5 Times to Say No To Short Shorts (and Mini Skirts)

These shorts are cool, but they're not for every occasion.

Okay, I absolutely adore mini skirts and dresses. (I’m not as into shorts, though they can be nice, too.) But just like everything, these clothes have their time and place. And after seeing a few, er, missteps around town, I figured I’d go on the record about a few no-nos. Especially now that it’s just blazing hot outside and short shorts can be so tempting.

It’s a bad idea to wear micro shorts or a mini…

To church (or any other house of worship). This one is just obvious. It’s disrespectful—and distracting.

To work. Co-workers and bosses do not need to be exposed to all. Of. That.

To meet his parents…or grandparents. This goes double if those bottoms are ripped, frayed, or otherwise altered. Why start off by giving them something to freak out over ask him about?

To a wedding. Let the bride have the guests’ attention. Please. It’s, like, a wedding law.

To go bowling. Or to work out. Or any other time you’ll be publicly engaged in lots of bending…or squatting.

I left a few places out, I’m sure. So what would you add?

  1. Good day! I could have sworn I’ve visited this site before but after going through
    a few of the articles I realized it’s new to
    me. Anyways, I’m certainly happy I discovered it and I’ll be book-marking it and checking back often!

    Anywhere you need to sit down – I hate the thought of a short skirt riding up and my bare tush sitting on some public bar stool or subway seat. Ick.
