Skintight pencil skirts are terrific but not always high on the comfort scale. Pleats - whether box, knife, or accordion—will bring an insouciant swing to your step. These breezy bottoms in metallics, tweeds, or bright, cheerful colors have an effortless elegance that’s sure to sway you in their direction.
HOW TO WORK IT
Skirts with a yoke (or pleats that are stitched down at the waistline) visually flatten your tummy. Asymmetrical hemlines edge up this schoolgirl style. These skirts can swallow you if you don’t reveal your waist. Tuck in a silk blouse, or pair with a cropped sweater.
