Trendy Plus-Size Skirt Report
(Shopping Resources Below)

Skirts aren't quite as popular as dresses, but many trendy plus-size women do prefer wearing them instead of shorts in warmer climates and seasons. Cooler seasons and climates see skirts layered with tights, leggings, or boots.  Styles often mirror dresses with the added advantage of being able to change up looks more easily with different tops.

 


Sizing can be either junior or women's plus, so be sure to check size charts.  Not only do junior plus sizes run smaller than women's, these tend to be straighter cut with less difference between waist and hips.  This last distinction is particularly important for close cut pencil skirt style for women with pear body types.  The style can work beautifully on the pear figure type, but only if the fit is right.  Pears (and hour glasses) will do better with women's plus sizes in close fitting skirt style, especially if there is no or very little stretch to the material.
 

Shopping Resources for Trendy Plus-Size Skirts

Some of the trendiest style skirts drawing inspiration from high end runways come from Fast Fashion retailers that offer up-to-the-minute style at low prices.  Inventory tends to rotate quickly and sizes sell out at these shopping hot spots, so be sure to grab looks that you like right away!   One of the best for curvy fashionistas is Asos, offering stylish British looks for size 0 to 24W.

Torrid offers the latest trends especially designed for curvy figures and carries a variety of styles ranging from maxi skirts to flippy mini skirts.  Those looking for items with a goth edge can often do well here, although styles have become more mainstream trendy in recent years. Sizing is especially good from L to 6X.

Meanwhile, trendy teen retailer Rue 21 has also expanded their size ranges with good inventories available on-line in size 1X to 3X at low to moderate prices.  Body conscious in their look, urban fast fashion retailer Ashley Stewart extends sizes further with options available from 12 to 32W.

Women who like maxi skirt styles in easy-care jersey knits will often find a selection in both solids and prints at SWAK which offers their complete collection in size 1X to 6X.  A few shorter and more body conscious styles can also turn up here from time to time.  A boho flavor infuses the styles at Pyramid Collection which can have some fun and unusual skirt options for size 2 to 28W.

Vintage inspired on-line retailer ModCloth has a growing collection of indie designer fashion in stylish, contemporary styles.  Runs are limited here, but sizing is increasingly available as large as 5X.   eShakti, while mainly specializing in dresses, has a similar vintage and retro feel to their designs and usually carries a unique inventory of skirts that can be adjusted for a small fee to accommodate different needs from petite to tall.

Newcomer Eloquii is pricier and often appeals to younger working women who are looking for an edgier and more unique style for the office. Skirt silhouettes vary here from body conscious pencil skirts to fuller, midi length options in size 14 to 28W.

Of the department stores Nordstrom has one of the largest selections of plus-size trendy skirt styles, regularly carrying the fashion from Australian plus specialty designer City Chic, in addition to other labels in size 14 to 24W.  Macy's will also carry options from both their in house brands, and junior labels such as American Rag, Lucky, and Jessica Simpson in size 1X to 3X.  Meanwhile, Lord & Taylor is beefing up its trendier offerings including labels such as Modamix, Melissa McCarthy, Junarose, and Additionelle for sizes up to 3X.
