If you are petite
What to look for: A fitted style that won’t overwhelm your small frame. Pick skirts that fall above the knee — a pleated skirt worn with platforms will “give you height and elongate your frame,” Polk says.
What to avoid: Long skirts that fall below the knee, which make you look like a teapot … short and stout.
