New Lengths

October 22, 2010

So refreshing to see skirts at the just-below-the-knee length. It seems like the past few years, the spotlight has always been on either maxis or minis, shining alternatively on one or the other. Definitely time for something new and different.

I think a lot of people are thrown off of wearing these skirts because they don’t want to look matronly, but as evidenced in the above picture, there’s nothing dowdy about this lower hemline when it’s done right! Like anything else, it’s all about proportions and accessorizing.

The pic’s from Hanneli by the way, which shouldn’t come as any surprise…I’ve recently noticed that I tend to get all of my major inspirations from really only one of four places: Hanneli, Vanessa Jackman, Garance, or The Sartorialist. Aaaand sometimes Fashion Gone Rogue. Um….I should really try to expand my horizons a bit…
