#3 Inverted Triangle body shape

As the very name of this body shape suggests, it is one which upper half of the body (shoulders, breasts) is wider than the lower half (hips, booty). If you have such body type, you need to equalize in a way the width of both parts of your body. You can do this by wearing straight skirts, pleated skirts, or even skirt-pants.

#4 Apple body shape

Women with such body type are often afraid that whatever kind of skirt they put on, it will not look good on their body figure. In fact, this is not true. They only need to choose a skirt which will accentuate on their waist.

As the name suggests, women with such body shape have wider hips and booty, and smaller shoulder and breast area. If you have such type of body, you need to make sure you do not wear skirts which will accentuate on the lower part of your body, because they would make you look like having even wider hips and booty. The type of skirts which you should wear instead are straight skirts, A-line skirts, and dirndl skirts. They will suit your body perfectly, hiding what you do not want to be exposed and showing what you want to be.
