  • Mid Calf Skirts

    i don't know the right term for such skirts.

    They do come in flare, multi-tier, dyed, wrinkled varieties. What is the best way t o wear them without looking old-soil?

    Besides Indian, resort, vintage, gypsy, any other theme/options? wearing heels with these are ok??

    I like them! I'm short and bottom heavy, so, as I said on the "Fashion advice for short gals" thread, I like those that are in heavier fabrics, so that they fall nicely. Nothing poofy or flouncy or frilly or tiered or with too many pleats - they make my arse look huge. I bought several last season at Zara, the tweedy types.

    I think if you're short, then heels is a must. Either sandals or knee-high boots.

      with boots!! brilliant, very like mag-spread but my boots are mouldy now.

      yes, my bottoms got manified with most of these skirts. i have been trying to match with top with ideal length to hide it, not too long nor short. oooh... life is so stressed (by these bum-blooming skirts!!)

        "Bum-blooming"? You have the most bingo words! Hit right on the nail's head!

        Mid-calf length can really shorten us further, no? I just attended a course and we touched on how to dress right. It's mostly about proportions, like, a jacket should take up 2/3 and the skirt 1/3 of the whole suit. Colours in contrast play a big part too. I'm rambling.

          Oh yah, the top mustn't be too short, IMO, unless you've got a beautifully flat tummy. I find that these skirts go best with more feminine fitted tops, to give you a waistline.

          I avoid shorter skirts because I really hate my fat thighs and calves. So far I've got from friends. Some actually say I look better in them than in my usual faves (boot-cut trousers).

              i love whimscal ones too!! Woooo.....

              handy when rushing for crazy-sales (like Mango), just slip up the desired bottom, pull down the skirt, voila!! one of my favourite public stunts

                my torso is long so for past decade, my proportion is 50/50

                thanks alot for your highlight, i should pay more attention to such vital details.

                the sticky part is the elastic waistband, sometimes too much gathers at the back thus emphasis is placed on wearer's bums. i am one such case.

                      Gwen you want to fake demure? Remember what I told you when we walk back to MRT from Jemay's place? You look demure! So don't need to act.

                          Gwen, just don't get a cottage'gy skirt

                          i think the most foolproof way is spag/tube/simple cut tee with your new skirt & thongs/flatties shoes. with thongs sounds resort'ty & SPG'ish but for local weather, this combin works fine. We understand
