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.
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.
