Skirts can be sexy, sassy, flirty, businesslike,fun, or elegant but all of them definitely emphasize one quality and that is femininity. They come in a variety of lengths from short to long, include mini-skirts and maxi to accommodate a wide variety of body types. There are so many different styles of skirts that selecting the right length for your body type is not always easy. For example, maxi or long skirts are recommended for tall women and short skirts are best for petites, but also the wearer must have a good understanding of her body type so she can pick the right skirt to complement specific features and accentuate all of her assets.
