Prior to starting this blog, I honestly didn't wear anything except for jeans and pants - I hated showing my legs, felt that swishy skirts were too fussy and dressed up, plus I had no idea what flattered me.
It's quite apparent now that I've embraced the skirt and dress - it's girly, easy and really forgiving on the figure. But due to work, modesty and my minimal understanding of what works, I've really stuck to knee-length for my hemlines. I've tried the mini before under more cas circumstances and have recently purchased a maxi length dress that I didn't immediately trip myself all over, so I can say that I am expanding my hemline horizons.
But anything between the knees and ankles? This is about as far down as I've gotten to-date. Except for today - see Lisa in full-blown midi.
Except do you think this length is too midi for mini me? I'm considering chopping it about three inches, which would take it to just below my knees (and above my calves, which I've heard is a flattering length since it does not cut me off at the biggest part of my lower leg) - but I kind of like it as is. Even though I've tried this dress with flats and look frump-tastic.
What's your formula to finding your perfect skirt/dress length? And do you think there's any limit to what length you should wear based on height?
