Before we embark on this new adventure, let’s take a look at the hemlines we will cover. Definitions differ a bit (what is defined here as “hilo” we know as a mullet, and tee is always tea to me), but let’s use this to get a visual before we begin.
Starting at the beginning, let’s take a look at some ankle-length and ballerina hemlines. The length remains the same, but the difference is in the fullness – ankle length is slim, ballerina blossoms to a wider circumferance at the hem. The passion for this hemline comes and goes, but we found some vintage and current examples.
Then Princess Daisy showed off her ankles in this evening look with a slight bubble hem.
This is slightly longer than tea length in a daytime skirt. Princess Margaret makes it swish.
The two British princesses showed off some tulle and sparkle and ankles for a festive evening look. Margo is wearing the dress shown in the (huge) header photo.
Definitely an ankle grazer here on Crown Princess Victoria.
Marie pulls off this delicately pretty look.
This was described as ankle length by the designer, although you could argue that the top layer is so transparent so as to be invisible and it’s actually tea length. I’ll leave it to you all to decide.
Show off your ankles, people!
