Q: I got a teal skirt from Nordstrom, but it’s way too short, especially over my booty. I’m not sure if it’s okay to wear it with tights. What I can wear under it?
By Colleen Geary, fashion stylist and image consultant
A: The best fashion makes a woman look alluringly stylish, while projecting an image of good self-esteem. In our humble opinion, wearing skirts that are too short or tops that are too low cut can detract from dignity of the person who wears them.
Flatter your curves with well cut clothes that accentuate your figure without being overt. Don’t waste money on filler items to build an outfit around clothes that make you uncomfortable. Depending on your age and your body type, a few inches above the knee is usually the most attractive length for a short skirt. Longer pencil skirts can be very flattering and quite sexy as well.
Tights will not hide the fact that the skirt is too short–so say goodbye to the teal skirt and update your look with a skirt that is flattering for your body type - you will look great and feel great!
