Get the fit right. The top of the skirt ought to be snug to streamline your hips. The fabric should have some drape to it, and the hem should hover just above the ground, without dragging.

If the skirt is made from a light, fluid fabric, consider wearing a short knit dress or a long fitted tunic on top. The result is a beautiful, super-dramatic silhouette.

A long skirt is intense, so to turn it into a casual weekend piece, try pairing it with basics (like an army jacket and a rumpled scarf) and wear it as you would your favorite pants.
