Commit to the most flattering fit for your body type and color that compliments both your skin tone and personality. Dare to step outside of the box and experiment with new hues and stripes.
<strong>SMOOTH LANDING: <a href="http://www.lordandtaylor.com/eng/womensapparel-shorts-Garabaldi_Bermuda_Shorts-lordandtaylor/182928" target="_blank">Lauren Walking Shorts </a>($64.50)</strong> The flat-front, solid-colored Bermuda short is a safe alternative to the usual plaid print that unfortunately gives the illusion of added pounds on the hips, thighs, and rear end. Smooth the tummy and impress your associates by shying away from puckering pleats and lengths that are extremely short or way too long. When in doubt, try the two-finger rule: Place your index and middle finger above your knee as a mark where your hemline should hit.
