Choosing a long skirt according to body type
It is true that long skirts suit tall women but women with different body types can take advantage of long skirts as long as they make wise fashion decisions. We should remember that long skirts should be according to our height. When choosing the right long skirt, we may need some hemming or just experiment with the lengths.
If you are tall, you can use the long skirt to disguise your feet and make yourself visually shorter. If you are short, choose your long skirt to be just a few inches above the ankle or below the ankle in order to get the illusion of a taller body. High heels can be helpful here.
Tall women can choose long skirts with a variety of patterns and prints. They can choose long skirts in bold and neutral tones, printed skirt designs, slim-cut skirt s. For women with short or petit figures, best choice are lightweight long skirts paired with tight-fitting tops of the same shade. They should avoid large prints or heavy full skirted designs.
