Skirting the issue

High-waisted, pencil, tulip or A-Line – Stylist Kathryn Whittaker tells us how we should wear it?

Published on January 25th 2008.

Skirting the issue

Ladylike chic is making a huge comeback this spring in the form of super sexy skirts. Yes, it’s time to de-fuzz those legs a little sooner than expected or opt for some of this season’s funky coloured tights. But what is a girl to choose? High-waisted, pencil, tulip or A-line? - It’s enough to get your knickers in a twist. So strike a feminine pose and take in my top four styles.

Pump up the Volume: This cute high-waisted, pleated number is perfect for those of you blessed with a narrow waist (£28.00 www.asos.com). Its grey, pinstripe design and full layers will give those of you with a more boyish figure plenty of volume on the thigh area and create a curvaceous shape. Great for making legs look slimmer.

Going Dotty: Dots are a big look for this spring and going dotty has never looked so good. This gorgeous tulip style skirt with bow detail (£75.00 French Connection) is perfect for those wanting to distract attention away from a fuller bust. The metallic finish will enlarge the bottom half, creating curves that even JLo would be proud of. Try it with a plain, low cut black shirt for a sexy and sophisticated option.

Sexy and Straight: The classic pencil skirt is back and stronger than ever. This spring ditch the black and go for a splash of bold colour. Team with some fine knitwear and a waistcoat for an alternative office look. This example is from LK Bennett and reduced to £69.00, it would make a perfect addition to any staple wardrobe.

Flirty Frills: Going girly and frilly with your skirts gets a grown up twist this spring as sophisticated tailoring is given a frivolous detail. Think ruffles and pleats added to classic lines and traditional tweeds with intricate stitching. This is a great way to add a feminine edge to your classic look and attract attention to the areas you want to be looked at. This eye-catching number is from Julian Macdonald’s Star collection at Debenhams and has the very un-designer price tag of just £40.00.

Top these looks off with killer heels, try Top Shop for some of the very best around, and silky tights, my favourites as I speak are from Next.

See you soon,
