Remember when there were all kinds of rules about who at what age could and could not wear short skirts? Way back, oh about three years ago, maybe such rules actually existed. But that was before black tights and leggings were perfected, and before the stairmaster, spinning classes and the treadmill became almost every day occurrences. Any forty year old who does pilates three times a week is more than entitled to wear a short skirt even in the summer. Hey, she could probably go bare-legged in the winter.
In fact, could any season be more perfect for short skirts or dresses than right now, mid summer? A million times more comfortable than wearing jeans on a hot day let alone leggings they are always impish and flirty, and you can match them with a t-shirt and flat sandals, pull your hair back, and you've got a low maintenance look that is still a little glam as long as those gams are in shape. And the right hue-- pale white legs in a summery short skirt looks like match sticks poking out from beneath your outfit. Black and blue legs wont cut it either. But a little bit of self tanner (Clinique is the best-- it leaves a bronze hue on right away, then subtly tans your legs in a natural way) and a shine stick or even body oil can have those gams looking hip-hop dancer-like in no time.
I typed in "Short Skirts" on TheFind's general search, and found some cute summer styles at great prices. Order them now, and pair them with white oxford shirts, a pink t shirt, a mens black vest over a white t, or two t shirts layered together. My advice about footwear with short skirts: NO HIGH HEELS. I mean, do you want to look like Mariah Carey? Perhaps Gwyneth Paltrow can get away with this look as she did to the Iron Man premier but I read she works out three hours a day. Unless you work out three hours a day, stick to gladiator flats, flat boots, flip flops, sneakers, or even low heeled wedges with your short skirts. Otherwise you are going for the Mariah look which might be okay in a video, but not on the street. And Im not even sure about videos . . . .
