Party Skirts for Every Figure
The holidays often mean parties, and you need the right skirts to wear to look and feel your best. Those parties may include dancing so you want to stay comfortable, or you may be looking to impress your boss or new friends or to make a good impression on your family members. The wrong skirt can make you self-conscious all night but the right skirt can add fun and flair to your outfit.
First start by choosing a skirt based on your figure. Some women mistakenly think that if they have a fuller figure, they should wear a fuller skirt so that it doesn’t hug their curves. A fuller skirt actually adds volume to your silhouette and can be the worst choice for a woman with curves.
A pencil skirt or something that slims you down is a better option. If you will be dancing and don’t want to wear a constricting pencil skirt, choose a cut that is just slightly loose or that has a slit in the back or front to make movement easier.
For those who are very slender, a fuller skirt can give you more shape and style overall. A full skirt is also good for parties as it seems more festive. You might also opt for a shorter skirt that shows off a bit of leg, but be cautious about skirts that are too short when attending an office party as you don’t want to appear immodest. Remember, you need to go back to work with your coworkers after the party is over, so always be mindful of how much skin you’re showing even at a holiday party.
Once you have the shape and cut in mind, you want to shop for material and pattern. A holiday party is a good time for fun and festivities, so forego your usual grey and black materials and designs and choose something more suited for a party. One good way to add some fun to a holiday skirt is to opt for a metallic finish or sheen. Gold and silver are perfect for parties especially around the holidays, and you can pair these with a darker sweater or shell and sweater set for a good look.
Ruffles and layers of tulle are also a good choice for a party skirt and these can add volume and give the material a bit of a swing. You may not wear many ruffles and layers of tulle for other times because the material and cut is so festive, but for a holiday party, it’s a perfect choice! Have some fun with your party skirts and shop around to choose the best cut for your figure and you’ll be the life of the party wherever you go!
