    Default Short skirts?

    I'm not sure how the OP relates to "slipping etiquette standards". And the main point of your argument doesn't really make sense either. Cave women would have laughed their butts off at women in the 19th century wearing hoop skirts and corsets, because that would have seemed ridiculous and inappropriate to them.

    Default Short skirts?

    Depends on the workplace but in an office environment I think short dresses/shift dresses and skirts are appropriate with tights/opaque stockings.

    I think at the end of the day, you are being paid to work and your attire should be appropriate. A skirt that does not adequately cover you and that you could not move around comfortably should not be worn.

    I think that people do judge harshly and at the end of the day you represent your company so you should be.

    No one is saying knees are rude, I don't care if I see an employees knees.

    I will however judge if I see an employee with a handkerchief for a skirt.

    Default Re: Short skirts?

    I really don't think 15cm above the knee is shocking. Really? It's shocking? I am somewhere in crazy land with Benji.... Seriously, go measure where 15cm goes to. I did. Here's me in a work dress (granted, 8.5 months pregnant and with crazy bed hair but you get the idea)
    That hemline is 15cm. It's a short skirt (probably one of my shorter ones) but i've never had anyone do a double take when they saw me wear it because it's so unbelievably short.
