What are the most popular types of women’s skirts?

Women’s skirts come in several shapes and styles from longline pencil to mini and high-waisted. In this collection, you’ll find all the shapes you require, adapted for the season’s hottest trends and most-distinctive styles. In terms of shape, the following are of the most popular:

Pencil

A pencil skirt has a narrow fit, usually tight around the waist and legs creating a clean, straight-lined aesthetic. Maison Scotch pencil skirts often feature additional detailing such as contrast panels. They can also come in alternative materials like sheep leather and knitted viscose blends.

A-Line

As you can imagine, the term A-line refers to the shape of a skirt. Any ladies skirt that sits relatively tight around the waist and flows outwards as it falls is technically an A-line style. They range from mini-skirt lengths to way beyond the knee. For example, high-waisted long skirts can be A-line, as can knee-length wrap skirts.

Pleated

Again, there are plenty of different styles of pleated skirt. That’s because the pleat refers to a fold made within the garment which gathers the fabric to create fullness or a narrower cut. With Maison-Scotch you’ll find on-trend pleated leather, high-low, and above-the-knee skirts to name a few.

High-Low

Also known as waterfall and asymmetrical skirts, this shape has a full circle hem and a high-waist. Balancing inspiration from Victorian-era fashion with modern trends, a high-low skirt from Maison Scotch provides a classic aesthetic with a fresh twist.

Skater Skirt

A skater skirt usually consists of one piece of material that flows gently outwards. It’s a form of circle skirt and takes its inspiration from figure skaters. For this reason, they’re often made of light materials to provide the flowing skater effect.

Wrap Skirt

This type of skirt has a layered design, and as the name suggests, wraps around your waist and legs. As the term ‘wrap’ only refers to the way the garment is constructed you can find these skirts in a number of materials. They may also feature extra details such as ruffling, side ties and asymmetric designs.

What are the other considerations women’s skirts?

There’s plenty to be considered when it comes to ladies’ skirts. Aside from the overall shape, the way a garment is constructed is also important – whether that’s the way the material is layered, the overall structure of the garment, or what type of waist-line it has.

Layering

Consider whether you want a pleated, ruffle or clean-lined style with your ladies’ skirt. For example, plenty of Scotch & Soda high-low skirts have ruffle-detailing to create a light aesthetic, while straighter styles offer a sleek and elegant cut.

Structure

Structure refers to the specific build and fit of your clothing, and when it comes to skirts, this can often make the difference. Aspects to consider can include asymmetric wraps, centre-zips, button-down closures, or even side-slits and contrast panels.

Waist-line

As with all skirt considerations, there are numerous options when it comes to the waist-line. In this collection, you’ll find waistlines that use stretch materials, draw-strings, fabric belts and side-ties. Your choice will depend on the style you most prefer however it’s worth noting that drawstring and stretch are easy to throw-on, while side-ties and fabric belts can provide an elegant aesthetic.
