The proper hem length can make or break your outfit and your appearance. The best hem length for anyone depends on their age, body type, and height. In general someone under 5 feet 4 inches looks best when their hem hits mid knee or a little shorter. Usually anyone under 21 can go shorter if they have a slim figure and good looking knees. Skirts that are too short can make you look cheap but hemlines above the knee look great with opaque tights.
Tip: Females under 5 feet 4 inches and overweight should forget about wearing dresses and skirts. Classic dark pants with a dark top will be more flattering.

I can’t remember when there have been so many choices in shoe styles and hem lengths. It seems like anything goes! But not for business attire!
Dressing For Your Body Type
