There is nothing better than a piece that combines style, fit and comfort.
Let’s face it, our bodies aren’t all created equal and we certainly don’t all have curves in the same places which is why shopping off the rack, without any alterations, can be difficult for many of us.
Some are bigger in the hips while others might have a bit of a tummy or broad shoulders or a large chest, so getting the perfect fit universally out of standard sizing can be challenging.
One of my long time fashion loves that solves so many fashion problems with it’s wonderful figure flattering powers is knit skirts and dresses.
They are the perfect balance between style, fit and comfort.
I’m not talking about chunky sweater knits, I mean beautifully luxe lightweight fitted knit skirts and dresses in form-fitting and A-line cuts.
Not only do they emphasize your figure they also make you feel feminine and are super comfortable.
The knit fabric stretches and adjusts perfectly to all your curves making a knit skirt or dress the most ultra flattering piece for any type of figure.
Knits pair with just about anything AND are wearable in all seasons- you can find slightly heavier weights with tighter weaves for winter like the skirt I am wearing here or feather-light breathable ones for summer like the M Missoni one I wore in my “Cactus Print Trend” post last summer.
Every gal needs at least one knit skirt/dress in their fashion arsenal (aka closet), trust me it will be your go-to “I always look good and feel good in it” piece.

I love this outfit on you! The jean jacket with the skirt is just perfect!
Yes! Knits are my best friend. I’m short (5’3″), with hips and a bust but a small waist. If a dress isn’t knit I don’t even try them on anymore since I know they’re not going to work.
Seriously knits are such a lifesaver!
I’m never using the term closet again…it’s fashion Arsenal!
I love the pop of pink with the purse! Very cute.
I never thought I could wear knit skirts for my body type. I’m loving it on you. ????
You totally can! They are so flattering!
Ah I love your bag and skirt! I need to get my wardrobe updated stat!
You look great in skirts! A Knit dress would look FANTASTIC on you!
I live in knits too… especially at work – and I love the pop of pink in your handbag
Thanks you so much! They are the comfiest!
Everybody’s crazy about a well-dressed woman. I love the look, and how you are working it. Looking good, lol.
Awe thank you!
Love how simple and edgy this look is.
The denim jackets add so much ‘umph’ and you rocked that knit skirt.
P.S. everyone needs “I always look good and feel good in it” piece.
Thank you so much!
I love your outfit, Christie! 🙂 I especially love the jean jacket you are wearing over your blouse. I wish I could wear that more often (if only we didn’t have a dress code at work..lol!)
LOL Dress codes ar the killer of fashion personality.. but there are always days off!
They really look great on you.. Simply gorgeous and beautiful.
I totally agree with you on this. Being curvy myself, knits are always what I zone into when I go shopping. I’m always commenting to my daughter whenever we see something that’s cute but so not fitting us, that I wish I could afford my own personal dress maker lol. Until then, stretchy, comfy dresses are what I’m all about! And, you look too cute in that denim jacket!! 🙂
Awe thanks Cori!
This is such a great idea for great bodies. Unfortunately it may not suit me.

I totally agree. Specially with the idea of being comfortable while still looking stylish-its so important and definitely go hand in hand
I agree, Comfort is really important. I hate when people try to downplay that!
Too cold here in New York for skirts right now. However, I am all about the jean jacket and pink pop of color in a clutch!!
