Get Flirty! How Long Or Short Should That Hemline Go?

Dara Sayet

Posted on April 28 2017

The sun's shining and it's time stretch out and shed some light on those stems! It’s time to get flirty – put away those tired jeans and pull out your dresses and skirts because the days will be warm and the nights will be even hotter! So now that the weather's turning, you might be asking… what’s in style and what should I be buying? The truth is, it’s totally your call! Hemlines are personal (just like the diary you write in). Personally, I hate my legs so I tend to go for something a bit longer when the opaque tights get tucked away. Fashion is all about self-expression and making yourself feel good. Don’t get caught up in trends but wear what looks best on you! There are some rules to keep in mind and those go hand in hand with your height. While you might be obsessing over that maxi length dress or that micro mini just keep in the back of your head that sometimes there are pieces that are more flattering than others. Follow our simple guide to picking the perfect hemline and we promise that this will be your best season yet!
