Skirt Length: Out With The Short, In With The Longer?
After seeing some Fall 2013 runway shows, I noticed that skirts are becoming a little longer – hitting right below the knee (insert “sigh of relief from moms and dads” here). I don’t know how I feel about skirts gaining a few inches. On one hand, I completely understand the longer length – because it’s wise to cover up bare skin during cooler months. On the other hand, I’m the type of person who likes showing off the beauty of the human body, rather than hiding it behind a long, loose-fitted blend of polyester and cotton. But, a Harper’s Bazaar article I recently read, “The New Skirt Length” by Jennifer Alfano, confirmed just what I suspected: knee-length is the new length.
“The sweet spot on every woman is just below the knee, where your leg curves in just before the calf.” ~Jennifer Alfano
You hear that ladies? If said skirt goes longer, a simple hem sesh should do the trick. Now, of course the “sweet spot” rule isn’t for everyone. If you’re Snooki status, and can barely see over your steering wheel, then I would suggest wearing a shorter skirt so you aren’t engulfed in fabric. The truth is, it’s really all about how YOU rock it.
As far as this new longer skirt trend goes…Maybe it will evolve into even longer skirts with more volume. That said, I immediately imagine high school in the 50’s – when girls flaunted flirty poodle-skirts. Okay…Now I’m having a nostalgic moment…
I’m somehow taken back to a time when I want to get a McFlurry, throw on some sweats, and watch my all time favorite childhood movie: Grease!
Be sure to check in with HSK next weekend, when I’ll face-off with another passion of current fashion…
