Style Watch: Skirts Getting Longer!

10 10 2009

Ladies, if you haven’t noticed, the hemline is lengthening!

Just below the knee and mid-calf are the hot styles for fall and winter (which helps keep warmer legs!)  But remember, no matter what’s “a la mode” you need to wear a length that is flattering to your figure.

If you have chicken legs like me, skirts cut directly at or slightly above the knee are great, as well as mid-calf which creates the illusion of a fuller muscle.  Angle length is also excellent for slender limbs.

Thick calves? You’ll look great in skirts cut right above or at the knee or go for tea or ankle length.  Careful not to accentuate those lovely built calves by cutting them at their fullest, creating the illusion of an even fuller calf.

Thick ankles, but love skirts? Try wearing boots this season!

You deserve to feel beautiful and have a perfect way to work with your body shape and build, learn how to dress it!

This skirt reminds me of  Rosemary Clooney in “White Christmas.”  You know, the scene where she has a tiff with Bing Crosby while ‘rehearsing the Blessings number.’   I LOVE that movie, don’t you?

Gorgeous on a fuller figure or if you have lovely curves!

My Classic Black Skirt. A pencil skirt with personality.  Perfect for skinny or proportionate legs.

BootsBOOTS – & MORE Boots! These pairings of boots and skirts are excellent examples of ways to combine two loves -dresses & leather- for stunning and economical looks!
