Five readers on the hunt for a flattering and feminine style found their perfect match.
Challenge: Long and Lean
"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."
