Step 1: Dress for your height Make the most of your frame with the right skirt length. A short skirt will add height to a petite frame, while tall and leggy ladies can pull off flowing, layered skirts. Long skirts should be long enough to touch your anklebones. Tip Try on a variety of skirts to see which flatter your body. Always try on a skirt with the shoes you plan to wear with it. Step 2: Accentuate your assets Accentuate your assets. Show off toned legs in shorter skirts or a firm rear end in a knee-length, pencil skirt. Curvy girls will look best with a flared skirt that just covers the knee. Tip Never let a skirt end at the widest parts of your legs -- the calves and upper thighs. Step 3: Make sure it's appropriate Make sure your skirt length is appropriate for your age and the occasion. Even if you look great in a micro mini, it's probably not a good idea to wear one to work or around your grandkids. Step 4: Coordinate with your top Coordinate the skirt length with the style of top you'll be wearing. A fitted, V-neck top won't pair well with a tight, short mini; a longer, flowing skirt creates a better balance. Tunic tops look great with short or narrow skirts. Step 5: Use a safe alternative Wear a skirt that falls right above your knees, if all else fails. It's a length that looks good on all shapes and sizes. Did You Know? In 1966, designer Mary Quant popularized the mini skirt, which hung 6 to 7 inches above the knee.
