To make it easy for you, I have listed my Top 8 Types of skirts that are a must for your wardrobe.
One more peculiar thing is that skirts never really go out of fashion and time again it comes back in different formats like:
- Skirt with top
- A skirt with crop top
- Skirt with Kurti
- Skirt with long top
- Lehenga skirt
- Shirt with a Skirt
- Skirt Dress
The pairing and style changes but Skirt remains constant. So here are my top 8 picks. Let me know how many of these do you own 😉 .
Because of its long and fitted shape, it’s called Pencil Skirt. Goes perfectly well for formal as well as casual attires. The fitting and shape make it perfect for curvy body types. Just throw in a loose shirt, crop top, or a blazer depending on what you like more, and voila the fashionista is ready to slay.
2. Box Plate Skirt:
This type of skirt can be short as well as long. The box plate gives it a nice texture of running across or boxes look depending on the plate style used for switching. A short box plate shirt goes well for casual attires. Whereas the long box plate skirt can be paired to give a nice Indo-Western look that one can carry even at weddings or family gatherings.
3. Mini Skirt:
Whenever someone says Mini Skirt the first thing that comes to my mind is Miss Braganza from Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. These hot, trendy skirt type has always been in fashion. What you pair with it might change. But miniskirts remain the same. It’s always safe to have one solid colour mini skirt in your wardrobe.
4. Draped Skirt:
This is the must for people whose size keeps changing. Few of us are losing and gaining weight so frequently that our waist size keeps changing. In such a case or otherwise having a drape around the skirt is a blessing. You can also share it with your girlfriends of different sizes. This skirt can be described as “One skirt, many uses”.
5. Palazzo Skirts:
There is a hemstitched in the middle making it resemble like a pant kind stitching. The Palazzo skirts go well for traditional as well as western wear. The difference lies in whether you wear it with a short kurta or long kurta or a crop top. This skirt is very much in fashion today and can be worn in multiple ways.
6. Layered Skirt:
There are usually different types of skirts for different age groups. But this one is worn by everyone. A layered skirt gives a nice airy, flowy look and goes well with a plain top. It can make you stand out at any event or occasion and looks stunning. Generally, there are at least 3 layers in the skirt but the layers increase depending on the size and flare one wants.
7. Asymmetric Skirt:
The skirt whose length is not defined and is not similar across all the edges is known as “Asymmetric skirts”. Its trendy, chic, and casual. You can have a long skirt from the back, and a short skirt looks from the front. In 2 words, I can describe this as “Versatile and casual”. This skirt is perfect for evening events and brunches and can be worn in different textures and patterns.
8. Long Flared Skirt:
My all-time favorite. Whether it’s Shraddha Kapoor in Aashiqui 2, Kajol in My Name is Khan, or Kareena Kapoor in Golmaal 3, long flared skirts have always been in fashion and the trendiest of the lot. You can wear it with a skirt, Top, Kurta, etc and it gives you an entirely different look. Perfect for a fashionista to mix and match and always create new looks with the same skirt.
