Ah, yet another installment of my trend series (1st post). This time around I'm talking about longer hems. This trend has evaded my camera for some reason. I've worn long skirts 2 or 3 times recently and never had time for photos. Moral of the story is that long hems really aren't that hard to wear!
You don't have to be a tall lady, like I am, to wear these. Trust me, my legs are relatively short. I will say that some huge wedges or pumps never hurt to extend the legs to look just a bit longer. Try bringing the waist up to the natural position or just below to really make a nice long legline. If the hem hits the floor and you have a high waist then you're looking super leggy anyway.
See, easy peasy. Just give it a try. If it looks awful then oh well, keep a right above the knee hem!
