Skirts for Wide Hips

DO buy A-line and flared styles that sit low on your waist. Dark colors and details are slimming.

DON'T go too short -- or too long. Knee-length options give your lower body a leaner look.

Skirts for a Big Tummy

DO choose skirts with draping or flounces down the front to hide a belly bulge.

DON'T fall for loose, flowing styles; they only add bulk. Instead, seek out straight silhouettes that are fitted at the hips.

Skirts for Boy Shapes

DO opt for picks with a thick waistband to define your middle and create the illusion of curves.

DON'T pair a tight top with a slim skirt. A fuller, swingy style will add volume and help fill out your figure.

Skirts for Short Legs

DO look taller in a hemline that's above the knee. It will lengthen your legs.

DON'T wear styles that hit at mid-calf or lower. They'll overwhelm your petite frame and make you seem shorter.
