Girls, why are skirts considered more formal?
I have read on here that a lot of girls (not all of them) only wear skirts when going somewhere more formal or when wanting to dress up nicer. Why can skirts not be causal wear for more girls?

I don't wear them as causal wear because they are not as comfortable as pants. I always have that extra worry that my skirt might hitch up, fall down, fly up, rip, or get caught on something so I don't like wearing them that much.

Wearing skirts to dress up doesn't mean skirts *can't* be casual. They come in a lot of different styles--some are formal, some are more casual. Some can be worn either way depending on what you wear with them.
I prefer dresses to skirts though.
idk. I wear them only when I feel like wearing them.
They aren't formal to me...dresses are more formal than skirts.
i think it just has t do with sexist way ack when but now adays I have no idea...im wearing a skirt just lounging around right now but I agree that when I go out later I'll look dressy lol because of that seemingly being a commonish view
I don't know. I wear skirts almost all the time. They make me feel comfortable and attractive at the same time.
I wear skirts and pantyhose all the time, some people think it's too formal but I love the look and looks I get from the guys, they always think I look sexy.
they're not it depends on the skirt, like pencil skirts would be more formal, but floral skirts would not
Skirts are formal and casual. It all depends on the material of the skirt and what you wear with it/how you dress it up (accessories).
I am doing to post my links up here... No room down there
Casual... link link Formal... link link
I think dresses are far more formal than skirts. It goes pants, then skirts, then dresses. It's because it shows off femininity and isn't as comfortable as dressing down, which are pants and jeans.
I wear skirts all the time. Both in winter and summer.
They are to me because the outfit looks more girlie for me
It depends on whether you are sporty or girlie or punk or nerdy personally I'm sporty so I can't run around and stuff in a skirt but if I'm going somewhere formal I probably won't be running around
I think teenage years ruined it when I was a kid I use to wear skirts and not care but then I don't know what happened in middle school I guess being 'too skinny' got to me so for me pants are casual
Because denim shorts are the way to go. :P
With my body shape, bodycon/tailored skirts are the only skirts that look good and I do not consider them casual.

You won't get any real answers on here because everyone has their own opinion
The fact that they say they won't wear it on a casual day is probably because they simply don't like wearing them (tomboys) or they feel like they don't look good in them etc.. I see girls wearing dresses and skirts all the time. Their built for them, so..all the better :)
