Skirts for All

“This summer the dress and the skirt are extremely important,” says BRIGITTE fashion editor Melanie Grefer.
The expert explains what lengths and shapes are required, which shoes fit and how strong legs or calves look best.

What skirt lengths are required?

With the Rocklängen everything is there, you have the free choice. You can not decide? Then just take all four variants!
Mini skirtnew and fashionable: best combined with voluminous tops. Play with proportions and silhouettes. Ballerinas or flat sandals are suitable for this. High shoes to the mini act quickly cheap. If you want, combined with a legging.

Pencil skirtnarrow and tight:It reaches to the knee or even to the calf center. This is combined with a voluminous, elegant top and high, simple pumps, slingpumps or-completely new peeptoe(with visible toe) or a high heel with wedge heel. Very slim women can also wear a tight top to the narrow, long skirt. Great when the waist is highlighted by a wide belt.

Tulip shape/O-formnarrow in the waist, wide in the middle and back closer to the hemline: A similar balloon-like top or a narrow silhouette matches the tulip shape.Important: To emphasize the waist with a wide belt. Delicate, high sandals or high heels with a wedge heel look great.
Flared, A-line or plate skirt:Wear it best with a shirt blouse or a similar voluminous top. Again, the waist should be emphasized. The new short ankle boots(ankle boots) look good.

What clothes does woman wear?

Dresses are available in all variations. For women beyond the teenager, the elegant wrap dress à la Diane von Fürstenberg offers. Fits perfectly to any figure and looks very feminine. The dress has a long or at least a short sleeve and reaches just over the knee.

Super-fashionable is also the mini dress in A-line shape and Sixties look, often with Retromustern.

There are also many jack-and-shift dresses and shift dresses. Beside the shirt blouse dresses, Babydoll and Empire dresses, and divine caftans for glamorous risers.

What to do with strong legs?

Tip with strong calves or legs: wear shoes with heel, stretch the leg and make it look narrower. Be careful with ankle straps and sandals that wrap around the shackles. They emphasize strong shackles and shorten the leg optically. Also better off the mini skirt.

Who tends to varicose veins or broom rashes, can wear transparent tights. But never in open sandals!
