Fall skirts for your body type

Separates, such as skirts and sweaters, can make your fall wardrobe very versatile. However, every skirt isn't suited for every woman. Check out these fall skirts that are ideal for wedge-shaped figures.

A woman with a wedge-shaped figure has broad shoulders and narrow hips, so to balance your silhouette, fuller skirts are preferred. If you're a wedge, avoid pencil skirts and other skirts that cling to your body.

Fall skirts for your body type

Floral skirt

Florals aren't just for spring -- you can wear them throughout the fall. Floral patterns and other prints will draw the attention away from your upper body, so they're perfect for wedge-shape figures.

    Slit skirt

    Long skirts with thigh-high slits will also balance a wedge-shaped body. Plus, these skirts are sexy and fun.

    Style tips

      When looking for the right tops to partner with your skirts, remember that you don't want anything that makes your shoulders look broader than they are. Avoid halter and boatneck tops, as well as any jackets or sweaters with shoulder pads. Simple V-neck tops, on the other hand, are a fabulous choice. Also consider wearing a long necklace, which will draw the focus toward the lower body, helping to balance out your figure. If you're going to wear a belt, wear it slung low on your hips rather than directly at your waist.
