Styling Tips: Over-the-knee length skirt

Are you ready to go longer? Time for a 180-degree change of your wardrobe, dump all your mini skirts and let's invest in skirts, specifically longer, to-the-knee skirts that are feminine, fitted, and fairly dress up. It almost seems awkward for most of the girls, like there seems to be something a bit off about having a skirt pass the knee showing the calf of their legs, and feeling like a part of the Amish. But when it's done right like Autumn/Winter 2014 collection at 3.1 Phillip Lim, Diane von Furstenberg, Jonathan Saunders, Marni, Victoria Beckham, to name a few, it will create the epitome of ladylike chic.

When you get the right length, the next thing is to re-proportion everything else. First, I paired it with a turtleneck by tucking in. Avoid top goes far below your waist because you don't want your body to look like a 5:5 proportion. On to shoes. You can put on either a pair of stilettos or boots to have a different look. Stilettos (like mine) will define an elegant and classic style, meanwhile boots will create a more sophisticated stylish look.
