How To Choose The Right Denim Skirt For Your Body Shape

Get your style cues from these celebrities


Not all of us have a personal stylist on speed dial, but it doesn't mean we can't master dressing for our body shape like A-listers do. With the recent retro fashion mood, the denim skirt has reemerged as a must-have staple among stylish fashionistas, and we're pretty sure this wardrobe staple is here to stay. 

So, which denim skirt style is right for you? Let's take a look at the celebrity examples below to find out.

1. If you have a boyish figure...

The slim and lanky Alexa Chung shows us how to dress for a boyish frame - add curves with a classic A-line skirt! Look for interesting details, like the zip accents on this Mango denim skirt.

2. If you're heavier on the bottom...

Get your style cue from Emma Roberts, who hid her flaws with a cute, flouncy skirt. The pleats and panelling of this Stella McCartney piece provide a flattering effect for pear-shaped figures.

3. If you're tall...

Show off your long frame in a midi skirt like Karlie Kloss - simply pair with a white tee and casual loafers for an off-duty look. We're loving the '70s vibe of this Madewell skirt.

4. If you're curvy...

Flaunt that hourglass figure in a stretch-denim pencil skirt! Kim Kardashian doubled up on denim with a loose shirt, and we think this 7 For All Mankind style will look equally chic with a silk button-up.

5. If you're petite...

Maximise your small frame by showing off your legs, like Selena Gomez. Go for a high-waist style like this Topshop piece and pair with a sexy bodysuit like Gomez for a sizzling party outfit!
