curves: click HERE and HERE

H, O, Inverted Triangle

  •  O/apple ~ shorter A-line, or ruffled for volume, flouncy: click HERE

  • Inverted triangle ~ click HERE

  • A/d/pear ~ A-line skirt: click HERE
  • X/hourglass ~ pencil skirt: click HERE
