  1. "At my age, I want to cover my knees and add some curves, too." - Tosca LaBoy, 59   Solution: Flared skirts with a long hemline disguise aging legs and fill out a thin frame. A sheer fabric and ethereal paisley print lend movement to a skirt that might otherwise seem bulky.   Tosca says: "You could wear this with heels, flats or boots—it's fun, but it's polished and professional, too."   
  2. A bold black-and-white pattern and ruffled edge ensure this maxi style is far from dowdy.   $60, sizes 12-28, and $65, sizes 26-28; jessicalondon.com
  3. A drawstring on this vivid, floor-grazing style makes for a good fit. Adjust it so it sits at your slimmest point.   $78, sizes 0-16; garnethill.com
  4. "I rarely wear skirts—they can look too boxy on me." ‐ Elizabeth Zuhl, 28   Solution: A wide or adjustable waistband helps fake a few curves. A high hemline puts the focus on legs. A blouse in a contrasting hue breaks up a square torso. Inverted pleats at the hem draw the eye downward toward slender calves.   Elizabeth says: "Long skirts tend to shorten my legs—my best asset. This one hits at just the right spot."   
  5. Volume at the bottom of this drapey, pastel-hued skirt helps to balance out a thicker middle.   $78, sizes 0-16; garnethill.com

  8. "I played sports all my life, and my legs show it." – Kaitlyn Prol, 27   Solution: Medium-scale patterns—neither too tiny nor too large—have a minimizing effect. Avoid a baggy look with a trim black top and a skinny belt.   Kaitlyn says: "I'm more comfortable covered up. But I want a skirt that's loose, not structured. This one is perfect."   
  9. The chevron pattern on this bold maxiskirt has a slimming, lengthening effect.   Faded Glory, $15, sizes 1X-4X; walmart.com

  11. "I'd like to flaunt my shape, not try to hide it." – Mya Neblett, 31   Solution: Pencil skirts like these hug in all the right places and are flattering in a variety of lengths. Mixing florals and other patterns works when it's all in the same color family. A small, allover pattern is pretty and feminine, and it accentuates long thighs.   Mya says: "I feel like my body can get lost in a full skirt. A slim one makes me feel pretty and womanly."
