Types of Skirts All Women Need

Skirts are a must-have item for any woman. Whether you prefer elegant outfits or casual outfits, skirts should be included in your wardrobe essentials list.

Check out the 9 types of skirts list we’ve made and then select the ones you love the most and that will make you look the best!

  1. A-Line Skirts

Wider at the hemline than at the waistline, A-Line skirts look good on all body shapes. They can be as long or as short as you want them to be and they can be worn in both casual and elegant circumstances as long as the length and the fabric are appropriate.

  1. Straight Skirts

Fitted around the waist and the hips and then going down in a perfectly straight line. They are a bit loose around the knees and from the knees down. They are less formal than the pencil skirts but they can be integrated in a business outfit. Straight denim skirts are great for casual-chic outfits.

  1. Flared Skirts

These skirts are a combination between the straight skirts and the A-Line skirts. They are fitted around the waist and hips and instead of going straight down like the straight skirts, they are flared at the bottom. Long flared skirts can look good in evening outfits if the fabric and the style are appropriate, but they are most common in boho outfits.

  1. Pencil Skirts

Fitted from top to bottom, these skirts are the go-to skirts for business women who love to wear skirt suits at the office of shirt-skirt ensembles.

  1. Tube Skirts

These skirts are similar to pencil skirts. They are designed in the same way but they are made of stretchy fabric that makes them a good fit for casual or sporty-casual outfits.

  1. Pleated Skirts

Vertical pleats from top to bottom, these skirts are usually above the knee or under the knee and they are a great fit for a chic casual outfit.

  1. Wrap Skirts

These skirts are made of large fabric designed to be tied around the waist. They are easy to wear, comfortable and they usually look good in casual outfits.

  1. Mini Skirts

Everybody knows what a mini skirt is and how it looks like. There are, of course, length variations women can choose from when creating an outfit around a mini skirt. Great for not-formal nights out or in casual outfits, these skirts look good with kitten heels or flats.

  1. Circular Skirts

These types of skirts are flowy and fun to wear in casual outfits. They are feminine and chic and they are great in spring or summer outfits. Women who are into DIY can make a circle skirt in no time. In order to make them, a large circle is cut out of a sheet of fabric. To create the waist line, a smaller circle is cut out in the center.
