There is a major trend that I have fallen in love with:  The Long Trend!

I love the look of a long gown for a gala but I also love the long skirts that have made their way back into our everyday attire.  Last week, I got to meet the amazing Rachel Zoe at my friend, Neiman Marcus creative director, Ken Downing’s home.  She was, of course, wearing a long dress!

Here are some of the tips that make the long look work:

-Balance is key!  If your skirt is full, wear a fitted top.  If your skirt is fitted, wear a loose blouse.

-If you are tall, you can probably pull off a long skirt with flats or sandals but, if you are not, wear a wedge or heel.

-A dramatic accessory goes well with the dramatic look!  A stack of colorful bangles or a pair of statement earrings are a great way to make a statement.

-For an evening look, your hem can go all the way to the floor.  For daytime, the toe of your shoes should peek out of the bottom of your skirt.
