A Look at Women's High Waisted Skirts

Nov 17th 2015 at 9:51 PM

Women’s high waisted skirts have become a hot fashion trend over the last few years. The skirt, which sits above the waist as its name suggests, makes the waist look flatter and accentuates the hips. It has suddenly become a favourite item among girls’ wardrobes as it has started ruling the runways once again and more and more celebrities are showing off the style. What has been behind this upsurge is the simple fact that skirt lets a girl look stylish and elegant without much effort. Moreover, if worn right, every woman looks great in a high waisted skirt.

These skirts are available in two distinct styles: fitted and flared. Fitted ones hug the body and are amazing for indoors, office, formal events and parties while the flared one can be worn just about anywhere. Another aspect is the length of the skirt, and most can be grouped into three categories: short, knee length and long. Again, each cut is suitable for different occasions with the knee length continuing to be a perennial favourite among office goers.

Types of fitted skirts

•    Bandage skirts: The skirt appears to have been made of different strips (hence the name) that have been put together to make a garment. This strip designs of the skirt falls from the waist to the knee or above it. This unique pattern was introduced by a French designer Hervé L. Leroux.

•    Fitted miniskirts: This is the shorter version of the skirt that ends above the knee and hugs the body contours.

•    Pencil skirts: Shorter slim-fitting skirts that go from the waist up to the knee. The skirt was introduced by Christian Dior in his 1954 Autumn Winter collection and has never gone out of fashion since.

•    Tube skirts: This is the longer version of the pencil skirts which go up to well below the knee. Both the pencil and the tube are ideal for thinner women.

•    Tulip skirts: These have a cinched waist, extra folds of fabric at the hips and a tapering hemline at the bottom. As the name suggests, the skirts resemble an inverted tulip

Types of flared skirts

•    A-line skirts: Looks like the capitalised A of the alphabet and have a slight flare at the bottom.

•    Bell skirts: These skirts look like a church bell though they don’t flare out immediately from the waist as the cylindrical shape continues for some length below the waist

•    Circle skirts: The skirt is made of different circular sections stitched together to form a longer skirt

•    Full skirts: Longer versions of the high waist skirt with the fullness placed around the waistband

•    Pleated skirts: The pleats of the skirt do not make it appear too flared. One of the more common and earlier versions of the skirts which still looks good on any woman
