Each year brings new and interesting fashion trends. For 2018, it is the turn of the skirt. After not being particularly popular for a few years, they are very much back in vogue. This post is all about finding great skirts for a curvier figure.
Regardless of your size, shape or sense of style, you should be able to find skirts that look good on you and are comfortable to wear.
Many women are surprised to learn that pencil skirts are a good plus-size choice. There is a tendency to think that because this cut hugs the figure they are not a good idea for the curvier woman. This is true, but importantly they are not clingy garments. They do not cut into the body, which means that pencil skirts do not create unsightly bulges.
Instead, a well-cut pencil skirt skims over the figure following the contours of your body, which has the effect of accentuating and enhancing your feminine curves. This year there are plenty of lovely pencil skirts available, including high-waisted, wrap and super long versions.

The right maxi skirt can also be very flattering and there are some really interesting ones available this year. Pleated and tiered ones look great when paired with a plain top. Adding texture is a great way to draw the eye and break up your silhouette.
If that sounds too fussy for you to wear, just choose a floral print or a textured fabric to create a similar effect.
Denim is a nice fabric for a skirt. It is durable and thick enough to keep its shape, which means that it always hangs well. Provided you choose the right one it can offer plenty of support and help to smooth out any bulges that you feel self-conscious about.
Chino skirts have similar benefits. They are a great alternative to wearing trousers or jeans. Shorter versions are ideal if you do not like wearing shorts, but still, want to feel cool.
If your weight tends to fluctuate, a wrap skirt is an excellent option. They make it really easy to get the fit right, even on days where you are carrying a lot of water and feel bloated. Drawstring waist skirts are another option that works well.
Linen is a lovely fabric. You really do feel cooler when you are wearing it. There are some lovely linen pencil skirts available. However, you are normally better off opting to buy one that is made from linen rich fabric rather than one that is 100% linen. They will keep their shape better and be easier to launder.
