When I first thrifted this skirt, it felt very long compared to a lot of the skirts in my closet and I compensated for the loss of leg by wearing it with super-tall heels. Eventually, I've gotten accustomed to (and fond of) longer skirts, and I've happily worn them with flat shoes and without anxiety about looking shorter. Although I like a pair of wedges now and then, I walk so much that I truly prefer the comfort of flats with almost any outfit and this morning there was no doubt that flats would look just fine with a longer skirt. Plus the two stand up to windy days in the city and cover one's bum on the train--can't say "no" to pluses like those.
