How to Find the Right Pencil Skirt for Your Body Type

That’s where we come in.

Pencil skirts are great—when they’re done right. And admittedly, the biggest challenge is finding one that flatters your body. That’s where we come in. Whether you’re teeny tiny or shaped like Jessica Rabbit, here’s the best style for you to try.

If You’re Petite...Try a High-Waist Pencil Skirt

Chances are if you’re under five-foot-five, you shy away from anything knee- or calf-length for fear of looking shorter, but a high-waist number actually has the opposite effect. Your waistline will look like it starts higher than it really does, which adds length to your lower body and makes you look taller. 

If You’re Tall...Try a Pencil Midi Skirt

Opt for a pencil midi skirt if you want your legs to look even more miles-long. It fits slim through the hips, but instead of cutting you off at the knees, it elongates everything down to the mid-calf. Psst…this style looks amazing with a pair of on-trend kitten heels

If You’re an Hourglass...Try a Printed Pencil Skirt

Your proportions were basically made for this body-skimming style. Opt for a skirt in a bold print or unexpected material to accentuate your small waist and fuller hips.

If You’re Boyish...Try a Wrapped Pencil Skirt

For those of us who don’t have a va-va-voom waist-to-hip ratio, a wrap skirt should be your go-to. This style works because it defines your middle and uses an asymmetrical hem to create the illusion of having curves in all the right places.
