Navy Skater Skirt

The Limited - Navy Stripe Skater Skirt

Hi Ladies,
I thought I would try something a little new with this post. Since we all have different body types, I've included some ways to style my outfit if you have a different body type than mine. I'm gonna need your help though...I think I'm pretty good at figuring out what will look good on an hour glass or pear shaped figure. Also, I think I've got a decent idea for apple shapes. However, "inverted triangles" are completely confusing me! It's so different from my figure and I don't think I know anyone personally who has one. So, I'd love some feedback on what works/ doesn't work for them, and also some feedback on my suggestions. (FYI...An "Inverted Triangle" describes a body type that has shoulders wider than their hips, a straight waist and long, thin legs.) Thanks for your help!

if your shoulders are narrower than your hips - OR - your hips and shoulders are equal:
  • Since this is a voluminous skirt, try a blouson top to add volume to your upper half.
if your shoulders are broader than your hips:
  • Try this outfit AS-IS

  5. Hey beautiful lady, this is a fabulous combo! I like how the navy blue works out with golden effects and accessories. Also, the pop of neon yellow are just so refreshing. Awesome look!

  6. I'm having a navy crush at the moment so I love this outfit, plus the fun color accents you chose for your shoes, clutch and nails. Body types though...so confusing! I don't even know what mine is. I just keep trying stuff on until something works, then I buy it in all the colors.

  10. This is really stunning! I love the way skater skirts fit me also - the fit is perfect on you! I'm kind of at a loss for triangle shaped myself! Hmm… Carylee | morepiecesofme.com

  11. Love the gold and coral with the navy. You are so good at pairing colors! I wish I could be helpful about body types but I am just not sure.

  12. I'm a pear shaped too, so I'm pretty much just focusing on my types first to work out the dilemma of small top, big bottom first haha.
    I just ordered a skater dress and waiting for it to arrive, so it's just great timing that I saw this post now:) Love the way you style it!

  15. I love this. I love the navy blue (so much better than black) and I love the way you can see the yellow through it. I like the yellow against the navy and the coral goes with both these colours. I really like the shape of the skater skirt on you too. manic monday
