I'm not talking about really short skirts, but just short enough that it covers the thighs midway. I was going to buy a skirt yesterday that I really liked that I thought was flattering, but my friend told me I was too old for them. She said girls in their late 20's and older should wear them at the knee or longer. Also, apparently I am too old to wear tank tops and bikini's now. I'll be 28 soon.
See if it all depends on your body type. If the skirt, its type, color etc suits and flatters your body. Then it is a green signal go wear that skirt. Make sure you choose a skirt without patterns it suits girls of your age. Also wear neutral colours like black brown grey etc. You can wear others colours too if you feel more confident in it. As for bikinis well if you can rock it wear it. :)
28 is old? Wow... im 28 and i feel as young as ever. Its not how old you are, its how old you feel. If you feel good about youself then you go and buy that skirt and wear it with style, regardless of what anyone else tells you. No one knows themselves better than their very ownselves, and if you feel good ms, then dont worry, good luck.
I think it is mostly about what you feel comfortable wearing. I've seen some older women, 50's plus, in skirts that were caught by the wind at the Bay Bridge, an they looked really hot, but they wear more sensible panties!! Age is just a number! Some people can look ten years younger with just their clothes. Wear what you feel comfortable with, and tell the 'haters' to F-off!!
Dear age is just a number game:)... All u need is a good figure so u end up looking good in short skirt. My mum in her 30s also wore short skirts cas she had a good figure n skirt suited her figure very well:) if y think u look good, go ahead, wear it n, prove ur friend that u r stil in ur sweet sixteen ( just make sure it compliments ur figure) :)
