An hourglass figure features a proportional upper and lower body with a well-defined waistline. This is often considered the sexiest figure type. Check out these fall skirts for hourglass figures.

Don't hide your curvy hourglass figure in a loose, flowing skirt. Instead, choose skirts that hug your figure in all the right places.

Pencil skirts

Pencil skirts are really trendy -- and are ideal for a woman with an hourglass figure. For fall, look for skirts in deep colors and rich fabrics such as tweed and suede.

    A-line skirts

    For hourglass figures that are a little on the heavy side, select an A-line skirt with subtle pleating for fall. An A-line skirt that falls just above the knee can hide thick thighs and give the illusion of smaller calves.

    Style tips

      Partner your skirts with V- or scoop-neck tops that are fitted but not binding. Wrap-style blouses and sweaters are also great choices to show off your bustline. Add a simple belt to put the focus on your slender waist.

      Even if you're plus-size, if you have an hourglass shape, you shouldn't cover up your curves with baggy clothes. Loose-fitting clothes won't hide your weight -- they'll actually make you look bigger than you are. Wear clothes that fit right and skim over your fabulous, envied curves.
