The A-line skirt is an essential “key piece” for anyone’s wardrobe. Christian Dior first coined the A-line skirt in the 1950s when he used this style in his collection. This type of skirt is fitted at the waist and then gradually widens down in the shape of an A. Comfortable and elegant, the A-line skirt suits all body types by extenuating your waist and minimizing the look of your upper thighs. Some A-line skirts can be short, medium or long in length depending on how much of your leg’s you wish to reveal. Also there are many different patterns, colors and fabric’s one can choose from.

The A-line skirt is a perfect look for this sizzling hot summer. What’s great about A-line skirts is that they flow down slightly sticking out giving you room to move your legs. This A-Line skirt can be worn at any occasion whether it’s to the park, a date, an event or a party. Dress the A-line skirt up or down with either a blouse or basic white t-shirt or tank and pair it with heels, sandals, flats or gladiators. I love to wear my black A-line skirt with a white crop top and wedge heels.

Key Hint: When trying on a variety different A-line skirt’s check to see if you can slip one or two fingers between your waist and the A-line skirt. You want to make sure there is enough room to tuck in shirts if needed and also so that you can sit down comfortably without the skirt clinching your waist.
