Whether you are a woman that has a career in business, is a student, or just wants to have fun, you must have the right skirt for the right occasion. Different types of skirts can easily be justified for different purposes; however, shopping for that perfect skirt for the perfect occasion can be another adventure in itself. Let’s explore different styles of skirts to fit your needs:
The everyday casual skirt
A casual skirt can be tailored into endless styles and cuts, but it generally comes down to the type of material which identifies it as casual versus business style or an evening skirt. When shopping for a casual skirt, remember the purpose for where you might wear the skirt. Will you be at a barbeque on a hot summer day? Will you be going on an afternoon date to an outside concert? Most women’s clothing stores carry casual skirts, and you should have no problem finding the skirt that fits your lifestyle or occasion you are seeking a skirt for. They can be played up for that special afternoon, worn with heels or sandals, jean jackets or cardigans, worn with t-shirts or blouses, belted or free flowing!
When shopping for skirts for work there are some important factors that one must keep in mind. Most businesses have a dress code for their employees. Naturally, you will want to be acquainted with your works dress code standards prior to shopping. The key indicator here is usually length, and a good rule of thumb is no shorter than a hands length above the knee. Like the casual skirt, the work skirt can be in various different patterns, styles and cuts, however; work skirts are typically known for being tailored and having solid colors or simple patterns. The material is generally a cotton blend, wool or polyester, but is not limited to these types of materials.
Night Out or Special Occasion Skirts
Shopping for a skirt for a night out or special occasion can very fun and exciting. The materials and colors for a night out skirt can be limitless. Generally speaking, a skirt for a night out is one that you want to show a little more skin, and show a little more of your personality by choosing vibrant colors and materials that pop. Planning an evening out is usually for fun, and you want to dress accordingly. However, a night skirt is not always about pizazz and glitter. Some restaurants and venues do have dress codes, and you should consider this prior to buying your dress for the evening or special occasion.
Skirts can be very interchangeable, and if worn with the right accessories, a work skirt can be played up for a night out or a casual skirt can be dressed up for a work skirt. Shopping for skirts that have basic features, such as solid colors, simple patterns or no patterns, and straight lines can be much more versatile than those with bright colors, bold patterns and unusual material. Remember when shopping for a skirt, that you may get more use out of it if you keep to the basics, and more use means more value for your buck!
