Pedal-pushers reveal, conceal

January 08, 1998|By Elsa Klensch | Elsa Klensch,Los Angeles Times Syndicate

I'm going on a singles cruise, and I want to look sensational. My problem is that while I have great legs, I also have knock-knees. Minis are out, and long skirts hide my best asset. What should I choose as a basic bottom?

One of the new looks in pants for spring is the clam-digger or pedal-pusher. It's slim and cropped just a few inches below the knee. It was designed in the '50s to show off shapely calves.

The proportion is great as it will go with short or long tops. It also can be worn with flat or high heels.

As an alternative, try a new just-below-the-knee skirt in a light fabric.
