It isn’t the flats which should determine the skirt, but the legs which must emerge from beneath it, and the torso above. In other words, the wheels must suit the entire “package”.

@stanleybmanly – I get what you are saying but the skirts are what I am asking about-the overall silhouette is what I am interested in.

I’ m not sure about what skirt looks good with what shoes, but I couldn’t help but notice that some of these girls aren’t even wearing shoes, so I suppose that implies versatility?

Pencil just above the knee, classy, smart & casual.

@josie -I wonder why they wouldn’t put shoes on the model? After all, they are trying to sell something,aren’t they?

I don’t know. Marketing.
I recommend anything on the bottom row

@ucme – I am walking with a pronounced limp so heels aren’t an option.
It’s a dressy occasion and I do have a dress cane. XD
I personally like pencil skirts and have dresses with that shape, so I might go with that.

Flats=casual so just say “No” to pencil dresses. Plus, pencil dresses are not flattering for most women.
I’d go with a long, loose maxi dress. Maybe not all the way to the floor kind of maxi, but at least half way down the calf.

@lucillelucillelucille A dress cane, cool, bet you pull that look off well.

@ucme -I’m not gonna do it. LOL!
...and I do :)

@lucillelucillelucille For a minute there, I kinda doubted you XD

@ucme – You would not be wrong to think that. XD

This is an ignorant male answering – but doesn’t the choice of skirt have some relation to the shape of the body?

Some butts shouldn’t wear short skirts, I would think.

lucillelucillelucille's avatar

@elbanditoroso – IMO, yes.Then again, I have seen some larger women that have worn things that I personally wouldn’t have chosen.I do admire confidence though,much more that I would have a problem with someone’s choice of clothing.
I am in good shape and could wear something short but have aged myself out of that option. :)So there is that.Lol!

I don’t know that it’s confidence as much as being self delusional. I’m sure all these folks think they’re looking fly.
