huge on catwalks but not something i could wear by itself
could work in layering (with trousers or capri's under the skirt/dress)

i wonder if it will really take off in retail , buyers were a bit scared of it's salability

a questionably 'applicable' trend, not everyone has model's legs

OH NO..... if this trend becomes well known, I can imagine almost every girl in high school..... don't even want to think about it.

Not modest, not flattering, not practical

I don't like this trend. It doesn't look good even if you have heavenly legs, just dumb.

Looks great on models... very inspirational... but not somethin I could pull off effectively myself.

I think looking like you're begging for attention is the main issue when wearing such short skirts/shorts.... I wouldn't do it myself although it might look neat on the runway sometime...

aren't you so bored of shortshortshort though? its been hot forever but i think its about to time to try something new. its totally unwearable in real life and c'mon this LOLITA epidemic on the runways, what with the models being like 12 with their short dresses that put their hoohas always on full display, figures like prepubescent boys...how about some f*cking WOMEN? no one has legs like twigs!!

didn't fashion already accept the mini when sixities knee length skirts were replaced with mod mini dresses? i think the look is sexy and fun IF you can pull it off with out it looking tacky. i guess the real trick is to try and peice it with things that are more tasteful. lets be realistic here though, ofcourse you shouldn't try to pull it off if you simply do not have the body and no a teenage girl shouldn't be wearing it in school. :p


basically YES i would wear it but i wouldn't be limiting my wardrobe to only mini shorts or skirts. i enjoy myself a good ol' knee length every now and again.

i love this trend, so and yes... WILL wear it (along with the mini dresses!!), especially since this will fit better on my 5 2 height than a pair of bermuda shorts- i feel they chop my leg in half!! And well, Sydney is full of shorts-wearing girls anyway, being as casual as it is, so I dont have to worry about strange stares (fun as that may be)
