Best Skirts for Body type C Part 1

Let´s remember first the ideal for Body type Cs:
To soften the shoulder line, balancing it with their lower body.
Also, to create definition at the waist, elongating their torso.
Skirts can help to achieve the ideal by...
  1. Choosing cuts and patterns that create the illusion of curviness.
  2. Choosing styles that can be worn at low waist (the narrowest point on the torso for Body Type Cs is straight under the bust or some inches below).
With that in mind... What are Body type C's best skirts?
Her best choices are styles that have a flat piece around the hips, elongating the line of her torso (and therefore, slimming it), like torso and broomstick skirts do, but other options are good too.

Torso. A smooth yoke to which soft pleats or gathers are attached, but also tiers (your classic peasant skirt, that is).

It was designed in the 1960s by Norwegian jeweller David Andersen, is silver guilloche (an intricate pattern engraved by machine on the metal) enamel. The skirt is last season's Hobbs, my sister bought in on sale, and it's lovely. The colours are amazing and the materials in an amazing silk twill. [Style: Urban Tweed].

Broomstick. Stitch-down pleats in light-weight materials like silk, wool or cotton also contribute to create a flat surface around the high hip.

There are other colours even prettier than this one, you can see another in the wrap skirt set below. In any case, it can be a great inspiration for a DIY project. [Style: Ladylike with a Twist].

Circle, semicircle, or flare. Skimming over the hips and gradually widening to a full hem. This effect can be achieved also by adding godets (triangular pieces of fabric that add length to the hem).

I have featured Rosanna Fani Isabella necklaces in many of my sets because I simply love the modern take on the traditional pearl necklace she does. I think it would be quite easy to replicate something very similar with your own beads. [Style: Urban Tweed].
