I'm in my first year of college and I've noticed that from this year and the last 4 years of high school it seems like basically all of the girls I see wear really short shorts, short tight skirts or jeans/sweatpants/yoga pants. I can get the whole jeans/sweatpants/yoga pants thing. My question is why do almost none of these girls wear proper length skirts (to around the knee) or maybe maxi skirts or something.Is it just the age group of the girls or is their no modesty anymore? I live in Florida by the way, in case that factors in to your answer.
I think you named almost all the options besides dresses. Skirts, shorts, and pants... what else is there? Generally, attending classes is a casual occasion so I wouldn't wear my business suit or prom dress.
But you're right - many girls where clothes that are way too small or short.
It's the competition.. each girl wants to be the hottest, and unfortunately to acquire that you have to apply the " the less, the better" notion. Yea they claim it's because they are more comfy and all that, but I don't believe it.
Knee length skirts are great for the office and I wear them often, but in the spring an summer when it's warm (and often humid and sticky), shorter shorts and skirts are more comfortable for casual wear.
Maxi skirts are trendy now, but they look awful on me. It looks like I'm wearing a curtain.
I don't wear sweatpants out of the house or yoga pants to anywhere but yoga/the gym/quick errands. Jeans are comfortable and versatile.
Because its impractical to wear that in college. Life is fast paced and busy so that type of dress is reserved for business/special occasions. Some girls do dress that way, but the younger ones tend not to for comfort and busy lifestyle purposes.
Yes times have changed, I'm 27 years old and sometimes I feel old due to the fact that girls this days wear their clothes tooo short, in my opinion only prostitutes would wear something like that but my friends tell me that times changes and girls are more liberal,
Its good to know thought that I'm not the only person who has this opinion.
Knee length skirs are business attire. A lot or girls are still figuring out how to dress and short skirts are the most common "young" looking dress/skirt on the market. A lot of sundresses do come in reasonable lengths, but it seems that most clothes for young women either expose a lot of cleaveage or a lot of leg. But nobody wants to look old. I don't think its a lack of modesty as much as its hard to find classy clothes that don't make you look like a soccer mom, especially as women in their forties dress much hipper than they used to. Kinda like college guys in graphic tees -- they aren't ideal, they're overdone, but they are "young."
