Hem length is one of the most effective illusions of form.

Here are some rules.
1. The shorter the legs, the shorter the skirts.
2. Color and fabric weight elongates or shortens the length silhouette.
  • The darker the color or the heavier the fabric, the shorter you should wear it.
  • Lightweight fabric such as silk can be worn a bit longer to distract its float and won't appear short.
  • The color of your stockings and shoes affect or exaggerate the length of a hemline.
Some basic rules for pant's length
1. The front hem should touch the top of the shoe covering the entire instep.
2. The back pant hem can be a little longer may be a quarter of an inch.
3. 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.
