The View: Finding A Skirt To Fit Your Frame
Kate Dimmock of People StyleWatch came on the show today to help women out with a very common problem: finding a skirt for your body type. Some of the viewers walked to runway to showcase their body type to show us how to pick dresses for just about any body type.
The View: Boden Skirt Review
When finding a skirt for your body type when you are curvy, you have to consider your small waist and considerable real estate in the back. Kate Dimmock showed us a skirt from Boden that accentuates a small waist and hugs the body all the way down to the knees. It starts at your smaller waist and cinches you into the skirt, showing off your curves.
The View: Bar III Skirt Review
Finding a skirt for your body type when you have a tomboyish figure has you working with not much of a waist and a boxier frame that goes straight up and down. You need a skirt that will create curves and details around your waist for you. Kate showed us a skirt for Bar III that did just that.
The View: Vince Camudo Skirt Review
Finding for a skirt for your body type when you are plus-size actually means that you might fall under different body types within the realm of plus size. What you will want to do is find something that is specific to your type of plus size to accentuate your good spots. To show an example of this, Kate showed off a Vince Camuto skirt that hugged the model’s frame down to the knee, much like the Boden piece we saw earlier.
The View: ZARA Skirt Review
Finding a skirt for your body type when you are petite means, once again, that you can fall under a few different body types under the umbrella of petite, but there are a few things to look out for. You want to look for tailored pieces that are a little shorter in length, around mid-thigh so as to get you a longer leg. They found a skirt at ZARA for this piece.
The View: Tinley Road Skirt Review
Pear shaped bodies have a larger bottom, but aren’t as voluptuous on top. To find a skirt for your body type, the skirt should glide over the waist and hit around the mid-thigh area, along with a neutral color to send some attention up top and balance out your frame. They used a Tinley Road skirt on this model.
