Ideal Skirt Shape for Spring – The Wrap

High street stores have a lovely selection of these skirt shapes available for you to add to your wardrobe from sophisticated work designs to daytime styles which can be worn with flats or heels. They can be worn with everything from a simple t-shirt to a blouse and a light weight knit to a blazer.

There are a few things to keep in mind though when purchasing a wrap skirt depending on your body shape. If you have shapely hips then opt for a darker coloured skirt like the Kearney from River Island and team with a patterned or printed top to balance out your proportions. For boyish shapes, create the illusion of curves by flaunting a style with clever ruching or draping detail. The Green Stripe Wrap Skirt from House of Fraser is a great example thanks to the graphic print and feminine folds of the garment.

For all those petite woman out there, you can get away with wearing a wrap skirt too! Just make sure the length is shorter and go for more of an a-line style to flatter and lengthen your lovely legs. Topshop`s Moroccan design will have you right on-trend for spring. The vivid colours are gorgeous plus the strip of black faux leather gives the skirt a hint of contemporary flare.
