I’m in need of some style advice. I have tons of skirts/dresses that are just way too short (especially for work)

I’d hate to get rid of all of them, so I’m open to any ideas, leggings perhaps?

Thanks girls!

leggings would work. or wear a lace slip underneath and let it peek at the bottom which will add length. you can also wear them in the winter time and wear tights with it, they are thick and will not show much. it just depends on how short is short.

is it short enough that it still looks like a dress or too short that it looks like a tunic? if it looks like a tunic, i would go with leggings. if it still looks like a dress, i would go with tights! and the lace slip underneath is a good idea. :)

Can you wear a loose petticoat under them? It might give it some length.

Love the leggings and tights idea! I live in FL so its 98 degrees here, looks like I’ll have to wait until mid January to wear them lol..

you can try layering the skirts with longer skirts underneath. you can also try out our leggings too for a FL friendly fabric. we’re actually based in Miami, FL and all of our girls wear our leggings all the time. email heather@welovecolors.com. she might be able to get a sample to you! hope this can help you out :)

Just wear some cute shorts underneath! That’s what I do when i’m worried about something being too short! Lace or biker shorts could look nice under a short dress, if it’s more like tunic-length then some tailored shorts could look good!

try wearing another longer skirt in a coordinating color under it, or a lacy/ruffly underskirt

I often have this same issue. In order to wear them to work I usually pair them with black basic leggings, or wait to wear them when my boss is our of town.

my dresses that are too short, I wear a skirt over the bottom half, or fold the top of the dress and instantly have a skirt. if you have those dresses that just don’t do that, wearing leggings is perfect. my job now being a promo girl, the shorter the better! but my previous jobs wearing leggings wouldnt have been acceptable. just dont get rid of them is all i have to say!
