Hems

You may or may not have read that this Autumn Winter (2013) trends include the skirt lengths mainly falling at knee length or mid-calf. Hurray I hear you cry, I can’t believe it’s taken so long for this to come round into fashion again!

I’ve collated some pictures of different ways a knee or mid-calf length piece can be incorporated into your professional wardrobe:

1. Try a pleated skirt in the ‘on-trend’ nude colour and an over the knee length.

2. Try a mid-calf length – a wrap around coat style picks out the fashionable length but also keeps your legs warm!

3. Just over the knee is a great length -In bright red this A-Line Bottega Venetta dress is striking and smart. Perhaps a circle skirt like this black one at Michael Kors is a better shape for your body (balancing out your wider shoulders or larger bust).

4. A high mid-calf length can work in a fitted pencil skirt style such as this lovely teal coloured Oscar de la Renta skirt.
