What are the different types of skirts: mini, midi, maxi, pencil skirts, etc? Which skirt fits which body type? This video shows the 3 parameters when choosing a skirt: waist, hemline and fullness. I refer to the main body types: pear, apple, inverted triangle, rectangle & hourglass. Petite and tall women are also mentioned, but if you are petite or tall, you are still (also) a body type. Thumbs up if you liked this video! Any question or tip? Comment below. New videos: Wednesday 5pm & Sunday 12pm (Paris/Berlin time). Take care!

Hi Justine! What if you made a video on ways to style a midi skirt? I love them! :D

I like the A-line skirts most. In a length halfway the legs = midi. But sometimes also maxi style. My favourite now is a black jeans-skirt in midi. I wear skirts in public since 14 years. In all four seasons. It is so comfortable and elegance. I like it more, than trousers / pants. Very helpful in summer, if the weather is hot. Skirts are the most comfortable fashion for men. So also for me. No problems in germany, france, switzerland in public. In a french supermarket I wear a blue jeans-maxi-skirt. A little girl noticed me, and told it to her parents. Her parents saw it, and told her, it is ok. No matter at all. So it is ok for the girl too.
Daisyy Slay I'm thick and wear mini skirts just not super mini, just like a couple inches above the knee.

What would be my ideal skirt if I have a short torso, I'm short, curvy, hourglass?
In Russia the part of the skirt that you call yoke is called a french word "kokette" :)
Ohhh I didn't know, fun fact 😅
The Lottie Effect (8 days ago)
I really struggle with having a small waist and large hips and love handkes which makes high waisted aline skirts 'bulge' at just under the waistband where the fabric has to extend out onto my hips. I'm petite and pair shaped so realllllllly struggle with this 😔 what would you recommend?

Super annoying cause i'm Jewish (orthodox) and I have to wear skirts below the knee or longer and it drives me CRAZY cause unless i'm wearing a maxi dress or skirt i look SO short like the best length is just above my knee but I can't wear that and I just don't feel pretty

Rakealia (21 days ago)
Good video. With my pear shape and height, I tend to go for knee length or just under, with A line to semi circle and it looks good, glad to know I'm on the right track with that. :3
Alona Iliashchuk (22 days ago)
Thank you!!!!!
Katie Dotson (22 days ago)
For comfort and style, bring back the cullottes. More than just wide leg pants (IMO) made correctly, they give the appearance of a skirt while maintaining the comfort of trousers. They may herald back to when women first began to ride horses astride as opposed to using a side saddle. Anything resembling men's breeches at that time would never have been worn by women. Most today are below the knee length but can be of any length.

OMG! too many rules! If I see a skirt that I like I buy it! I hate measuring to conform to a standard look.
Carole Smith (24 days ago)
I'm 5'7", pear-shaped with slender features.  I find I tend to wear a lot of flowy, ankle length skirts.  Knee length or just below the knee would probably look good on me, except I find that they are just that tiny bit too short on me once I sit down and I like to move around a lot when sitting.  Also I live in a pretty hot area, so I don't want to add a layer of leggings just to make an outfit more modest.

irma adyatni mawardi (30 days ago)
I'm binge watching your videos :D I'm petite and pear shaped (Beyonce shaped more like) I like full circle skirt that come kissing my ankle though (or slightly higher) due to cultural reasons (can't waltz around in public with shorter/tighter skirt without getting publicly lynched sadly). But love your video on this topic :)

I've heard of a "french length" and it's a skirt that ends around mid-calf. There is this local brand in Russia called po pogode who sell some clothing... the dresses are okay, but the skirt i purchased last time was flat. Like on the sides, where the seems are it kind of doesn't lay flat close to the body. The sides stick out. So from the side you look normal, but from the front the skirt is sticking out. Is there anything i could do myself at home to fix this? Maybe ironing it on the seems or something?

Ashleah (2 months ago)
Hi Justine! I have a large bust, small waist, and large hips with toned legs. I've never liked skirts because they always tend to make me look boxy and I can never pair the right shirt with it, is there any advice you can give me? I've always envied ladies who look attractive in skirts! Thank you! Love your vidoes!

Skirts and I are never friends since I have a very small waist compared to a huge butt so tight skirts always ride up. Since I'm 5'4" I can't wear any long skirts since I'm already the size of a child and look like a child.

Aphro (5 months ago)
There are long skirts that are straight (and more stretchy) so they hug your hips and curves and you can walk just fine in it because it’s not super tight around the calves/ankle

Hi Justine! Can you please make a video about winter clothes because I love sweaters but I want to learn how to choose esp when you're skinny. I would also love to learn about overalls as I want to try it out. I always wear jeans and jackets because I am super thin and I am afraid to try different styles. Sincerely, Filipino Subscriber :)

Linda Ursin (7 months ago)
I need a high rise (wide, inverted triangle). I am short but I don't feel comfortable in short skirts so I go for long ones, preferably hugging with a flare at the bottom (for example mermaid). I do have a long torso so it feels like my legs look longer that way and I feel good in them. Plus I can move, even run to the bus which I never do :D

I like this so much! As a Dutch reformed Christian girl, I only wear skirts and dresses. Have you done one on dresses as well? (I couldn't find it on your channel) As I can't wear jeans and any sort of trousers (which I feel like are the norm in Holland) I really like your elegant French side on fashion!
