HOW TO WORK ITSlide into a sweater that lands just below the stomach, or tuck a long, skinny one into a skirt and toss on a belt. If drawing attention to your tummy makes you squirm, wear a curve-hugging fisherman's sweater over a dark skirt. Chunky knits are an ideal counter point to floaty fabrics like silk or feminine textures like ruffles or fringe. Don't shy away from matching sweaters and skirts: Monochromatic looks are chic and flattering. Skirt lengths range from just above the knee to floor-dusting. Those with muscular calves should skip skirts that hit below the knee, which highlight the widest part of the lower leg.
