You said:  No to Midi Skirts, with a superclose 51-49 split in votes.

Style tip? Skirt lengths are trending downward this Fall- with midi and maxi length skirts gaining in popularity.  Midi length skirts, which hit at mid-calf, are somewhat unflattering, as they visually cut your legs in an awkward way - and can make you look shorter.  Petite women, we advise you to steer clear of these midi length skirts and opt for a more flattering knee-length.  For those of you who would like to try the midi skirt, two tips: (1) Pair your skirt with heels for some extra leg length, and (2) Try layering tops of different length (as does the model in the photo) for a more visually interesting overall look.  With this skirt, however, we’d recommend wearing a slip underneath.

Next question: Fingerless gloves are more for show than a necessity, but they sure do make a statement. But what do you think?  Tell us, would you wear fingerless gloves?  Cast your vote on the sidebar!

    Actually, I think fingerless gloves can be very useful! Any time you need to warm up your hands without sacrificing all of your fingertip dexterity and traction. For example, if your workplace has thermostat wars, you may want something like this for typing, small crafts, assembly, or other tasks that require fine motor skills.

    I love fingerless gloves! My 85 year old house can be quite chilly in winter, and some days fingerless gloves are the only thing keeping my hands from freezing up while I’m on the computer. Of course, I’m thinking about warm and fuzzy wool gloves, rather than the thin leather ones you linked to– I think I can agree that *those* particular gloves are more for show.

    I have to admit, I like this length of skirt when it is a really superbly fitting pencil skirt. A lot of women in the 40s wore pencil skirts at this length and it was stunning.
