1) Embrace your curves:
First of all straight pencil skirts are your friend, they create a lean line while hugging your hips in all the right places. Look for Pencils that hit just above the knee and are straight from the widest part of your hips to the knee.

You should also embrace straight leg jeans they give the skinny jean look and provide a slimming leg line.
