That shirtdress is an unacceptable length. Acceptable longer lengths are:

Just below the knee

At the midpoint of the widest point of your calf - like how you’re “supposed” to fill a wine glass THIS IS WHAT MIDI LENGTH IS, PEOPLE


top of foot


People think “midi” length means anything between knee length and ankle and it is a tragic misunderstanding. Skirt lengths that fall below the knee but above the mid-point of the calf can be okay, depending on skirt style and footwear choice, but lengths that fall anywhere on the calf below the midpoint make even the longest, slenderest, beautifulest legs look like stumpy, shapeless misfortunes. I get how this happens when you’re just buying shit off the rack at Target, or whatever, but it is absolutely inexcusable in instances like this when a TV personality is being professionally dressed.

Also, fuck Megyn Kelly. You, know, generally. For being a terrible human being.
