Don’t start being negative about this trend and automatically think that you are too short or curvy for these look. Follow these simple tips to pull off the look flawlessly:

•Define the waistline: because there is so much fabric the skirt will hide your figure, so use belts to define your waistline or wear a fitted top. This will emphasize the slimmest part of your body.

•Proportion is key: this is the most important tip for those of you who are shorter. Don’t wear a big top with this trend. This will only make you look smaller and a few pounds heavier. We aren’t all stick figures that can pull this off.

•Don’t be shy; show some skin: your bottom half is already covered up, so pair the skirt with shirts that have a low neckline or lace. Don’t go overboard with showing some skin though, we don’t want it to look tacky.

•Shoes: just pick your favorite pair! You can wear any type of shoes with this trend, which is another perk.

•Length: this is another thing you have to get right; the skirt should brush the top of your shoes. This way you show your shoes off and you don’t look shorter
