At Fella Hamilton, gored skirts have been a long-time favourite, gracing many of our cherished designs. Loved for its femininity and ease of movement, here we explore three gored skirt styles - a straightforward, elegant classic option (in black and navy) and two monochrome patterned skirts.

A gored skirt is made with triangular panels of fabric, creating a snug fit at the top and a graceful flare at the bottom, resulting in a beautiful drape. With a gentle taper at the waist and an outward flow at the hem, gored skirts embrace the charm of an A-line silhouette.

Gored skirts Bowen Lane skirt and Inverness SkirtBowen Lane Skirt & Inverness Gored Skirt

When it comes to patterns, we explore the charming Bowen Lane Basque Gored Skirt from our spring-summer collection and the more subtle printed skirt of the cosy Inverness Gored Skirt from our autumn-winter range.

These flared designs are adored by individuals with an hourglass or pear-shaped figure, as they artfully balance the curves of the hips with a graceful sweep at the base of the skirt. Conversely, those with a narrower body frame can benefit from the A-line shape, as cinching it at the waist creates the illusion of curves and hips. In such instances, opting for a tucked-in top at the waist enhances the waist and hip line for an optimal look.
