Let’s talk about s…kirt! This very feminine item should be worn way more, by everybody! Flared, mini, long, casual or chic, the skirt is awesome for all occasions, since there is a variety of cuts that enhances each silhouette. Do you know what suits you best?

 

SKATER SKIRT

As its name suggests, ice-skating made this skirt famous. Sonja Henie was wearing that type of skirt when she won a gold medal at the 1928 Winter Olympics! Obviously, at that time, the skater skirt was a bit longer. Since it’s neither too chic nor too casual, this type of skirt is suitable for many occasions!

The skater skirt is perfect to add volume to the lower part of your body, so it’s ideal for those who have large shoulders, since it helps to define the waist, it adds nice and feminine curves and it dissimulates love handles. Pretty amazing! The skater skirt looks really good with sneakers and a denim jacket. However, if you’re looking for something more elegant, it’s also perfect with a bodysuit and heels.

PENCIL SKIRT

During the 40s, the war effort lead to a slower production of textiles and accessories. That’s how the pencil skirt was born, with its simple and economic design. Today, its elegant and refined cut makes it perfect for the office, but we also like to wear it for special occasions, because of its gorgeous feminine vibe.

You probably wonder if this body-con skirt is appropriate for your silhouette. The good news is that the pencil skirt is a universally flattering garment that suits everyone! High waists create a lengthening effect, which is perfect if you want to look taller. For those with generous curves, this type of skirt defines your waist, so it makes your hips look smaller and highlights your buttocks. It’s a really great option! Simply wear it with a fitted tucked in top or a wider half tucked top to create a casual style.

MIDI SKIRT

The midi skirt dates from the 50s, a time where skirts and dresses were not too short nor too long. It’s mid-calf length and flared style can make you afraid to look a bit too retro. If you ask us, this vintage look is totally on point! But we still have to admit it: it’s not the easiest skirt to wear.

At MFMK, as you probably know by now, we’re not too fond of restrictions. You like challenges? The midi skirt is for you. If you’re tall and slender, it’ll be a bit easier to wear, but if you’re shorter, don’t let that hold you back! Wear high heels, go for high-waist styles and, most importantly, choose light fabrics. Finally, you can wear pretty much any kind of top with a midi skirt. Oversized sweaters, t-shirts or jackets will look great! Simply avoid long tops unless you put a belt on top to define your waist.

DENIM SKIRT

In our opinion, it deserves its own category. The jeans skirt should be a must-have in every wardrobe! Choose it well, and it will last for years, even decades! The classic skirt has a straight cut, medium blue shade and cut just above the knee. You will wear all year round, we promise!  

Like all good denim, its structured fabric creates a natural yet comfortable silhouette. Very flattering! Outfit-wise, the possibilities are endless. The famous Converse and tee duo for casual days can be swapped for a pretty black lace top and your heeled sandals for a night out in town. A really great buy.

MINI SKIRT

The famous mini skirt! When it fist hit the market, this short type of skirt shocked many people, including Coco Chanel who couldn’t believe that this garment was exposing the ugliest part of the human body… the KNEES! In the early 60s, women liberated themselves from many things, including the corset, and hair and skirts started to get shorter and shorter! Mini skirts really became a symbol of freedom. Does the fact that these skirts are making a comeback mean that women are craving more freedom? It definitely seems like a possibility!

What’s on trend right now? There are still many front button-up models as well as the famous schoolgirl skirt straight out of the Clueless movie. Just like Cher, we like to wear our mini with a top tucked in. It’s perfect to elongate the legs, even more if you go for high-waist styles!
