Tips and tricks for wearing a plus size skirt

The plus size skirt is a stylish and versatile piece that can complement any wardrobe in style.

Despite this, many hesitate to adopt it, fearing that it will not flatter their figure. However, there is no reason to deprive yourself of this iconic piece, whatever your age and body type.

So, from time to time, we avoid pants, jeans and dresses, and we dare to wear a skirt!

In this article, I will try to give you good reasons to wear a plus size skirt. How to wear it with confidence and what pieces to mix it with to create stunning outfits.

Why dare to wear a plus size skirt?

Style and self-confidence:

The plus size skirt can be a major asset for your self-confidence. By choosing the right cut and length, you can highlight your curves while feeling comfortable, elegant and feminine.

Versatility and adaptability:

Whatever the occasion, the skirt can be tailored to your style. From office to casual weekends, from telecommuting to chic evening, it offers a variety of options to create different looks throughout the moods and moments of your life.

How to wear your skirt?

Choosing the right length:

It is often considered that long or midi skirts are flattering on plus size figures. It is true that they lengthen the silhouette and add a touch of elegance. However, the length mostly depends on your personal preference. AtLes Militantes , we will always encourage you to choose models in which you feel good, even if it goes against fashion dictates.

Find the right fit:

It is said that flared or A-line skirts can be more flattering on the hips and thighs, while straighter or slit skirts emphasize curves. Try different styles and decide what suits you best.
And don't forget to choose elasticated waists for absolute comfort. Being comfortable in your clothes, not feeling too tight or stuffy, is the ultimate secret to self-confidence.

Combine with style: 1 skirt, 3 looks

For an office outfit, pair your plus size skirt with a blazer and heels. A pair of tights in winter and presto, a simple and effective look for a working girl ready to face a day of work with confidence.

We recap: what to mix the plus size skirt with?

The hights :

Shirts, t-shirts, sweaters, blouses. We add blazers or jackets.

The shoes :

Pumps, ankle boots, ballet flats, heeled sandals or flat sandals or even sneakers. Each pair of shoes will help you create a different style, matching your mood of the day.

Don't forget the accessories:

Opaque or semi-opaque tights in winter. Shorties in summer to prevent thighs from rubbing... And above all: belts , necklaces, bracelets, earrings, clutches, baskets, handbags... All these accessories can provide a final and unexpected touch to your outfit.

In conclusion

With a floral, leopard or geometric print... Plain, red, black, purple... pleated or not... fluid in cotton or viscose... in crepe or smoother (we avoid polyester for electricity static)... whatever the options, and for all body types, the plus size skirt offers a multitude of possibilities to express your style, giving you self-confidence and elegance, a little glamor and a lot of femininity. The skirt remains a must-have in women's fashion. Feel free to experiment with different cuts, lengths and combinations to discover what you like best.

Ultimately, the key is to wear your skirt with confidence and pride, whether dressed up or down, because that's what will always make you beautiful and unique.

So, will you bring a skirt into your wardrobe and make it an essential basic?

Vous m’avez convaincue de porter la jupe, version les Militantes …. Quelle sensation d’’ampleur et de fluidité des tissus précieux et chatoyants!
C’est la (re)découverte d’une féminité mise à mal après des dizaines d’année de port du pantalon !
