Fortunately, the shoe rules for long skirts are much simpler than you might think. In fact, it's really just a balancing act.
Longer skirts and dresses cover the majority of your body. To create a look that is flowing rather than broken or unbalanced, your footwear will need to accomplish one of the following three things:
- Visually become a part of the skirt.
Think of tall boots that are covered by the hemline of the skirt
- Add length or height beneath the hemline of the skirt, so that the skirt will seem shorter, or your legs will seem longer.
High heels that show a lot of skin work well for this.
- Work with the lines of the skirt to create a look that is balanced.
For example, a chunky wedge heel will work with a fuller skirt, but might be too clunky for a long fitted skirt.
