Usually, it's curvy or shy women who opt for suits with skirted bottoms. But these can also say "you're a retro girl," says Nancy LeWinter, editorial director of OneStopPlus.com, an online fashion retailer. "You're feminine in a 'from here to eternity' kind of way, just waiting to flirt into the next swept away scene."

Tip: A dark bottom and lighter top will draw the eyes upward to show off your up-top assets, says Lisa K. Ford, an image, color and style consultant based in Tampa, Florida.
