How old is too old to wear a mini skirt
« on: January 03, 2012, 11:49:26 AM »
Was out shopping with a male friend today and he keeps insiting I should treat myself to a mini skirt but my argument is I haven't got the legs and I'm too old.  I'm 35.  He says I look 23 and that I do have the legs.  Just wondered if anyone here thinks 35 is too old to wear a mini...providing you don't look your age.

I don't think 35 is too old to wear a mini skirt if you have a good figure and good legs.  Don't wear one at any age if you have a figure like short and plump.

LOL Joe I wouldn't wear one in this weather, brrrr but wouldn't mind doing so when it warms up.  Madison:  thanks for teh vote of confidence.  I do have very long, slim legs so maybe I could get away with it.

Only thing that drives me crazy is when you see girls with their g-strings hanging out their pants lol SOOOO no matter how tall, short, skinny or chubby or if you have the right legs or not. NOTHING can be as bad as the g-string look  ;D

I think there are kinds of mini-skirts that you could wear.  Tom Hanks' wife was on tv last year ? showing how to dress sassy over 30!  http://www.oprah.com/oprahshow/Rita-Wilsons-Makeovers/10 I think it has good inspiration.  Find an actress you really admire and look at her for fashion advice.  Maybe get a skirt that isn't mini but has a sassy slit so when you sit and cross your legs there is some knee?  Try a bunch on I say!!!!!! Go for it :)

Apparently a UK firm called Diet Chef conducted a survey recently and asked a bunch of people how old is too old to wear certain items of clothing.  The top age for mini skirts came out at 35!  However I've seen plenty of celebrities with killer legs that can carry off mini skirts well into their 40s!

Wild Thing, after reading and laughing all about the mini skirt and "he" wants you to wear them.  You might ask him how he thinks he'd look in a mini-skirt and if he'll wear one, you will too and you can freeze together. 

It always gets me when guys what their girl (friends) to wear skimpy, sexy, meaning chilly and freezing clothes.  If the girls are all for it ok, but usually people are more for comfort.  I think they have Spanks undershirts for men.  Maybe we can get a whole new idea going here.  LOL.  Think of some things that you might like to see him in (for fun).  I think this could be lots of fun.  Lucy

OK, how many of us just googled Spanx t-shirts?!?  WildThing, I say if you like the way you look in it, go for it!  Enjoy feeling the way you look.  One of the only perks about getting older is caring less what others think of the way you look and act.  Enjoy those long legs of yours!
