Women’s skirt with a yoke - how to choose the perfect model?
Women’s skirts are available on the fashion market in various styles and lengths, so you will surely find something for yourself among wide range. When creating the desired look, the skirt must be combined with another element of clothing, but it’s extremely pleasant and creative fun, because you can achieve a different end result each time. However, you need to remember a few rules, the most important of which is choosing a skirt that is right for your figure and style.
Women’s skirts with a yoke have been extremely popular for decades, which celebrated their greatest triumphs in the 1980s, by many of us remembered with considerable fondness. This style, In a modernized form, is also available today and is very eagerly chosen by us, because it’s associated with comfort, freedom of movement and girlishness. The most common are midi skirts with a yoke, but you can also find short and maxi models of these skirts.
The undoubted advantage of a skirt with a yoke is how well this cut does the silhouette - it optically lengthens and slims it. However, it must be remembered that it’s also quite demanding on the fabric. The fabric of the yoke skirt should be neither too thick, too thin, nor too heavy. The heavy fabric will cause the skirt, which is usually plentiful below the yoke, with ruffles and multiple pleats, to slide off. On the other hand, too thin and tight material will emphasize the folds and the belly unnecessarily. On the other hand, too thick and stiff fabric, such as corduroy or jeans, will not fit well, the pleats or ruffles will stick out stiffly, thickening the silhouette.

Following the spirit of fashion, the O!Glamour brand has also created its model of a flared skirt with yoke - the CHARLOTTE midi skirt. The fabric from which the skirt is made is 100% viscose, is very good quality, optimally soft and well fitting. The yoke of the CHARLOTTE skirt is smooth, the skirt is fastened at the back with a covered zipper. On the sides, on both sides separately, a triple elastic is sewn in, which will allow some freedom in adjusting the waist width. The bottom of the skirt is wrinkled around the entire width. There are practical and comfortable pockets hidden in the side seams. The lower finish of the CHARLOTTE flared skirt is simple, decorated with only a wide overlap.
What to wear a CHARLOTTE flared midi skirt with?
Women’s skirts are a very universal item of clothing, suitable for many occasions and as a popular as women’s pants or dresses. The yoke skirt in the pantheon of women’s skirts take a special palce due to its very comfortable cut and slimming properties. It’s also quite a spectacular cut. Therefore, it’s worth carefully choosing the top for it. If you choose a large sweater, a large t-shirt or a loose tunic, it’s no use trying to slim the figure with a skirt with a yoke. Not only will you not show the full beauty of the skirt, but also oversize clothes will add centimeters around the waist and hips. And if, in addition, such a skirt has a midi length, combined with a voluminous top, it will make the silhouette overwhelmed, and all its advantages are deeply hidden in the folds of unnecessary fabric.
For flared skirts of all lengths, we recommend choosing a lighter, more fitted top. On slim ladies who aren’t afraid that extra kilos will be revealed to the world here or there, a wide skirt with a yoke will look great combined with a matching top, t-shirt or sweater. A shirt blouse tucked into a skirt is also a great solution. If you have any objections to your figure, we recommend choosing wider but shorter blouse with a yoke skirt - you will emphasize the beauty of the skirt.
Footwear is an important element of any look. When you decide on a flared midi skirt with a yoke, choose higher-heeled or wedge-heeled shoes. Avoid shoes with completely flat soles - ballerinas, sandals or sneakers, as well as tied ankle boots or short ankle boots - they will shorten the legs and take away lightness of the figure.
