If you buy a mid-length skirt, do NOT wear it with booties.  You need to show some foot in order to lengthen the leg line. If you don’t, it will look like your legs are the same length as a Hobbit’s.

    I agree about avoiding booties, but I don't love those platform nude peeptoes in the second photo, either. Any suggestions? In the past, I've worn kitten heels with skirts like these.

    I HAVE to wear heels with skirts of this length, and even then I look like I have wide, stumpy legs. I actually avoid skirts of this length at all cost.

    I really like the flowy, pleated, chiffon skirts lately. Belle, I hope you will post a “how to wear” guide! I have my eye on a few skirts like these, but I am clueless as to what goes on top!

    you're the best!

    Agreed on styling. I also wonder how pleats look with hips. Mine are ample enough.
