There is something truly appealing with tea length skirts and being from a certain group who’ve viewed this trend as unattainable I will be the first to tell you not to knock it before you actually give it a whirl.  Having run track for so many years my legs have developed an athletic silhouette once described as too contradictory for such a feminine article of clothing.  Years I’ve lived with this notion until recently when a friend decided that would be the length I would have to wear in her wedding.  I cringed silently hoping, like me and all other brides, her decision would change at least twelve times before the actual big day.  Nonetheless the day came when I was forced to try it on and to my surprise it worked.  My muscular calves were given a more dainty silhouette and if sat high on my waist, the over all appearance was extremely flattering.

That was a few years ago and ever since then my wardrobe has experienced a severe need of this length.  If you once fell within the same train of thought consider today an experimental day and give this length a good, thorough shot. Although the fancier side of this trend is preferred by most, I’m particularly fond of the casual side with a little less volume.  Either way its a great transitional length from winter to spring and into summer depending on the material so that at least a good six months of wear which is far more than you can say for that investment coat you splurged on….
