One is like no other: skirts always make the grade
There are many opportunities to wear skirts in any season. Summer is the peak season for skirts, but there is no good reason to avoid wearing a skirt in winter. There are so many beautiful autumn and winter skirts in warmer materials like woollen fabric. Additionally, we have smart tights and leggings to keep your legs warm.
In a skirt you are properly dressed for every occasion. From relaxed to official, casual to glamorous – thanks to a vast range of designs, patterns, prints and glittering detail, women’s skirts are always the perfect combination. Which one suits you best? We have a few tips for you.
Mini, midi, maxi – how much leg do you want to show?
The length of the skirt must be the first thing you look for. There are three different lengths of skirt:
- Mini: the short one. The length of this skirt varies from mid-thigh to just above the knee. For bewitchingly long legs. Jeans skirts or leather skirts are a classic.
- Midi: the golden middle. Knee-length or calf-length, for traditional outfits – a good choice for every woman.
- Maxi: the long one. It reaches at least down to the ankle, sometimes it touches the back of your feet. Women's skirts with a feminine touch. Wear them with sandals or ballerinas, as worn by tall women who want to look a little shorter.
A short skirt visually lengthens your legs and is very suitable for shorter women, while long designs can work the other way. A swinging midi-length skirt suits most women: The skirt ends where the legs are particularly slim and deftly covers chunky thighs.
A mere formality: which skirt suits which figure?
We can tell you this much: there is something for everyone. Let us begin with the least complex and most popular model, the A-line skirt. It is slightly flared and conjures-up wider hips and stronger thighs. Often available as a lively plate skirt.
You can conceal a belly with a higher-up waistband. The jean skirt with a waistband is a doubly good choice because the firmer material makes the belly appear flatter. Pencil skirts emphasise a feminine figure. Curves are favourable here, but with a flat stomach, because these women's skirts are figure-hugging. They reach down to the knee, sometimes even to the calf, therefore we recommend shoes with a heel. A slit facilitates walking and leg freedom. The pencil skirt is a favourite for getting down to business. Together with a blouse and elegant pumps, it creates the perfect office look.
A maxi skirt will help hide buttocks, thighs and sturdier calves. A lot of flowing fabric plays around your legs without them showing through. The concealing effect is also suitable if you feel your legs are too thin.
If you are slender and skinny then you will suit mini skirts well. Shorter women love the mini skirt, because it lengthens the legs.
Stylish combination: which tops to wear with your skirt?
The type of top depends on the occasion. And the women's skirt you want to wear it with. A particularly beautiful figure is created by mixing different shapes, which gives it contour: tight-fitting or straight skirts are worn with a wide top, which you casually tuck into the waistband. With the skirt on display, choose a body-hugging top. Particularly slim women can also wear an oversize jumper with a wide maxi skirt.
Among our favourites in the department of loose tops for women's skirts, are
- Blouses for elegant functions

And on top? These jackets can be paired with women’s skirts
You can’t go wrong with cropped jackets. They go with short skirts just as well as with longer styles. Because they usually end at the waist and provide a break. We love short blazers, jeans jackets or varsity jackets. In winter, a thick quilted coat will look good with a short skirt or a long, flowing one.
