The hemline length that is the most flattering on most women is mid knee, just above or just below the knee. The hem length in style for holiday parties is the one that is most flattering on you. The perfect hemline for anyone depends on their height, weight and age and can be determined by checking the mirror. In general short women look better in mid-knee, top of the knee or just above the knee hemlines and tall women look great in longer length skirts / hemlines such as mid calf or ankle length. When wearing skirts or dresses with hemlines above the knee be sure your knees look good or wear dark stockings or tights. Also if you are older than 40 avoid hemlines that are too short to look chic.
Tip: If your legs are not attractive avoid anything that attracts attention to them. Opt for pants!
