    I think you can wear a short skirt and have it look tasteful and you can wear a short skirt and have it look like cr@p.

    I this women in the OP had her boobs out, tatts out, looking like she had just come home from the over 28s and still wearing her 'picking up' makeup then yeah....I would by a little judgey.

    But if she had a short skirt, nice legs wearing tasteful professional garments/accessories with it....well...I would be jealous...but not a hater.

    Default Re: Short skirts?

    You can wear a short skirt and still look classy, it's just a matter of what you wear it with. I think it comes down to choosing to show either leg or cleavage, not both, either at work or for play. This is coming from a size 6, 21 yr old that is completely comfortable with my body.
    I think it's great if other people have enough confidence to wear something they feel good in, we shouldn't be ridiculing them.

    This is such a non issue that the only actual issue here is how women are policing how other women dress in 2012.

    VicPark - are you a man? I'd really like to know.
    Too short too even if hollywood says its ok lol

    There are many places that brothels are legal, they are monitored and tested and made to shower between clients. I thought we were talking about the street walkers, the illegal ones that walk the streets at night. The ones in the brothels I have seen dont have short skirts many of them usually wear much less clothing.

Here's the length of my dress today.
    I have worked in several law firms and never heard the rule of the skirt above the knees. No longer technically working for legal firm, but still work with lawyers and their staff and one wears short skirts in Court. Nobody bats an eyelid! I think the only place I pass where the skirts are noticeably long is past one of the really strict/culty churches.

    Seems kmart has a stricter policy than law firms, why I do not understand.

    i agree with janesmum completely, it's disappointing that other womens' insecurities can have such an impact on women going about their daily life in the year 2012.

    Default Short skirts?

    I've worked with a lot of street workers in Melbourne and regardless of drug habits or living arrangements, most have been clean. Not the most attractive, but clean.

    My guess is because they are bending over quite a bit picking up stock or stacking shelves so it's easier if they have more discreet clothing on.

    I am also a lawyer and worked at 2 of the largest law firms in Melbourne (Shelle would be interested if our paths ever crossed) and I know HR policies weren't wiritten about skirt lengths but if something was too short a person would be quietly spoken to. I am personally more offended by some of those awful "flesh" coloured tights women wear ugh but at the end of the day I don't really care what other people wear if it doesn't impact on me and my work.

    That would make sense sonja, although I really have more faith in women that they have the commonsense to wear suitable skirts without the 'knee' rule - I can bend over just fine in my skirt that sits well above the knees in fact, I think skirts are probably better than pants (hello tradies crack - funnily enough I haven't seen them compared to street walkers nor any talk about the 'appropriatness' of tradies giving us a constant eyefull of bum, but that doesnt bother me either, they're just bodies *shrug*)

    I too work for a law firm, and when it's court you need a jacket but no rules about length of skirts. In house we have an "up it, down it, through it" policy. If you can see up it, down it or through it don't wear it.

    Exactly. And nothing like the top of a thong being exposed on low slung pants.

    I suspect a lot of these companies have codes dating back to the 80s and need a bit of updating. Also reflect the shopper I suspect ie granny doesn't want to see your butt cheeks when she's buying her undies. Rather than having a technical policy about certain number of CMs above the knee they just say knee length.

    Yep I've heard that too. I agree it's a good guide. I loathe having to talk to someone when I can see down their shirt almost to their belly button.
