Skirts for hourglasses

"You quite possibly have the bestest bod with your kick butt curves," raves fashion expert and TV personality Jeannie Mai. "Pencil skirts are the ones to go for; they will cling to your figure coming right in at your waist to show off your sexy curves. If you feel you're a little on the shorter side, then wear 3/4-length or skirts just below the knee with a slit to make you look taller."

Avoid skirts that are too flared because they'll camouflage your curves. ,for work, don't wear a skirt that is too tight either -- it might come off as too sexy.
