I'm so, so happy that hemlines are getting longer again this fall. Minis haven't disappeared but calf-length is making a comeback and I, for one, am relieved. It's important to make sure that the length works for you. There is a part of your calf that is the thickest and you never want the skirt to stop there or you'll look like you have tree trunks for legs. But full, a-line, or straight, there are some great options. You can do this with practically any of the other trends out there this season- 40's inspired, military/utilitarian, rocker a la Stevie Nicks. Regardless of your look, find a way to add a little sex appeal since the skirt length is so modest. As a side note, I think Stevie Nicks is a bit of a stretch for anyone over the age of 35. However, the outfit I'm showing here is Stevie a little more sophisticated and going to a cocktail party. If you wanted to do this for daytime, change the bustier to a tank and throw a cropped jacket on top. Keep the shoes and other accessories to a more daytime look and it could be cool. Still...I'm trying to picture myself at lunch in Old Town with a black tulle skirt on. Probably not going to happen.
