Pencil Skirts for Every Shape
If You Have a Tummy
Select a style with a wide waistband to hold in the stomach. Keep the midsection free of eye-catching details, even belt loops
and pockets, says Wolpin-Evans.
To try: The wide waistband of this skirt by Eileen Fisher streamlines the midsection. The stretchy viscose blend provides just enough give through the middle.
Wear it with: A hip-length flowy top. “Just make sure to wear a fitted jacket over it. Otherwise you’ll look bigger than you are,” warns Raes.
