10th Commandment: April 15

Midi-Length Full Skirt (Asos, $63)

The swishy, knee length full skirt is really hot right now.  Reminiscent of a bygone era, this skirt is bright and perfect for spring.  I’ll take one in every color.

    Belle, How would this look on a gal with a thicker bottom half?

  2. B says:

    As a girl with a thicker bottom half, if you can define your waist and choose the right length, it would probably look just fine. Experiment and try on a number of skirts – there can be a big difference in a skirt that hits right above the knee, right at the knee, or just below the knee. The most flattering length for my larger calves is just above the knee; showing my kneecap creates a longer line. Even at 5'11, a skirt that hits me just below the knee (unless it's a pencil) makes me look stumpy.

    Great pick! I ordered a few things from ASOS as soon as online ordering became available in the U.S. and I've been meaning to order more. I'm heading over to the site to see what they have now!

  4. Belle says:

    B's right. It's all about the waist, and the view from the rear. But it's definitely worth a try.
