Reader Kelly e-mailed me this request:
I would love to wear heels and when I was younger and without scoliosis I did; now they seem to be a thing of the past though I keep trying. Could you do a post about flats? Specifically how to make them look good with dresses ( I don’t think they do) or anything for that matter.
So I’ve written a bit about flats and have several posts in the archive with visual examples, and I sent those along to Kelly:
- This post talks about making flats work with fancy dresses
- This covers balancing shoes and shorts
But let’s talk about flats with dresses. Of the non-fancy variety. And I can hear many of you scoffing through your computer screens as I am a confirmed heels lover myself, but at least give me a shot!

Lovely reader Jenni (from Helsinki!) sent this question via e-mail:
I’m thinking about a subject, which I think you haven’t covered yet (or at least I don’t remember): how to wear coats with skirts and dresses and especially how different hem lengths and silhouettes work together. The climate here in Helsinki must be pretty similar to what you have there in MN, which means winters are COLD. Therefore it would be great to read more about coat lengths compared to skirt lengths. Example from my life: I was wearing a lovely felt A-line skirt, that hit below the knees, then realized all my trench coats were considerably shorter and my nice outfit was totally ruined after I added a coat. I had go out and couldn’t change the skirt but I ended up feeling stupid the whole day… As the winter is approaching it would be great to hear your thoughts and how you’ve solved these kinds of problems.
