Sweet skirts for apple shapes

When shopping for new skirts this fall, consider your body type. Women with apple-shaped figures should avoid skirts that add bulk to their waist and midsection. Check out these fall skirts that are suited for apple body shapes.

Women with apple body shapes are often well-proportioned, but tend to carry weight around their waist and tummy. Apple body shapes need to avoid adding volume to the midsection, while emphasizing their legs and bustline. If you have an apple-shaped figure, these skirts help you look your best.

Flared skirts

Flared hemlines

Look for a skirt with a flared hem or interesting details on the bottom portion. For your body type, a skirt that is knee-length or few inches shorter is your best bet --  longer skirts can make you look frumpy.

Structured skirt

Simple, structured skirts that skim your body without clinging are ideal for the office. You don't want a breezy fabric for fall -- but a wool blend or another fabric with a touch of stretch is a fabulous choice. Stick with neutral, dark shades to camouflage any bulges in your midsection.

Style tips

Apple-shaped women can carry their weight at their waistline (often referred to as a diamond shape) or lower in their abdomen (sometimes called an oval shape). Though these body types are somewhat different, the style suggestions are still the same because both variations are generally both considered apple-shaped figures. To help your torso look longer and slimmer, wear an open-front cardigan or blazer rather than one that buttons up.
