Skirts for wedges

"Stand tall and proud because you ladies have those squared off shoulders that command attention," says fashion expert and TV personality Jeannie Mai. "The perfect skirts for you are those that flare, as these will help balance your broad shoulders."

Audrina Patridge, Charlize Theron, Renee Zellweger, Jessica Simpson and Angelina Jolie are just some of the celebrities with wedge body shapes.
