Wrap skirt:how to wear it?

For a few years now, skirts have come in all shapes and sizes. Among them, the wrap skirt is one of the essential pieces of our dressing room. With its asymmetrical and chic appearance, the wrap skirt is ultra feminine and adapts to most silhouettes.

Which wrap skirt to choose according to your morphology? What to wear with a wrap skirt? All the questions you ask yourself are in this article.

What is a wrap skirt?

There are different lengths of wrap skirts, short skirts, midi skirts and long skirts.

We recognize a wrap skirt very easily because it has no zippers and is presented as asymmetrical with one part of the skirt closing over the other part (on the front or on the side of the skirt).

There are straight ones, flying ones and many shapes! You'll even find pencil wrap skirts in leather.

On the print side, the variation is wide with checkered wrap skirts , polka dots, flowers etc.

Thanks to fashion designer Diane Von Furstenberg that we owe this skirt model since she created the wrap dress in the 1970s, a real must-have in women's dressing rooms. Faced with this enthusiasm, the wrap skirt quickly saw the light of day and was able to seduce thanks to its less strict look than most existing cuts.

Wrap skirt, for which morphology?

The wrap skirt is the perfect skirt that will suit almost all body types. Whether you are round or thin, tall or small, its cut is very flattering. The only advice we will give you is to avoid this type of skirt if you have a belly because its high waisted appearance close to the body will highlight the unsightly curves of the waist.

Here is which wrap skirt to choose according to your morphology :

  • If you have an H body type (thin hips, slender figure, low waist):the wrap skirt is made for you. Choose a printed model and a rather fluid material or fabric.
  • If you have an X-shaped body type (slim figure and waist, shoulders and hips aligned):choose a model that crosses at the front rather than on the side and opt for a high waist.
  • If you have an O body shape (wide hips, luscious chest):try the pencil wrap skirt and opt for dark colors without too many prints.
  • If you have an A-line body shape (wide hips, narrow shoulders):choose a midi wrap skirt with few patterns or clear patterns.
  • If you have a V-shaped body type (square shoulders, narrow hips, marked waist):opt for a ruffled wrap skirt with patterns or colorful prints or for a leather skirt.
  • If you have a figure 8 body shape (pulper figure and aligned hips and shoulders):go for a skater or pencil skirt model according to your desires.
