Party Skirts for Every Figure
How about giving your LBD some time off? These fancy, flattering party skirts are perfect for holiday-season celebrations.

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.
To buy: Anthropologie beaded wool skirt, $298, anthropologie.com. Chaus top. Colour Me earrings. Rosena Sammi bangles.
