Q. I love wearing denim skirts but hate how the front zipper has a tendency to add bulk and stick out in exactly the area I don't want any extra fullness. Do you have any suggestions for a short denim skirt with a flat front or another trick to keep my tummy from looking larger in my beloved denim mini looks?
A. I know exactly what you mean, and it can be very frustrating. Your best bet is to seek out a style that does not have a traditional zip-front fly, perhaps one with buttons down the front or an asymmetrical seam, or even a stretch pull-on style. Below are a few atypical options that should solve the issue for you while still giving you the casual cool look of a denim skirt.
