Glorious Goodwood Races- Glamorous Outfit no 3 is mid length with chunky heels

Maxis and the shorter dresses are the easiest lengths to team with flat footwear. The maxis because they hide most of the shoe and the shorter dress because there is more leg exposed which elongates them without the aid of a high heel. The harder length is just below the knee, if you wear completely flat heels, the legs are not elongated and can look shorter than they actually are. As most women want their legs to look long, this is not a good look. So for this length a wedge or thicker high heel is a better alternative.

So you may ask why wear this skirt length anyway?
Well it may not be a great length for elongating the legs but it is a great length for enhancing the shape of your legs.
 If you have a perfect pair of pins then show them off with the shorter skirt. But most of us have fatter thighs and sometimes chunky knees, so if the skirt stops just below the knees where our legs go in the most, then this creates the illusion of skinnier and shapelier legs as only our slimmer ankles and calves are on show.
However when we wear flat shoes this illusion disappears.
The length of this 50’s style Marilyn dress from Jane & Marilyn falls just below the knee but the fullness of the skirt helps make the parts of the leg on show look slimmer.In crisp white heavy cotton for that effortlessly cool and classic look Price £795

The heels on these French Connection Peggie sandals are thick but still high to give the leg more length.
The colours may be pale, but these sandals will make your feet twinkle in the sunlight.
Were £120 now £47.50

The semi tailored look of the dress with a touch of halter neck glamour would also look great teamed with a panama hat. Not just for the gentlemen, panamas can be worn by the ladies too, but we have a choice of more colours!!
