I’m an hourglass shape. What are the best skirts for my body type?

We can’t skirt around it—picking the right piece to highlight your shape is no walk in the park! If you’re an hourglass shape looking for a new skirt, read on to see how to complement your curves. 


Here are the best skirts for an hourglass body type.

Skirts for hourglass shape

A+ for A-line

A true no-brainer for curves, A-line skirts sit at the waist and gently jut out with flouncy femininity. The effect? A silhouette that complements an hourglass shape to a tee. Tuck blouses and even basic tees into this style and reach for a pointed-toe flat or a shoe with a little bit of a heel to elongate the leg line.

Penciled In

When you’ve got (seriously enviable) curves, why hide them? Reach for a skirt that’s structured and clings to your figure. Bonus: Pencil skirts are a workwear favorite and always nail a polished look. Try a modern envelope-cut version with a fitted, wrap-front blouse for ultra waist-defining asymmetry.


That’s a (Maxi) Wrap

Ready for a little drama? Maxi skirts are a must-have for hourglass shapes and strike a balance between casual and glamorous. Try a maxi in a wrap cut to draw the eye across curvy hips and up to the waist. Knot your knit tee at the waist and add a moto jacket to take your maxi from summer into fall.

Don’t forget to tell your Stylist which of these hourglass-worshiping skirt styles piqued your interest for your next Fix!
