Word has it the Queen has some new rules for Kate Middleton's wardrobe, one of those rules being no more bare knees! I personally don't put much stock in this rumor, but it did get me thinking about how cute and flattering longer hemlines can be. From sexy pencil skirt-style dresses to full-on maxi dresses, here are some great picks that are pretty enough for a Duchess  ... but affordable for the rest of us!

What skirt or dress length do you usually go for?
