Find your best Plus Size Flare Skirt
Flare skirts are fashionable but for plus size women, they can be a concern especially if you don't want to add any extra bulk when dressing. However, you can still look flattering if you know how to shop and get a skirt that will fit you in the best possible way.
The first thing when shopping for a flare skirt in plus size is to get one in fabric that is not too heavy because heavy fabrics will add bulk to your frame. You should choose lighter fabrics that tend to drape over your form though it should not be too sheer or clingy because then it will not be too flattering. It may reveal the lumps and bumps that you would like to keep covered up. However, you can choose a skirt in either of these fabrics as long as the length is right. For example tweed is considered as a heavy fabric and if you would like a tweed flare skirt, then choose one of a shorter length rather than longer so as to achieve a balanced look. A flared skirt in sheer fabric is better suited to be long as opposed to short.
You should also shop for a skirt that is of the most flattering length. If you want to look slimmer and taller, choose a flare skirt that ends at the thinnest part of your legs whether it is short or long. Your flare skirt should end mid thigh or just below the knee or at the calf because these are typically the slimmest areas of the legs. If you are petite, shorter skirts are best because the more leg you show, the taller and slimmer you look.
If you are tall and plus size, you can wear long or short skirts but experiment to find what length of flared skirt suits you best. The best plus size flare skirts are those that are not too heavily pleated or too flared as this may add bulk to your figure. Also darker colours are more flattering but do not be put off trying lighter coloured flared skirts. To look sleek in an outfit, ensure that you wear different volumes of clothes so as to provide a balanced look in your whole outfit.
It is best to wear a fitted plus size blouse or top with a flared skirt so that you look balanced and therefore slimmer. You might wear top of the same colour even if it is of a different shade and tone. This is because it will make you look slimmer because the same colour draws one long line from the top to the bottom which makes you look taller and slimmer. Plus size flare skirts with elastic bands tend to be for more casual affairs while those with a waistband look more formal and are appropriate for work. Don not forget to wear most appropriate sandals or shoes as well to complete your look.
