I’ve recently bought a patterned maxi skirt. What to pair it with to make the look appealing?
Maxi skirts are ultra flattering, but they can also be a bit overwhelming and bulky depending on the fit. Make sure you balance the silhouette with a fitted top – a plain tank top or a cotton t-shirt for a more relaxed casual look for example. A maxi skirt can also elongate the silhouette, but only if you keep your tops short or cropped. What’s more – patterned maxi skirts look stunning when teamed up with solid color tops which let the pattern shine.
I find mini skirts really appealing, but they seem to make the silhouette shorter. Any tips?
Midi skirts are classic pieces with a lot of femininity, but since the hem falls below the knee, they tend to shorten the silhouette. You can easily sort it out by wearing high heels that will elongate the leg and make you look taller. Opt for heels (or boots in the cold season) which are low-cut and have a pointed toe for a more elongating effect. And don’t give up on midi skirts as they’re ultra flattering!

How to care for a leather skirt?
Leather is a tricky material which needs proper care, but with a few tips, you can maintain your skirt in a perfect condition. To eliminate wrinkles iron it on low heat (put a piece of tissue paper on the skirt first) or hang it in the bathroom while showering. Keep your skirt out of direct sunlight to prevent fading and use leather conditioner or mink oil to keep the garment from cracking. For spot-cleaning use a damp cloth, but consult a professional dry cleaner for more serious stains and a regular polish. To store it professionally, use a garment bag and keep your skirt in a clean, dry and cool place.

I have an apple-shaped body. What skirts would make me look good?
Ladies with an apple-shaped body, which means slim lower parts and slender legs, but a full midsection, look great in high-waisted flowy skirts. This fit makes the body look more proportionate thanks to the waistband, which hits the slimmest part of the body, and the flared bottom, which masks the mid-section. Make sure the skirt falls above your knees and shows off your slender legs. Also, skirts with embellished bottoms and hemlines will draw eyes to this particular part and away from the problematic stomach area.

It’s also very versatile – wear it to the office with a sleek button-down or for a girls’ night out with a sequin top.

What’s exactly a tulip skirt?
A tulip skirt is a variation of a pencil skirt. The shape resembles a tulip - it has a narrow waist and bottom hemline, but more volume around the hips (thanks to folds or plats). A tulip skirt is a closet staple for tall and lanky women with a boyish silhouette as it makes their figure look more feminine and shapely. Also, ladies with an hourglass body shape benefit from it – their body looks even more feminine with a defined waist and curvy hips.
