I love the look of a long gown for a gala but I also love the long skirts that have made their way back into our everyday attire. Last week, I got to meet the amazing Rachel Zoe at my friend, Neiman Marcus creative director, Ken Downing's home. She was, of course, wearing a long dress!
Here are some of the tips that make the long look work:
-Balance is key! If your skirt is full, wear a fitted top. If your skirt is fitted, wear a loose blouse.
-If you are tall, you can probably pull off a long skirt with flats or sandals but, if you are not, wear a wedge or heel.
-A dramatic accessory goes well with the dramatic look! A stack of colorful bangles or a pair of statement earrings are a great way to make a statement.
-For an evening look, your hem can go all the way to the floor. For daytime, the toe of your shoes should peek out of the bottom of your skirt.
