Choosing a Skirt for Your Body Shape

fall outfitThe combinations are endless for my all-time favorite fall outfit; skirts and knee-high boots. This look can be dressed up like I did here or for a casual look try a denim skirt and riding boots.

Choosing the right skirt to fit your body can be challenging. Luckily, I’ve laid out the basis in my Skirts for Your Shape graphic. Depending on your body’s shape, there a endless varieties of skirts to mix and match with boots to create your own fall go-to outfit.


Flare Skirts: BB Dakota //  Plaid //  Lush     High Waist Skirts: ASOS //  Boohoo //  Compania    Pencil Skirts: Max Studio  // Bar III  // Chapel Rose
Mini Skirts: BP Corduroy  // Blank NYC  // Necessary Objects

So what are the deets on my look?

It’s very lightweight and breathable, yet thick enough to keep you warm on those chilly days. While this skirt has some flare to it, I love the high waist to accentuate my natural waistline to create the illusion that I actually have curves (LOL!).

Knee-high boots aren’t for everyone. If you have shorter legs, I suggest to steer clear of this style and opt for a bootie to elongate your legs. For those longer legged gals, these boots have some stretch in the calf. I always struggle with finding a boot to fit my calf. I don’t even have big calves, yet some styles are just near impossible to fit into. And for $34.90, you really can’t beat the quality of these bootsboots (I just ordered them in taupe too!).

Now Payless has this bad rep for being a “cheap” shoe store. The people who think this are mostly those who haven’t stepped foot inside one in the past decade. I absolutely adore Payless! And with one of my favorite designers on board, Christian Siriano, I’m in heaven. I get tons of compliments on this handbag and when people learn I paid under $40 img_0988for it (there’s always a coupon code out there), they can’t believe it.

Does anyone else love that Old Navy now has jewelry on their website?! I’m a big online shopper so the fact they finally added this to their online store makes my life so much easier.
