Full-Skirts--007After years of domination by the skinny jeans, the long skirts finally have their moment and trust us; the voluminous ladylike silhouette is here to stay. Find out how you can stylishly attire in a full skirt and look sleek, sexy and sophisticated. The best part about the pick is that it hides larger thighs and makes your waist look tinier. Here are our 11 suggested ways to wear it right:

Hem Length: Pick the best lengths for you. If you are tall, pick a skirt that hits at or right below the knee. On the contrary, for the petite, a high-waisted style that hits above the knee works best. Avoid full length skirts as they can overwhelm your figure.

Material Girl: The material of the skirt can alter your overall look. Silky, satiny skirts can look quiet girly while stiff fabrics can look more modern. For fall, heavier fabrics such as leather or leather-look alike fabrics and wool will be in.

Fit and Flare: Pair the full skirt with a slim fitting top so that it balances out the volume of a full skirt. For a polished look, don’t forget to tuck in a t-shirt or slim fitting blouse. For a fun alternative, try a chunky sweater. Absolute no-no’s include boxy tops, full coats and jackets.

Vintage Inspired: The full skirt can fit into your retro theme when teamed with a feminine blouse and some prettyasos-full-skirt-198482_w1000 (1) plumps. To look truly glamorous, top the look with cat eye sunglasses and a framed handbag.

Leaner: If you want to look leaner, buy yourself a dark color skirt so that will camouflage the shape by making the area visually receding. Sometimes (most of the times) the full skirt adds volume which swallows your figure and has the opposite of the desired feminine result. In such times, cinch a belt on your waist and allow some fabric from the top to be seen from over the top of the belt. This will instantly have your curves back.

Petticoats: Give your full skirt that extra bit of volume by wearing a petticoat underneath. This will add fullness as well as keep it in shape. A little tulle or lace underneath can also give your look a seductive touch.

Casual vs. Formal: For a casual look, add tall boots to dress a cute jersey knit skirt. This is going to be perfect for the lady who needs to run around a lot. At work, the classic black skirt looks great with an animal printed top with some pop of color with complementing accessories. For a night out, try teaming the fun and flirty metallic skirt with a long sleeved blouse.

Playful Print with Solid Accessories: If you like patterns, stick to only one patterned clothing in your attire. Either have a patterned blouse or have a patterned skirt. In either case, the skirt with its bouncy shape would draw all the attention and be of central focus.

In fall, try it with a cropped turtleneck sweater. You just cannot go wrong with this one.

Go shorter: While traditional full skirts are mini-length or just below the knee or at the middle of the calf, the modern full skirts also include shorter versions that showcase a flash of the thighs. For colder months, throw a pair of tights under the short skirt and you are set to rock.

Go Floral: Pick a skirt that is printed with floral’s and take your look to the ultimate depth of feminity. Add a silk blouse and dainty pumps or go tough with a cropped leather jacket and a pair of ankle boots.

The fashionable long skirt is actually a re-emergence of a silhouette that was popular in the 1940s and 1950s and is incredibly on-trend. What’s your best tip for how to show off your ladylike side while remaining stylish in a full skirt?
