How to Shop For Skirts: Rectangle Shaped Body
Avoid: Pencil skirts. While these do well on most body shapes, they will only enhance the allover up and down look of a rectangle shaped body. If a pencil skirt is a must for you, make sure to add something that will add curve. Also keep in mind not to choose a skirt with too much fabric–as it can easily overwhelm your petite frame.
Look for: Choose skirts that help to define your waist. You can easily do this by adding an amazing belt that will give a cinching effect, but be mindful whenever purchasing pieces that are super high in the waist. Look for skirts that hit at your actual natural waist. Lastly, skirts that pillow out after the waist and are more on the fluffy size with added layers will help give the illusion that you are curvier.
Fabrication: Rectangle shaped ladies have a little bit more freedom whenever it comes to fabrication in skirt, as you can choose from many options. Just keep in mind not to choose fabrics that are too thick or add too much volume.
Silhouette: A-line skirts and tulip shaped skirts should be the silhouettes that you turn to the most, as they will accentuate the positive and give the illusion of some additional curves.
