Calf Grazing Skirts at Peter Som, Marc Jacobs, and Costello Tagliapietra.
Style tip? Calf grazing skirts aren’t naturally the most flattering cut, as most womens’ optimal skirt length is at or around the knee. But what these calf grazing skirts lack in figure flattery, they compensate in retro, Hitchcock heroine appeal. The key to wearing these calf grazing skirts without looking matronly is to keep the silhouette of the skirt slim, like an exaggerated pencil skirt. Finish the look off up top with a wildly patterned blouse, as at Costello Tagliapietra, or a perfectly tailored bodice, as at Marc Jacobs. What kind of shoes to wear with calf grazing skirts? Heels, of course, to create the longest, leanest leg line possible.
