While we agree that fashion should be about expressing yourself and wearing whatever makes you feel good, when you’re trying to decide what to wear, buy, borrow, or invest in, it helps to know what works best with your body. Consider it a fail-safe backup plan, for any time you’re in a pinch. On that note, today we’ve narrowed down the most flattering skirt styles and lengths for your height. Of course, that doesn’t mean you have to limit your skirt selection. But if you’re stuck trying to decide between a few silhouettes, you might want to keep this guide in mind. Scroll through for a rundown of skirt styles by height and, of course, to shop our picks.
