SILVER SPRING FASHION DESIGNER Betsy Garcete, above, thinks
all women can look great in a skirt, regardless of their shape, age or size.
That’s why she created Zophia, a line of custom pencil skirts, in 2010.
The high-end, curve-hugging beauties ($499 each) come in fabrics such
as luxe tweed and champagne-hued faux leather. Each one is hand fitted
and sharply tailored using eight separate measurements. We asked
Garcete how to style skirts for spring and summer.
