Tips of Hem Length

Hem length is one of the most effective illusions of form.

Here are some rules.

ü  The shorter the legs, the shorter the skirts.

ü  Colour and fabric weight elongates or shortens the length silhouette.

ü  The darker the colour or the heavier the fabric, the shorter you should wear it.

ü  Lightweight fabric such as silk can be worn a bit longer to distract its float and won't appear short.

ü  The colour of your stockings and shoes affect or exaggerate the length of a hemline.

Some basic rules for pants’ length

ü  The front hem should touch the top of the shoe covering the entire instep.

ü  The back pant hem can be a little longer may be a quarter of an inch.

ü  Too short hem length on dress pants does not only look borrowed from your younger brother, but it looks ridiculous, especially in the corporate world.
