Top Tips for Skirts

Pick the best length for you. If you're petite, a high-waisted style that hits above the knee works best. If you're taller, pick a skirt that hits at or right below the knee.

Pair a full skirt with a slim-fitting top. For a more polished look, tuck it in.

Heels always look better with skirts, but if you're wearing casually, a smoking shoe will work too.

If you want to look smaller, keep the skirt in a darker colour or print to make the area visually recede. Brighter or lighter shades make the area "pop" and adds shape.
