A voluminous skirt hides larger thighs and makes your waist look "tiny by default," says Adam.
How to Wear It: A fitted top always works, though a chunky sweater is a fun alternative. Full skirts look especially pretty with pointy flats and kitten heels.
If You're Short: Match the color of your tights to your heels.
If You're Tall: Anything shorter than knee length looks juvenile.
What to Avoid: Boxy tops and full coats and jackets.
