WHAT'S THE BEST WAY TO WEAR A SHORT SKIRT WITHOUT LOOKING TRASHY?

OVER PANTS, THAT'S HOW!

Short skirts. They're sexy, fun, flirty, young, hot....but....

What if it's a windy day?

What if you have cellulite...or a big cut on your knee?

What if you always thought your legs were too skinny; knees too bony...or your legs are too fat?

What if you are, let's say, above a certain age?

What if you are visiting your mother...or mother in law?

What if you know you will have to do a lot of bending over, or getting out of a low car, and you don't want to pull a Brittany Spear's or a Paris Hilton?

What if you see a tall flight of stairs in your near future?

What if you are afraid of appearing in an upskirt video?

What if you might run into your daughter's teacher?

What if you just like the way a skirt over pants looks because it's different, funky, quirky, and a charming combination of both Sexy AND cute?

Then you must try this cool, fun, practical, hot (HELP! I'M RUNNING OUT OF ADJECTIVES) style!

CUTE, SEXY, FUN, AND PRACTICAL!

Truly, you will feel so good when wearing this style....you will feel that you are not part of the masses..... plus, the style is so versative, practical, and convenient...plus a little bit funky...a little bit edgy..and acceptable for all ages (except maybe the 90 and overcrowd).

The great thing about this style is that you can feel two ways at once. You can indeed still feel "short skirt sort of sexy" because yes,you have that short skirt on.

And now, that skirt can be even SHORTER, TIGHTER, or FLIPPIER than you would NORMALLY wear it, because you no longer have to worry about offering a free peep show to the world!

(Yes, sitting down in public is NO LONGER AN ISSUE)!

PLUS...you can feel....practical and in control! You can run up that hill (I don't know why you'd WANT to run up a hill, but who knows) without care, dash into your child's parent/teacher conference without looking like one of those trashy moms, causing raised eyebrows and snide gossip. You can roar around the playground, trying to keep up with your child. You can even climb up the sliding board and slide down with ease! (WHEEEE)!

Plus....... you are now a cool style maven!

You are unique!

Yes, you don't need to dress frumpy and boring any more, just because, say, you are a mom - or your legs are not in the greatest of shape. However....there are a few RULES to the skirt over pants style, which I shall now address.

DO NOT PICK A BAGGY SKIRT AND BAGGY PANTS AND A BAGGY TOP...because guess what? Not only will you look STILL frumpy...you'll also look like a clown...or maybe a homeless person...neither one, a good look.

Keep the bagginess at bay! You don't need to wear a super tight top...but make sure the one you choose does not poof out over the top of the skirt. (Even without the added pants, it shouldn't do that anyway)!

It's all about balance. The skirt can be a little loose - and flippy...IF both the top and the pants are somewhat tight. Get what I mean? The top can be a little loose (not TOO loose) if both the pants and skirt are tight.

BUT THE PANTS MUST NEVER BE BAGGY, NO MATTER WHAT!...Skip the baggy pants altogether. They ruin the look. It just does not work. Baggy pants make the whole thing look...not "put together." Like...the skirt is NOT supposed to be there..no matter how "right" the skirt might be. Buy some tighter pants (or wear leggings).

Do NOT...I repeat...do NOT worry that your butt looks absolutely GINORMOUS Or (fill in the blank) flat, saggy, deformed, whatever.... in these new tight pants you are buying, Do NOT obsess looking over your shoulder in the dressing room mirror.

Repeat after me: 'WHAT MY BUTT LOOKS LIKE IN THESE SUPER TIGHT NEW PANTS IS OF NO IMPORTANCE WHATSOEVER!"

Why?

Because you are going to be COVERING UP your butt with your cute new short skirt....remember? That's the whole reason we're here!

DO NOT WEAR A SKIRT THAT'S TOO LONG! Again. FRUMPY! It looks droopy and sloppy. don't get discouraged! Remember...you can now buy that hot sexy SHORT skirt that you always felt too insecure to buy in the past. Here's your chance! Make sure it is ABOVE THE KNEE OR SHORTER.

WARNING! WARNING! Anything longer than the knee LOOKS FRUMPY!

Now that you know the rules, here's another fun tidbit of advice: Do some shopping at your local Salvation Army. Take your time. Try on a whole bunch of pants and short skirts, and see which work well together.

And the best part? Your new cute wardrobe additions will hardly cost you anything! Plus...you can also MIX AND MATCH.....have fun...and be CUTE, STYLISH, AND SEXY (for a song)!

OVER PANTS, THAT'S HOW!

Ha, this is SOOO funny! I LOVE wearing a skirt over pants! It's such a cute look. I hope it doesn't catch on TOO much, though, because one of the reasons I like it so much, is that it's UNIQUE!

You are so right. You can also get away with wearing short skirts to work as long as you put something under it. Good advice!
