Midi is always a challenging length for a shortie like me, though I can't help but to keep trying since I like the lady-like silhouette.
I think midis are supposed to hit a normal-height person at mid-shin, where the legs begin to thin out (so says LC - though I've always been Team Kristin), but a shorter-than-normal person is supposed to stick to lengths no longer than ones that hit right below the knee because anything anything longer could get "overwhelming" for a short frame.
The MTV queen-turned-style guru probably has a point but I wanted to take this skirt out for a spin as-is before I head it off to the tailor. I loved this skirt from a distance for a long while but never considered it because of its length. But then I found one from Ebay recently for cheap and couldn't resist.
My only other midi-length piece I ended up shortening. But what do you think about this skirt? Should I shorten it or keep it as-is?
