The long Full Skirt – This type of skirt will suit a medium to tall height women. The fullness of this skirt can overwhelm a shorter or petite person.

The Ruffled Skirt – This type of skirt will suit you if you have a slim figure. If you are a bit on the large side, then avoid this style of skirt as it will only make you look larger. To wear this skirt successfully the key is to keep the rest of the outfit very simple, especially if it also has a print on it. Add some simple mules to finish this feminine look off.
