So what’s the deal with calf-length skirts? How does one knows that one is wearing a calf-length skirt? Calf-length skirts are those skirts that fall a few inches past the knee enough for them not to be identified as midi and at the same time fall short enough not to be like feet-covering maxis. Simply-put, it hits right on your calves. Thus, its name. Most maxi skirts are lightweight and cotton-made and the midis, while modest enough, expose much of your legs. And these two are, with exception to maxis made in heavier textile and midis worn with tights or leggings, are not what you want for a fall and winter skirt. Since calf-length skirts are somewhere in between the two skirts and is, in my opinion, the most ideal skirt for fall or winter. But wearing one might lead to looking like those shopping cart or shopping bag ladies you see in the streets or you might look all too wrapped up in a wrong way. So here are some ways to wear calf-length skirts stylishly. A very chic way to wear calf-length skirts is to pair them with a snug piece of sweater and an over-the-knee boots. You would look absolutely feminine while keeping yourself warm during the cold days.
