This streamlined combination—using two alluring, ladylike shapes—is the height of elegance.

Putting it together:

  • The skirt's hem should just skim the bottom of the kneecap. To balance the longer length, pick a curve-hugging cut; woven fabrics will work well here.

  • Choose a top that's structured, slightly roomy through the body, and hits at the hip; short or three-quarter sleeves keep the proportions right.

  • For the most flattering look, definitely opt for heels. And since the feel of this outfit is so pared-down, go for simple, architectural jewelry, like a cuff and hoop earrings.
