Wednesday, April 15th, 2009

Wear skirts that show some leg. If you have an hourglass figure wear full skirts with an A-line cut. Balance it out with a slim fitting tank or top and heels. If you have a straight boy shaped figure wear mini-skirts with pleats or ruffles giving your lower body a boost. Pair it with flats for an easy chic look. If you have a curvy figure wear body hugging pencil skirts that hit at the knee. Keep it sexy with a thin cardigan and heels.
