“Women do not wear short skirts for men. When they wear short skirts for other people, it just might be to show off in front of other girls,” says Keri Wajunzi, model with Flash Models.
Here are five real reasons why women wear short skirts.
Aesthetics: Nearly every short skirt out there is more aesthetically interesting than a pair of pants or even a long skirt. They have more flare and verve. Short skirts do more to show off the leg, not to mention boots, knee socks, and shoes, which are more often than not sadly concealed under pants and long skirts
Laziness: believe it or not, short skirts are great for lazy people. As they are so small, they are exceedingly easy to put on. In all honesty, they are the closest modern alternative to loin cloths, and everyone knows clothing gets neither easier nor more rudimentary than those garments.
Mobility: medium and long skirts, especially pencil skirts and narrow skirts severely restrict movement. And long skirts that have lots of fabric get caught on things and can entangle and trip their incapacitated wearers. Obviously pants are an alternative, but short skirts are far more fun to wear.
Fitness: believe it or not, short skirts lead to excellent fitness. First, they remind the wearer of the importance of regular exercise. While it is easy to hide inconvenient fitness truths under baggy clothes and pants, short skirts bear one’s body for the whole world to see. This keeps the wearer honest and conscientious about gym attendance.
Opportunity: finally, those wearing short skirts are making the most of a fleeting opportunity. Neither their age nor fitness will last for long. Different people choose to celebrate different aspects of their bodies; their strength, their voices, their minds, and yes, their legs.
Conceding, short skirts are not always the appropriate thing to wear. But when the body type, age, and situation are aligned in favor of these minuscule garments, they are definitely worth wearing.
