Skirts have been in fashion singe centuries, though their styles and patterns have got evolved with the time. And the best part about skirts is you can wear them at any occasion, whether you have to dress formally or simply chill out in casuals. While straight and pleated skirts impart a sophisticated look to the women, you can give the impression of being the replica of 1950’s actress by wearing full or ballerina skirts. Floral designs in skirts are liked by most of the girls in casual wear which also provides them a delicate look. In India, skirts have been in trend since times immemorial, and the cotton handloom skirts manufactured here, are loved by every Indian woman. Besides these cotton handloom skirts, there are many other types of skirts available across the world.

A-line skirts
A-line skirts, also called princess skirts, can be especially flattering to plus-size figures, but can be worn well by all figure shapes. An A-line skirt is shaped like a capital letter "A", with a snug waist spreading out into a triangular shape. A-line/princess skirts are considered a wardrobe staple, especially in a neutral color and a season-spanning fabric such as lightweight wool.
This is the basic skirt that has been customized to a great extent. With slight flare having rough shape of capital letter ‘A’, it fits at the waist while slightly touching hips and thighs; it is broader at the hem.

Flared Skirts
Actually Flared skirts are A-line skirts, but they have extra flare which beautifully covers the fat over hips and thighs. Women who are thin can also try this out in large prints as it will give a voluptuous appearance.

Fit and Flare Skirts
It is just about a variation in flared skirt and in this, flare starts from the hip, not from the waist. Girls having smaller derriere would love such skirts as it will accentuate the hip curve and cover up the lack of thigh curve.



Straight Skirts
Just true to its name, straight skirt falls rightly from the hip. These skirts suit almost everyone, though depending upon the body shape, length and waistline, results may vary.

Pencil Skirts
Hugged to the body from the waist to just above the knee, these skirts come in stretch material and with a back slit at times. Such skirts go only with slim and skinny figures as they emphasize the hips and the derriere.

Tube Skirts
Simply the longer versions of the pencil skirts, Tube skirts fit at the hip and taper at the hem. The visible difference is that they go down below the knee. It suits slim figures.

Mini Skirts
These casual and sexy skirts are loved more by men than women. Mini skirts can be very short and just right to reveal a beautiful pair of legs. Short women can always rely on this because mini skirts elongate the legs.

Pleated Skirts
Plated skirts appear best in short length, just above the knees. The flare of this skirt is reduced by plates and it fits the waist. It looks nice on both, slim and a little plump figures.

Asymmetric Hem Skirts
Asymmetric Hem Skirts come in a variety of shapes and suit a variety of figures. In this, the hem moves and curls in a pattern at different levels. It usually conceals various flaws at the hip, thigh or leg.

Bias Cut Skirts
Bias cut skirts are cut across the fabric's grain on the diagonal. Cutting on the bias creates a flowing hemline that can seem ultra-feminine and romantic. Bias cut skirts can be long or short and have panels or multi-layers.

Tulip Skirts
Tulip skirts have more fabric around the hips than pencil skirts, giving them the shape of an inverted tulip. Tulip skirts look good on most figure types, especially slender figures as tulip skirt fabric tends to add a little extra bulk around the hips.

Fishtail Skirts
A traditional fishtail skirt is a long, ankle-length skirt that is tightly fitted from the waist to the knee and then flares out to create a fishtail look. Some new designs of the fishtail skirt have a pleated area between the legs and crotch that allows the wearer more leg room to walk. Fishtail skirts are often worn for nicer occasions like weddings or proms.
