Party Skirts for Every Figure
Look for: Hemlines that hit at or above the knee. Styles with a high waist or vertical details also have an elongating effect, says Simon Kneen, the creative director of Banana Republic.
Avoid: Longer skirts, which can make you look shorter. “Beware of voluminous silhouettes or heavy material, which can weigh down your frame,” says New York City–based costume designer Jenny Gering.
