1. Wear a pair of pants that have a high rise and look nice.
2. In order to cover up your pant lines, wear skirts or dresses with vertical stripes. This is the easiest way to hide the awkward line of your pants since your thighs will be covered by the vertical stripe pattern.
3. If you don’t have any pants with vertical stripes, try wearing vertical striped skirts or dresses.
4. Another good way to cover up your pant lines is by wearing skirts with vertical stripes or even a simple long skirt. Just make sure it doesn’t look too baggy.

Pants can look really good with skirts, but they tend to make it hard for the girls to run around in them without being uncomfortable. There is no one right answer as to how it should work. You will just have to try different things and see what happens. The most common skirts to wear over pants are flared ones. They are cool enough to stay in place and not run up the leg. The two biggest issues that I see people run into is whether or not the pants and skirt should match (colors) and how high should the skirt go on your leg?
When wearing skirts over pants you have to make sure that everything is going to look nice together. This means that the skirt and the pants should be of similar colors, or at least you need to keep the style fresh and trendy. You don’t necessarily have to have identical colors, but you should be able to tell that the skirt and the pants are going to look good together. If you are wearing a long skirt that hits below your knees, then the pants should hit at or below your ankles as well (of course this doesn’t apply if you are wearing boots).
Stick to one type of skirt instead of mixing them up. I wear skirts under jeans because it’s easy and makes for a more streamlined look. Jeans will also help keep the hem on your skirt from getting too baggy. A skirt over jeans works well with a blouse, sweater, jacket, or over a long turtleneck. I personally like to pair my skirts with dresses and cardigans.
I wear skirts over jeans and I am constantly getting asked why I wear them this way. My answer is simple: ‘Why not? When I wear skirts over pants, it looks really nice with heels and peep-toe black sandals in the summer, if you want to dress it up a bit. Most people try to wear skirts over pants because they want to be different. It is the same reason why most people wear jeans and t-shirts. They just want the go with everything look.
