The Playful: Above the Knee

The Refined: Knee-Length

Knee-length styles, especially those that fall just below the knee, can be extremely flattering on many shapes and sizes! This is because when a dress hem finishes at the narrowest part of the leg, it draws the eye to that area. Luckily, there are usually the greatest number of options in knee-length styles since they can be worn formally, casually and as work-wear!

The Polished: Midi-Length

Midi-length or tea-length dresses have well and truly made their come-back in recent years. A flattering, elongating length, these dresses create a polished look on anyone. Opt for a form fitting pencil shaped botton to channel prim-and-proper, or an A-line bottom to achieve a feminine look.
