I know a lot of you don't wear dresses. but some of us do. I have tons of skirts and dresses, mostly maxi length. Looking at the new styles it seems we are still in the whatever length you prefer world. What is your preference for skirt / dress length?

I LOVE to wear dresses and skirts!

Dresses are great as it gives a woman a complete look -- I also love dresses as I feel like I am saving time by focusing on 1 piece rather than coordinating on 2+ items. My preference is to wear skirts/dresses that are right above the knee. That is the perfect length for me as I don't have to worry about tripping on  my super long dress (I'm a short woman) and revealing too much (such as the case with super short skirts). Pencil skirts are great as it allows me to be elegant, playful and sexy.

I love wearing dresses and skirts with a pair of luxurious thigh highs -- there's something about the band that makes me feel confident.

I like at the knee the most, but also long skirts too.  Even a little above the knee works too, as long as it's the right style!
