Long skirts made of firm fabric with folds make the waist look slim. Pleated skirts have many pleats and are ideal if you want to create length. Other variants are women's skirts with one fold or with a few box pleats.
Culottes were originally a trend in the 90s. This garment combines the cut of a pair of trousers with a women's skirt.

Elegant or sporty culottes make great winter companions if you wear them with a roll neck jumper.

Mini skirts and short skirts
In summer, a mini skirt is the ideal piece of clothing to show off your sun-tanned legs. If the skirt reaches just above the knee, it can also be worn to the office. Subtle colours and fine materials are ideal for a business appropriate look. If you don't want to do without a short skirt in winter, choose a denim skirt or a skirt made of wool and wear tights underneath.
When women's skirts are calf-length or reach just below the knee, they are called midi skirts. They are great for all occasions for which mini skirts are too revealing. Midi skirts stylishly emphasize your feminine side. Elegant midi-length women's skirts can be combined perfectly with blouses or silk tops.
Long women's skirts are ideal if you want to cover up your legs completely while still enjoying the comfort of a skirt. Maxi skirts can be worn on almost all occasions and they are also a great choice for older women.
Women with a few extra pounds should choose a skirt in the right size and shape. Curvy women look fabulous in an A-line skirt. Due to the flared shape, the waist looks slimmer. This effect can also be achieved by wearing a belt. Beautiful women's skirts in XL and long skirts in XXL are enhanced by a fitted top or shirt and create a pretty silhouette.
If you want to conceal a tummy, both a pull-on skirt and A-line skirt are the perfect choice. Skirts with an elasticated waistband are particularly comfortable when you carry a little extra weight around the tummy. Figure-flattering skirts for women can be combined well with loosely flowing blouses.
Short denim skirts make great all-rounders to wear in your leisure time. They go well with a sporty top or with a pretty blouse. On warm days, short skirts made of linen or cotton are ideal. If you want to cover up your legs, you can also wear a long skirt in summer, but then you should pay particular attention to the lightness of the material the skirt is made of.
For the office or formal events it's important that a skirt is not too short. For these type of occasions black knee-length or calf-length skirts are a good choice. Combine with a blazer or a classy blouse to create an elegant business outfit.
Woollen skirts go very well with lined and warm boots. They come in many colours and patterns. If you like to wear over knee boots, you can also opt for a short skirt made of wool. Summer boots in bright colours look great with denim skirts or skirts made of lightweight fabrics.
When your wardrobe is full of calf-length and short skirts that you'd like to wear throughout the winter as well, simply combine them with a pair of warm tights. Knitted and wool skirts are also a good choice for winter. Soft wool ensures a comfortable fit. An alternative is leather skirts, which look lovely with warm boots.
If you want to accentuate your femininity with an A-line skirt, wear it with a fitted top. Do you want to conceal your hips? In this case, a loose blouse is the right choice. Furthermore, loose-fitting tops look elegant with narrow pencil skirts, while fitted tops look feminine and attractive.
Mini skirts make a casual summer outfit together with airy tops. For a fashionable look, you can wear a pleated skirt with a fitted blouse. Fitted tops are recommended with culottes and create a beautiful silhouette. In winter, a warm jumper or a roll-neck sweater with a circle skirt is a perfect ensemble to show off your feminine side. Moreover, muted colours are not a must – even in winter you can dress colourfully, for example in a dark green corduroy skirt and a patterned blouse.
