There is a certain level of taste that must be used in this circumstance. Even if you do have a Kate Moss or Gwyneth Paltrow body it does not mean you should snatch up all these latest looks. Here are a few tips for embracing the short skirts, to look and feel like a superstar.
- Wear a long button down cardigan with tights and mary-janes. Throw on a belt and you have the look. Simple and sexy and maybe a little short, but the opaque tights act as leggings to give you that extra warmth and protection!

Pair this look with opaque tights and boots for more of a winter look or wear it with sheer tights and heels for a out on the town evening. No one will know what you have going on under that dress!
- If you are petite and around 5 feet tall, this style looks great on your body type. Because your legs are shorter, this style can add some length to your body. It can show off your legs! It is best to pair these dresses with high heels, so you elongate your best feature. Embrace it!
