Always opt for pants – Whenever you get an opportunity, wear pants safely. Wear pants that does not taper. Skinny jeans or leggings are no good! The pants should be not too wide or too fitted. It should be kind of straight. Bootcut jeans is the best choice, it will balance out everything.

But if the pants end just below the ankles or at the ankles, you may try those. The hem of the pants or shorts should be ending at the thinnest part of the legs.

Find the slimmest part of your legs – Generally knee is the area which is the slimmest part of one’s legs and that is where the dress or skirt or pants hemline should be. Never go for ruffled or embellished hemlines which would draw the attention downwards. A fitted pencil skirt will accentuate your curves and draw attention upwards and not downwards. But make sure the hemline ends at the slimmest part of your legs.
