Hemlines, Legs, and Knees~ oh my!


Yesterday I bought a red skirt on sale. Red is one of my favorite colors. It’s a new length for me, however, and I don’t think I can get any shorter than this. Showing my knees has been a definite no-no for so many years. I wonder how I’m going to feel when I actually step out of the house with it on. When I checked it out with my conservative husband, he said, “What’s wrong with it?” The length makes me feel younger, less dowdy, more modern, and when I see women my age here in Belgium wearing this length, I always like it. So, here goes! Opinions, anyone?

  1. You have, and have always had, gorgeous legs! But the at-the-knee length is generally unflattering. It draws attention straight to the hemline, and therefore, the knees. Very few of us have knees that beg to be the center of attention.
    I say, go just below the knees to show off your curvy calves and delicate ankles. OR, if you’re feeling daring, go 4 inches or so above the knees! Let ’em see dem gams!
