Best skirts for Body type C Part 3: What to look for

What to look for:
  • Patterns and prints, medium to large scale. Any geometric pattern should match perfectly at the seams.
B&W: Graphic Checks
Best skirts for Body type C: Pattern and Detailing by Caroline Grant. See how the pattern matches exactly, in perfect symmetry, in this dress? Mismatching stripes, checks, tartan, distract the eye and just plain sloppy tailoring. Say a big NO to any item of clothing and keep your money. The silhouette of the dress is quite simple, although medium sized patterns are best for those who are not petite. The detailing on the hips makes it ideal for Body type Cs. I loved the collaboration between Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama and Louis Vuitton, although I could barely afford a single bracelet of it! [Style: Modern Classic].

  • Horizontal detailing or embellishments (trims, appliqués) at the hem, drawing attention to her shapely legs, or all-over patterns.

Peplum top
Best skirts for Body type C: Pattern and Trim by Caroline Grant. The pattern and trim adorn this pencil skirt and add interest to the outfit, together with the jacket's chartreuse colour. Usually two animal patterns together are an strict NO, but I think in this case it is fine. Tom Ford's Black Orchid lipstick is a classic, and right on trend to those who dare having this chocolatey shade on their lips and nails. [Style: Ladylike with a Twist].

  • Cut on the bias skirts (diagonally cut) in medium and heavy weight materials.
Best trousers for Body type A:
Best skirts for Body type C: Cut on the Bias by Caroline Grant. The interesting architecture of the skirt, plus the cut on the bias, make it perfect to hug any curves that may be lying around. Make sure any cut on the bias item does not make unflattering waves along the seams, that's bad tailoring (it means the material has been overstrechted when sewing or applying a zip). Leave any such items on the racks. [Style: Ladylike with a Twist].

Ann Demeulemeester Blanche Bias Wool-Blend Skirt / Jane Norman Button Bolero Top / Levi's Curve ID Denim Jacket / Radley Christa Handbag / Miz Mooz Emily Slingback Shoes / Versace Printed Silk Scarf / 1928 Bellissima Hidden Treasures Necklace / Nars Semi Matte Lipstick in Heat Wave / Tom Ford Nail Lacquer in Scarlet Chinois.

  • Skirts in thick materials like bouclé or mohair wool, cut on the bias or not, adding a bit of volume at the same time.
Trends 2013: Leather
Best skirts for Body type C: Bouclé and Detailing by Caroline Grant. A nice bouclé in a neutral colour, plus the false pockets on the hips, make it ideal for those who want to balance a broader upper body.  Love the orange accessories, that give some play to otherwise subdued ensemble [Style: Ladylike with a Twist].
It's All About Romance Leather Jacket / American Vintage Tank Top / Burberry Prorsum Bouclé Skirt / Dolce & Gabbana Handbag / Manolo Blahnik Bipunta Pumps / Paul Smith Scarf / Blu Bijoux Coral Necklace / Alexis Bittar Lucite Ring / Yves Saint Laurent Lipstick in Corail Legende / Yves Saint Laurent Nail Lacquer in Corail Divin.
