Skirt Type for Your Body

The leading customizable e-tailer eShakti - experts in finding the perfect fit! Knowing what flatters each body and what doesn't, they've shared 4 Tips for Choosing the Right Skirt Type for Your Body.

The unique (and handy!) thing about eShakti is that unlike all ready-to-wear bands, you can customize each eShakti garment to suit your needs. So if you know you like your skirt flared- that's an option! If you like your skirts at tea length - they can do that! You get the picture. eShakti is about creating a garment that is ideal for your body type.


Their tips are below along with a few suggestions for each body type.

Skirt Types

4 Tips for Choosing the Right Skirt Type for Your Body from eShakti

Long Thin Legs


Although your basic impulse may be to opt for a skirt that showcases those legs for days, a very stylish option is wearing a midi, or tea length skirt.  A skirt that falls below the knee and just above the ankle is incredibly classic, feminine and stunning, and if you have the long legs to pull it off, don't shy away from this silhouette!  (Pair with killer heels!)

Shorter Legs

Shorter legs means you get to wear shorter skits!  The ideal length for this body type is one that is cut right above the knee. Showing your knees will visually elongate your legs. A trendy flat and an edgy jacket will complete the look!

Wider Hips

This might sound counterintuitive - but to balance out wide hips wear pencil skirts, but be sure to chose those that are not too tapered at the hemline. And try wearing a statement necklace to draw attention to your upper body!

Narrow Hips

By wearing a full skirt you are visually adding volume below the waistline. This option works wonders if you are looking to visually add a few inches in the hip area. For extra effect, wear a thick belt to cinch in the waist!
