The Black Skirt: Work
Pick a realistic style for your body with ease where you need it.
Flaring pleats near the hem give this skirt (Worthington by JCPenney, $36) a graceful shape that balances hips. "For me, black trumps other neutrals," says Organizing for America volunteer Weez Tomlinson, 50. "I love its allure." Not to mention how good it looks with elements as soft and colorful as a velvet blazer (Anne Klein New York, $395) and ruffled shirt (Ellavie, $69).
