The Long and Short of It: Denim Skirts

I love a good denim skirt, but there's a fine line between boho-chic and sister wife. A few rules of thumb: Keep the washes classic and the silhouettes on the slim side (no dirndls, please!); the taller you are, the longer you can go. Here are three stylish options.

The Maxi

A fitted silhouette is most flattering, though a little flare at the bottom enables shuffle-free walking. Wear with an off-the-shoulder top, a fringed bag and sandals for an on-trend '70s vibe.
