If the hem line looks good on you and you feel comfortable wear it...but for me I have not worn anything above the knee in years....just not a good look on me and older skin does not look good and I would be very selfconscious in a short skirt/dress.

I think we just know, at least that has been true for me. With short and skirt lengths all of a sudden I didn’t feel comfortable. I think it is up to the individual, just follow what you feel is right and appropriate.

I am wondering what you think about short hemlines with respect to age. Do you think a woman over a certain age should mind her hemline with skirts and dresses, or is it anything goes as long as it looks good and fits well?
Reason I ask: today I was trying on dresses and skirts which haven’t fit in a few years due to weight gain, and after some weight loss they all fit again. I was a little surprised how short some of these were and I was only wearing them about 3 years ago. I was like, whoa mama that’s short! I don’t know what’s appropriate anymore. I’m 47 and really feeling my age lately.
Wear what makes you feel good!

Can only speak for myself. The shortest for me was at the top of the knee, but short and mini-skirts were the trend at that time and difficult to buy anything longer. I was in my mid-40's. I was glad when the trend was over. With long legs, I looked all legs and they were always cold in the winter.
Rarely wear dresses and skirts anymore, but when I do they look best on me covering the knee.

@Grouchomarx Wear what you like and like what you wear!! Age doesn't matter. It's up to each individual to wear what they want and are comfortable wearing. There will always be someone who is critical of what others choose to wear. You only have to please yourself and what anyone else thinks shouldn't matter.
Very well said! I am a senior and wear what I want and am comfortable in. If I question an outfit, I don't wear it. Please yourself not anyone else.

It's not something most women think about. I thiink it just happens naturally as women, age their skirts get a little longer. However, if a woman wants to wear thigh high skirts when she's in her 60's or 70's, that's her choice and only her choice.
