How Short Is Too Short?

Trya Banks Age: 37

Whether we choose to admit it or not we all have certain features we love about ourselves the most.  I have to admit the one thing I can boast about is my luscious legs!…it’s the best part I love about me, so when I’m out raiding the sale rails and the er…not so on sale rails,  I can’t help but buy skirts and dresses that will highlight my best features.

Sometimes though I think, I should leave it to the teens and the younger lot in their early twenties.  In a way I think wearing less clothing and showing more skin can make you appear older in some ways!

When it comes to the celebs it would seem it’s ok.  So what I want to know is, Is there an age when it just ain’t right to have your lovely legs on display? Is it ever possible to be classy wearing a short skirt or dress after a certain age? AND is it ok for women over a certain age to wear short skirts/dresses just because they still look good when we do?

I personally think these ladies look amazing! So I may Just Keep a few of the ‘I can still get in a car and save my pride and dignity’ skirts and dresses. You know those outfits where you think if you dropped something on the floor it may just have to stay there!  lol.

    For me, age doesnt matter. It comes to personality and confidence. Some people even in their teens will never wear anything short. This is the sort of person they are and there are others who are very confidence and coupled with their good looking body,  they will want to show their legs and tights no matter the age.

    How short is too short? Anything far above my knee is too short for me.

    Can do mini frocks; but must not be tight at the same time or micro. Decent enough to climb the stairs without walking sideways or concerned the male coming behind is having a blast watching me climb.
