Why don't girls wear skirts anymore?

Women rarely wear skirts nowadays, why do girls prefer Jeans and casual looks?
I prefer skirts, they're more modest, classy and feminine than Jeans. I'm not against women wearing Jeans but skirts are way better. Jeans on women was considered crossdressing back then lol Why don't girls wear skirts anymore?Why don't girls wear skirts anymore?

  • I married a girl that wears only dresses and skirts. I love her for it. We get stopped in the street all the time with comments about how classy we both look. Sometimes we get "are you going to a wedding?" where we reply "no, this is how we dress". She goes out in her 1950s dresses and I pair her with my fedora, 1930s jacket, and trousers.

    LOTS of girls stare at her in envy... wishing they could have the "confidence" to wear what she wears. And girls stare at me wishing their man looked as good as I do.

    Skirts do look better on women because it has got a precise feminine quality too it. It moves better when they walk, and the general shape is cute...

  • Because a lot of woman have taken being a woman out of context and they have this mindset that they can do it better than men and that kinda junk and so they lost respect for what it is like to be a woman so they don’t and if they are wearing skirts they look like little sluts cause it’s so tight and short you can see everything

    • I don’t becuase my thighs rubs and it hurts jenas make me look slimmer so that’s why I wear them nothing to do with thinking I better or worse. But the excuse People look up them is like I said just a excuse Because if they were long and was modest a man wouldn’t be able to look up Their skirts. But I don’t wear them becuase when I was in church that’s the only time I wore them and if I wear skirts now I’m giving the people I know the wrong thought if I’m wearing a skirt they will think I am back in church and I am no Hypocrite So I wear pants to make sure they know I’m not trying to act like I’m in church and then not be.

  • Inconvenient. No pockets. Blows up and can show underwear. Not warm. Hard to run or sit in. Plus they can be uncomfortable and slide up plus a lot of them are really short

    • Women should wear bags, It can show it sometimes, you can wear them in summer, why would you need to run? You don't need to buy the short one

  • Many different reasons why from what I know of. However, there are plenty of girls who wear them. But as I can only speak for myself, I also know why a good amount refuses too:

    1. The feminist movement is one of them because most girls these days want to appear dominant and desire respect from men. <-- Other girls/Women
    2. Pants are easy and adaptable. <--- Me
    3. It Attracts the wrong kind of attention sexually from men. Men staring/lusting. <---Me [sometimes], other women
    4. Often times to be used during special occasions.
    5. When in the mood.
    6. When the weather is too hot and you don't have anything else light to wear.
    7. Too many people sexualizing them when its bad enough most skirts are short. Trendsetter related. Trying to break social trends. -_-
    8. Competitive world. Many women are discriminated against because they wear a skirt/dress. <--- Other women.

    Again, this is for those it applies to. I don't have personal opinions about girls needing to wear them. They have the right to do it or not as long as they have the right intentions and its not inappropriate.

  • I dont know why but women look feminine and stylish when wearing skirts or dresses. I like to wear dresses or skirts to work. In fact The General manager (who is a woman) and me are the only ladies at work who uses dresses or skirts from time to time. The rest of the women at work, not one, uses skirts or dresses, they all wear pants. Even the younger women generation.

  • Secularism has led them away from God's code of dress. They assume that freedom of clothing implies any type of clothing and not different styles of skirts and dresses.

    Many women want to lead and pants is what they like wearing because they really want to be men in mind even though they mockingly want to be treated as if they are women.

    I often wonder if women who only wear skirts are criticized my other women because they are not woman enough to be a woman.

    • Never implied they were inferior. Being followers doesn't mean inferior.

  • I like skirts and dresses and I usually wear them when it’s warm, but they’re uncomfortable when it’s cold outside, they ride up, and they turn around. Plus I get more attention from guys when I wear those and I usually don’t feel like dealing with them. Anyway, if guys expect girls to start wearing more skirts and dresses they should wear slacks and button-ups when they don’t have to. It’s only fair!

And 3 causal look is for a reason why do I want to dress up when Im just popping out throwing on a pair of jeans is much easier and goes with a lot more outfits.

    • And I don't understand your update.

    • I was talking about feminists who claim that wearing Jeans is "empowering" and that thinking women should be feminine is a sexist thing..

      That quote is a thousand years ago, said by a catholic medieval priest who lead peasants to fight on the crusades (without swords just peasant tools and hammers) voulantary.
      He was talking about that women will get immodest in the future

  • Women can wear whatever they want, and it's not your business.

  • This really depends on the girl.
    I have a mix of skirts and pants in my wardrobe and can say I have more skirts then pants... but wear pants more often.
    Practicality, weather, and wardrobe all go into it.
    I love to paint and go fishing, I would never wear a skirt for either of these activities. Shaving is a big reason for me I cannot wear a skirt on a day I don't shave my legs and I tend to shower every other day. I don't shave my legs unless I'm showering that day so that automatically reduces the days I'd like to wear a skirt.
    If it's cold I'm not wearing a skirt... there are stockings and leggings but honestly they just don't compare to jeans when it comes to keeping warm. I'm a total wuss when it comes to the cold though so some girls might handle it better.
    Skirts also are a bit more difficult to pair then pants, pants look good with almost any shirt style. A lot of shirt styles do not look good with skirts, like an empire shaped shirt which is shaped somewhat like a cone. Some shirts just don't work with skirts which makes shopping and dressing more of an annoyance then something I enjoy when it comes to looking for shirts.
    Location also matters, I've been to a lot of big cities and have to admit I hate wearing skirts in them. I have been followed by strangers, cat called in provocative ways (whistling or saying damn doesn't bother me so not that kind of catcalling), and even approached by groups of men (which is scary guys, if you want to approach a lady do it on your own) while wearing a skirt. It is safe to say I hate wearing skirts in cities, so if your a man in a big city you can thank rude men for that loss.

    Personally I have a lot of questions about men's wear; why don't men wear slacks more? Why don't men wear nice shoes and belts more? Why don't they wear sexy underwear like women? A little mesh would be nice!
    Joking aside I would probably get different answers from different men for each of those questions and it's the same with women.

      ye but then girls ware yoga pants which are way more revealing clingy and show camel toe so is that really an argument?

      I dont get it women ware sexy clothes to show off their bodies but then complain as they can't control which guy appreciate them. if its not a guy they fancy then they take offence at been looked at if its a guy the fancy then he can look them up and down as much as he wants. go figure

    • Yoga pants are irrelevant here. Stay on topic.

      Man you're dense. We often wear things that look good to us, and are comfortable for us. We don't usually wear something to make you happy unless that is the sole purpose. Grow the fuck up.

  • I wear skirts in spring/summer. I'd guess it's because jeans and leggings are more casual, and some girls find them more comfortable than skirts or just aren't into the frilly style of skirts.

    Skirts are annoying.
    If it's short probably boys will catcall me more often. I also must thinking about sitting position so i don't show my underwear accidentally.

    If it's long it's annoying.

    • Lol... seriously, so skirts are too revealing but tight Jeans and short pants aren't.

    • at least in my country jeans are considered more modest than short skirts. Even if it's tight fit jeans.

    • Yes but where are you from?
      And so short skirts are bad and immodest

  • I love wearing skirts and dresses! But I prefer wearing jeans because it’s more practical. With jeans I can avoid so many awkward situations and stay comfortable.

    1. The wind blowing my skirt up
    2. Guys sneaking a peek
    3. Cold/rainy weather
    4. Adjust my skirt every five minutes, because it keeps riding up
    5. Constantly checking my posture so I don’t accidentally show my panties. I’m not able to be “active” and do things that require a lot of movement.
    6. Walking upstairs, everyone below me will see everything x. x

    • Oh oh! I forgot an important detail! POCKETS! Skirts usually don’t have pockets, and if they do it doesn’t hold much, weighs the skirt down more, or looks really bulky.

  • Personally I I like a woman who wears modest shorts or pants with a modest skirt or dress over top. This way you can have the best of both worlds with out most of the bad things that go with it. Besides maybe just having an extra layer of cloths on that is.

    • Heck even leggings or tights under is fine by me.

      As for hairy legs. I don’t mind if it’s been a while since you last shaved.

      But if you worry about guys looking up a skirt or dress. Just remember that they will most likely stare are your butt in pants. So either way your most likely gonna be getting looked at in some way. That you may or may not like. Depending on the situation.

      Guys are very visual. So we like seeing you in something nice. But we do like you to be comfortable also.

    • Ok that's great!

    • What men wore were not dresses, they are kaftans, which is like a robe orlong jacket (I own some)
      so comparing it to a dress to defend your anti dress attitude is not helpful.

    • Dude, robe, kilt, dress they are all similar, they aren't pants, they don't stick to your legs. The style doesn't matter, the concept matters. They all look like dresses/skirts concept wise, so dresses aren't female specific thing. It is like you are talking about a different car model than me, they are still cars, just a different model

  • So called "feminism" is to blame. It's actually cultural Marxism. The attempt to level the playing field by redistributing social power from on group to another. They want everyone the same. They don't care if it means filling children up with dangerous drugs to block puberty or killing new born babies so women don't have to be mothers if they decide at the last minute they don't want to be. Communism is the bloodiest ideology in human history. It's perverse jealousy based obsession with "equality" denies and attempts to defy nature it's self. It operates much like a disease.
