‘We are very lucky to work in fashion and not work in a hospital or something where the biggest deal we come across is perhaps the length of a skirt!’

Carrie Roitfeld, Former Vogue Paris Editor & Chief


At the moment in fashion anything goes really. Watching the trends from all the recent fashion weeks around the globe, it feels more like a taste-maker than a dictation as to what you choose as your ‘look’ for the next season.
The conundrum for many women is what length you should go to when shopping for your next dress or skirt? What is age-appropriate, what works on your shape, what will you glow in???

Midi, maxi, mini, mid, modest????


In my opinion the biggest thing to look at is what trend you see working on you. If you’re petite, perhaps a shorter style works best to elongate your frame, and if you have height, midi to maxi has an elegant line to accentuate your physique in a fab way.


Have a play in front of the mirror with some fabric holding it at different lengths on your leg to see which hemline accentuates your specific body shape. Think about what you would wear and accessorise the style with. If you like your legs but like a longer style, go for side splits or a pencil style so people can see your pins!!


What age do you need the skirt hem to start falling? I think personally everyone knows when it’s time to try something else. Fashion now is ageless, but not tasteless. Michael Kors famously said ‘I think a lot of women have too many miniskirts in their closets’. If you’ve stuck to the same style for years, you may be fabulously surprised trying out a new length on you. has plenty of wardrobe worthy skirts and dresses of all styles and sizes on offer, keep scrolling to check out a few favs!


It’s the start of a new season so give something new a try!
