    Meh, I wear short(ish) skirts to work. I'm professional and I usually look a bit dowdy TBH, I don't have a lot of time for dressing myself up, chuck on something that's clean and off I go. Luckily my colleagues and my superiors have more important things to concern themselves with than what I'm wearing.

    Default Re: Short skirts?

    Come on girls... Why are we all getting so defensive about this?

    It is common knowledge that in MOST professional workplaces it is expected that skirts be to the knee.

    Why are we all nit picking at VicPark... I sure know I've made the "Dressed like a Hooker" analogy before.. . Who hasn't.

    That's not too short at all....
    Did you measure from the bottom or top of your knee? My guesstimate of the lady at works skirt was originally off. It was probably closer to 18-20 from the top of the knee. Wayyyyyy shorter than this pic. It was closer to her crack than her knee. It was tighter too (skin tight) and a skirt not a dress so perhaps that created an illusion of being shorter.

    Even if you dont see customers its still has no place in the work force, you are there to work if someone thinks you look like a street walker your fashion needs an over haul.

    Common knowledge to whom? Having spent a large portion of my working life in various public service departments I have never come across any instruction on skirt length and never known any of the women who wore skirts or dresses above the knee to be pulled aside for it.

    The rest of my time has been spent is both the private and hospitality sectors and there were no issues there either. In fact the company uniform in one private company had skirts that tended to sit above the knee.

    If you don't like it thats fine, but that doesn't mean a woman who wears a shorter skirt deserves to be slagged off as a hooker on the internet.

    It's a bloody awful thing to say on so many levels.
