Try pairing a short skirt with open-toe heels to make your legs look longer as well as to make it look dressier. For a more casual look or for day wear, try pairing a skirt with brogues. Short skirts and shorts can also look great with ankle high boots. Remember, ballerina style flats are notoriously tough to carry off with short skirts and are best avoided.

LRT Tip: Your legs become the center of attention stands when you wear something short, so keep working out those legs and add a bit of shimmer or bronzer to ensure your legs look their best.
