WHICH SKIRT LENGTH DO I CHOOSE?
A MICRO-MINI is a fraction shorter than a MINI skirt. They are a little more forgiving in the body department, but still require some slim curves to wear them. A mini skirt is fine to wear for a day of shopping or lunch with friends. It is wise if you have large thighs to set your hem length to fall across the narrowest part of your thighs.
KNEE LENGTH SKIRT
Knee length skirts are the most versatile length for a hem. It does not matter if the skirt rises a little above the knee or falls a little below, as both levels look good. The length isn’t too long, which would make it seem too formal, and it isn’t too short to make it seem too casual. Knee-length skirts also tend to look good on any body type. The perfect knee length skirt, can work at a formal reception, when you go to the club, at a serious business meeting or attending a casual dinner party.
Mid-calf length skirts work for all occasions, whether formal or casual. The length is a perfect mix of knee length and floor length skirts. The hem is short enough to easily wear in winter conditions, but long enough to help keep you warm. The only drawback to this hem length is that it tends to make big calves look even bigger. I find the most flattering length is to have the hem falling across the slimmest part of the calf.
An ankle or floor length skirt may be a subtle style, but it still has its own attractive appeal. The length works for any body type. Ankle and floor length skirts are fantastic for wearing to work or out socially.
DRESS HEM LENGTHS
To ascertain the correct hem length for you, study your body shape, and make a note of your most outstanding features, which you would like to draw attention too, which will flatter your figure. Learning to know and understand your body shape rather than just blindly following the fashion trend will guarantee that you will always look good and feel confident.
